Sandra Bell at Forte Resturant


Forte Unique Mediterranean Cuisine and Gerard’s Wine and Spirits come together to present a food and wine tasting featuring Sandra Bell of Bell Winery of Napa Valley, California.

Forte Unique Mediterranean Cuisine will be serving six of Bell Winery’s best wines accompanied with fine cuisine as only Forte can present.

Established in 1995 by Jon Ucal on Bridge Avenue in Point Pleasant Borough, Forte Unique Mediterranean Cuisines specializes in the cuisines of France, Italy, and Turkey. It is one of the finest restaurants on the Jersey Shore, highly acclaimed for its superior food, extensive wine menu, outstanding service and warm décor. Its classy atmosphere is perfect for this wine tasting.

Jon Ucal and Joseph Stephens II of Gerard’s Wine & Spirits invite you to join them as they present and sample Bell’s fine Napa Valley wines with Sandra Hewitt-Bell of the winery.
Sandra says Bell wines are so well received because they have Anthony, her husband and the winemaker/owner with more than 30 years of winemaking experience and a passion for taking Cabernet Sauvignon to new heights; a brand new winery building quietly perched in the south end of Yountville; a library full of medals for their wines; and two brand-new, barely-worn bocce courts. She often states, “ I think that we really do try to honor the sense of place, and honor the sense of grape. I believe that Anthony, because of who he is, he makes wine differently than anyone else in California.”

Some of the Bell wines to be featured with Jon Ucal’s fabulous menu will include: Bell Wine Cellars Sauvignon Blanc, Lake County, California 2009; Big Guy, Red Wine, California, 2007; Bell Wine Cellars Claret, Napa Valley, 2006; Bell Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon , Napa Valley 2006; Bell Wine Cellars Syrah, Canterbury Vineyards, Sierra Foothills, 2007; and Bell Wine Chardonnay Napa Valley. It looks to be a delicious time.

After the tasting, Gerard’s will be taking orders for these Napa Valley wines which customers will be able to pick up at Gerard’s store location two blocks from Forte on Bridge Avenue.

The cost for this event is  $45 and it includes tax and gratuity. To make reservations to attend this tasting on Friday, October 14, at  Forte, please call Forte at (732) 899-5600.
