We hope this email finds you healthy and well during these uncertain times. Unfortunately, with all the COVID-19 closures, we have not been able to have any in-person events and welcome you to either our Reagan Library Simi Valley campus or our Reagan Institute Washington, DC building.
However, we are excited to announce an upcoming virtual event with our very own Fred Ryan on October 23, 2020 on his brand new book, Wine and the White House: A History, a comprehensive journey through the history of White House hospitality that explores every president’s experience of wine. The fully illustrated pages also feature memorable presidential toasts, menus from historic White House gatherings, a catalog of vintages served, and spectacular new photography of the White House glassware collection. Early presidents recognized the important function wine played in entertaining at the White House. While some appreciated and enjoyed wine, others considered it merely a ceremonial necessity. Still others campaigned to outlaw wine and banned it from the White House; their successors celebrated its return. More recently, all presidents, regardless of whether they enjoyed wine themselves, have used the White House as a venue to showcase the fine wines produced in the United States.
We hope you can join us for this virtual event!
