IVC Detroit

Spring Wine Tasting at the Lark

“Fabulous” was the word Ed Bartley used to describe IVC Detroit’s Spring wine tasting at The Lark Restaurant.  Marilyn & Ed Bartley came from Grosse Pointe-across town- to enjoy the beautiful Spring night on the Lark’s patio chatting with friends from metro Detroit hailing from all parts of the city & suburbs. Scott Brills thanked Co Chair Connie Hogan who spearheaded the SOLD OUT event along with IVC Board Member Jonathan Swift. Connie chose Monday May 9th along with Kay Wilson & Adrian Lark as the date for the wine tasting hoping that the herb gardens and patio would be open for the guests. The weather cooperated and Adrian shared that it was the official opening of the Lark’s patio. Everyone enjoyed the guitar music entertainment by Terry Stevenson with a bit of sing a long and dancing. Sally Gerak from Birmingham/Bloomfield The Paper was covering the event. Gail Fisher from HOUR Magazine joined the festivities. Most of all attendees enjoyed the outstanding wine selection and Lark appetizers. Voted most popular hors d’oeuvres were the marinated lamb kebobs and lobster bites along with the key lime desserts and triangle pecans. Didier Blanc Fume de Pouilly 2008 won the top choice for the white wine selection while a Napa 2006 Alpha Omega was the popular red selection. Wine sales were robust. IVC was happy to welcome new & veteran supporters. IVC promoted the upcoming Gala on June 10th honoring Michigan Supreme Court Judges. A fabulous certificate from The Lark Restaurant will be included in the Auction offerings.
