Happy Tuesday! After a deluge last night, temperatures are hovering in the 50s in the Hamptons today — which is why we’re trying to fill these updates with as many distractions as possible. Yesterday we told you about a paint-your-own-pottery class tonight at Hamptons Art Space. Today, you can think ahead to the weekend and Friday’s Bordeaux wine-tasting class at Channing Daughters in Bridgehampton.
The class will be taught by Phillipe Newlin, who runs Duclot La Vinicole USA….we’re not sure how to pronounce that, but it’s a top Bordeaux wine-importing house owned by the Moueix family of Petrus fame (Petrus is the region’s most expensive wine producer). This helps explains why the wine tasting class is $100 per person. The hefty fee might also distract you from the weather. You’re welcome. Newlin, a longtime educator, will sample wines across regions, styles and vintages. Interested? Call the winery at 631-537-7224 for a spot.
While at Channing Daughters, you may want to pick up some rosé…no less a credible source than Eric Ripert of Le Bernardin fame recently told Business Insider that Channing and Wolffer pinks are his favorite while in the Hamptons. (The French chef owns a place in Sag Harbor.)
Pop-up in Sagaponack
A bunch of Brooklyn artists have set up a pop-up shop in a Sagaponack barn for the month of June, according to our friends at CurbedHamptons. We’re a little over the whole Brooklyn-as-a-brand thing but whatevs — we’ll take artisanal stuff where we can find it. Apparently, there are hand-dyed rugs by Aelfie, ceramics by Souda and folksy Long Island quilts by Haptic Lab. If interested in stopping into the pop-up, you have to make an appointment at 631-603-5574 (questionable business strategy there). There is no address, so perhaps the person on the other end can tell you where it is located. Best we can tell, from Architectural Digest, the pop-up is inside a barn with red, blue, and yellow doors on Hildreth Lane. Also, it is formally called BARN. Of course it is.
Our cat was pleased at the turnout…
If you missed the 5th Annual Designer Showcase at ARF’s thrift shop over the weekend, the organizers have posted this fun album to Facebook. A number of Hamptons decorators — Brian P. Brady, Jamie Drake, Kevin Hart, Tamara Magel, Mark Schryver, and Peri Wolfman — arranged vignettes from thrift-shop donations and personal collections, and over 200 guests attended. Proceeds benefitted ARF, which stands for the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons. We’re suckers for good design and cute pets, so just check out the album.
