Whether it’s bold, full-bodied or elegant, every bottle of wine
boasts a unique and distinctive taste, and alumni and friends had
the opportunity to try some of Long Island’s finest at a Taste of
Italy on the North Fork.
at Diliberto Winery
in Jamesport, over 50 alumni and friends enjoyed pasta, hors
d’oeuvres and delicious wines as they reminisced with friends.
Singer Tony Grant – formerly of the 1950s musical group the
Fireflies – performed songs to create a fun and festive
environment. Many of the alumni and friends who attended are
The McCallen Society, a giving society comprised of donors who
include St. John’s in their estate plans.
In addition to providing wine at this event, Sal Diliberto ’70L –
the owner of Diliberto Winery – will also be providing wine for
tasting at the
14th Annual Summer Concert and Barbeque, exclusively for
members of The McCallen Society and
The Loughlin Society.
