The State Department will be serving Treveri Cellars’ Sparkling Rose’ at an upcoming 4th of July event, according to Jason L. Larkin, Head Chef at the U.S. State Department in Washington D.C. The wine has been selected as part of a celebration showcasing American Culture.
“The Independence Day Celebration is hosted by the Secretary in honor of the Diplomatic Corps of Ambassadors as a way of showcasing American Culture as an important part of maintaining close diplomatic ties between nations. We emphasize foods typically served in America during the July Fourth holiday,” says Larkin.
The menu will feature traditional regional American fare, with updated/refined presentations. The theme of the event this year is the thirteen original British Colonies on the Atlantic coast of North American founded between 1607 (Virginia) and 1733 (Georgia). The Colonies began collaborating at the Albany Congress of 1754 to demand their rights and set up a Continental Congress that declared independence in 1776 and formed the states of the United States of America.
Treveri Cellars was also featured at a December 2011 Holiday Reception for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Yeah for the “other” Washington! Washington State and Yakima *bubbly*.
