Brent’s selection of imported European and domestic cheeses, never disappoints. He has singlehandedly raised the standards of the kosher cheese industry to the delight of both the Jewish and non Jewish markets.

Among my favorite wines of the evening was the Reserve Syrah/ Viognier 2010. Full bodied and with gripping tannins, it showed plum, berries and currant fruits with subtle notes of roasted meat and earthy minerals. My co-blogger, SYR, had special praise for their Special Reserve White 2010, a blend of Chardonnay, Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc. Exhibiting only the barest of wood it showed abundant peach, nectarine and apricot all coming together for a long finish.

We both agreed, however, that the Special Reserve Red 2007 was in a class by itself! Dark garnet in color, full-bodied but with a remarkable sense of lightness on the palate. On the nose, it opened with berry-cherry before introducing flavors of currants, red cherries and wild berries, on a background of sweet cedar and dark chocolate. Long and generous.

Gil Shatsberg heads winemaking and vineyard management at Recanati Winery, one of Israel’s top five wine producers and an international standard bearer for fine quality Israeli wines. Shatsberg’s credentials include managing and making wine for seven years at the critically acclaimed Amphorae Vineyard. In early 2008, Gil took over from former Recanati winemaker Lewis Pasco, who left to pursue new career.

Our faithful readers are already familiar with Igal Fedida. Igal was born and raised in Israel, moved to the United States at an early age to pursue a successful business career in construction, design and remodeling. Being of curious and deeply spiritual nature, however, he decided to take some time to get to know the World and he traveled to many distant and unusual pockets of our home planet. He enjoyed drawing, sketching and design since an early age and he discovered the love for photography during his travels, capturing images of nature and people alike.

Returning to Los Angeles, he enrolled in intensive photography study program at the UCLA. Exploring the world of photography, his need for expression drove him to develop a unique form where he combined Polaroid photographs with water color in order to deepen the effect of the image. In doing so he discovered that his need to express the nature and the World that surrounds us far surpasses the limited potential of photography. Subsequently, as if an invisible hand pointed a direction, the magic door opened and he was pulled into the world of painting.

Completely self taught, over the time he developed his own fascinating style of contrasting images. His black and white collection clearly expresses his inner search of balance between order and chaos, good and evil and evermore constant yin and yang presence in life. On the opposite to this sharp collection stand abstracts filled with mesmerizing colors inspired by nature and God alike. Some of his paintings carry deep meanings about the creation and the world from ‘big bang” and Adam and Eve to modern day socialites while others are visually hypnotizing, energy filled abstracts of strikingly vivacious colors.

Brent Delman (thecheeseguy.com), will present us with a delectable selection of imported cheeses. World of Chantilly will bring us their superb selection of award winning pastries.

Please reserve your tickets at the Kosher Wine Society‘s website (space is limited as the gallery is small), for what promises to be an incredible Night of wine and Art, this coming Wednesday from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm (Eastern Time) at the Igal Fedida Gallery (1482 First Avenue, between 77 and 78 in Manhattan).

Hope to see there!
