Pomegranate, the kosher gourmet grocery store in Flatbush, Brooklyn, will supply a half-dozen dips at The Jewish Week-sponsored Grand Wine Tasting to be held Sunday, March 14, 1-5 p.m. at City Winery, in Tribeca.

The dips — including hummus, Pomegranate’s most-popular dip — and crackers will complement some 170 wines at the event. “There’s a demand for our dips,” says owner Abraham Banda.

Pomegranate, which as a grocery cannot sell liquor in New York State, sponsors a weekly lecture on Mondays at 7-9 p.m. by a sommelier with samples of kosher wine. “Our customers want to learn about great food,” says Matt Swerdloff, Pomegranate’s marketing director.
City Winery, a restaurant and winemaking facility, produces more than 250 barrels of wine a year, more than 35 of them kosher. The March 14 event is open to the public and is expected to attract more than 500 participants.  A select group of New York sommeliers, restaurateurs and wine writers will participate.
City Winery is located at 155 Varick St. Tickets are $35 in advance at www.citywinery.com/events or $40 at the door. For information, call (212) 608-0555.
