Wines in the Wild

Over 60 of Western New York’s finest restaurants and wine merchants gathered at the Buffalo Zoo on July 23rd for their annual Wines in the Wild fundraiser. Gates Circle Wine & Liquor has been in attendance serving wine to the masses for several years running, and we were all more than happy to return and show our support. All proceeds from the event go to the zoo’s Adopt an Animal program, substantially reducing the grocery bill for all of the critters in their care. It’s not often you get to contribute to a worthy cause while drinking and eating in the middle of a public space, so it’s no surprise Buffalonians showed up in force to sample wine and treats from the region.

Gates Circle Wine and Liquor took home the Best Wine award, so we’d like to extend our thanks to the judges and our community. Hopefully the pictures below accurately depict how much fun it was sharing drinks with all of you!

Best of WNY/Best of Buffalo Party

Thursday, June 19th was the Buffalo Spree Magazine for the Best of WNY Party at Shea’s Performing Arts Center. The 2014 Buffalo Spree Best of WNY Winners were revealed at one of summer’s best cocktail parties. Guests enjoyed food, wine and beer tastings, music by Dr. Wisz and a silent auction. We were there in numbers and, as you’ll see below, had a phenomenal time. Just another reason to come to our store and join the family – we’re serious about our Wine & Liquor, but trust us, we love to appreciate it just as much. Hope to see you next time!

Tastings were provided by: Bacchus, D’Avolio, Daniel’s Restaurant, Delish, Gates Circle Wine & Liquor, GiGi’s Cucina Povera, Lake Effect Ice Cream, The Lodge Bar & Grill, My Burger Bar, My Tomato Pie, North American Breweries, Osteria 166, Providence Social, Reuben’s NY Deli, Ristorante Lombardo, Salvatore’s Italian Gardens, Soho Burger Bar, Spot Coffee and Sun Restaurant.
