Lapping it up at Yappy Hour

EffieIs there any better pairing for wine than a good cause? On Wednesday, February 18, Chateau La Paws held a wine tasting at The Press Lounge, a posh rooftop lounge in Hell’s Kitchen. Guests were treated to wine cocktails and walked through a tasting of the brand’s chardonnay, pinot noir and—the mutt of the litter—a red wine blend.  On its labels the wine features photos of adoptable dogs from North Shore Animal League America, a no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization located in Port Washington. In 2015 Chateau La Paws and Diageo Chateau & Estates are donating $100,000 to the organization. To date, all of the dogs featured on bottle labels have been adopted, except for a fluffy sweetheart named Effie. She was at the event along with other shelter pups, and anyone interested in adopting can check out some of the cuddly critters looking for homes at: www.animalleague.org/adopt-a-pet. For those interested in drinking, see below for a fruity wine cocktail recipe.
