MS Walker Hosts Kentucky Derby Viewing Party

By June 28, 2022Rhode Island, Top News

MS Walker and Jackson Family Wines teams celebrated the Kentucky Derby at the Coast Guard House in Narragansett on May 7. Guests were dressed in festive, traditional Derby Day wear to enjoy alongside the venue’s natural panoramic ocean views, with additional decorative touches from a rose-and-ivy backdrop to a large-scale Kendall-Jackson wine bottle, allowing for plenty of photo opportunities before the main event. Showcased tastes included limited-release wines Kendall-Jackson Kentucky Derby Chardonnay, aged in small oak barrels, balancing notes of warm vanilla with aromas of bright tropical fruit and citrus, and Kendall-Jackson Kentucky Derby Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in small oak barrels with notes of cigar box and baking spice, accompanied by hints of black currant and dark cherry, each an official Preferred Wine of the Kentucky Derby. Also showcased were La Crema Rosé and Larceny Bourbon, which guests enjoyed in a classic Mint Julep.
