I met Judia Black a few years ago through a mutual friend, vivacious, beautiful, a yummy mummy to the MAX. I was excited to have received an invite earlier this week to an event she was hosting , a wine tasting at Ferality Boutique in the Lower Eastside, NYC. Judia is the founder and General Manager of http://enjoielife.com/, a sommelier service company that provides wine-related education, services and marketing for private and corporate clients. A ” self-professed…cork dork… who finds joy in bringing people together to share her knowledge and passion for wine and food.

I hopped into a taxi on a rainy Thursday night and off to Manhattan, to share a special selection of wines and to take a look at the  latest and hottest men’s and women’s apparel at the Ferality Show.  “The cozy exposed-brick space features racks of clothes—surrounded by rustic wooden beams—and on-trend essentials that reflect owner Blake Scotland’s bold street style.”

Judia’s dear friend, Blake Scotland writes on her website.  “On the well stumbled streets of the Lower East Side, we offer apparel ranging from premium street-wear to high-end contemporary designers, a fresh blend of American labels and International brands. Our fashions are timeless, comfortable and impeccably made. As we pull ourselves up by the bootstraps we support designers who do the same, ensuring that we remain fixedly ahead of the curve.In an economic climate (and industry) that is fast paced (and risky) we are stubborn. We are fearless. We are relentless. We do it with style. The last decade has seen the bottom drop out of .. just about everything. We are not sure what any of it means just yet. For now, there’s only one thing to do: Hustle.” http://feralityshow.com/

I had such a wonderful night, I learned about different wines, especially white wine’s since I am really only fond of red wines. Did you know that there is a white Beaujolais? A 2009 Pierre-Marie Chermette Beaujolais Blanc Cepage Chardonnay, France. I also tasted a wonderful red wine from South Africa, a 2004 Stellekaya ” Cape Cross Blend”, Merlot, Pinotage and Cabernet Sauvignon.  After the wine tasting, I met the owner of the Ferality Show, lovely Blake Scotland  and viewed all the fabulous clothes in her store.  Then I was off again, this time to the Meat-packing District for a dinner with some amazing folks in the music, wine, social media, architecture  industry. It was a fantastic rainy Thursday night, hope you enjoy my photo diary. xxx
