On Wednesday, April 3rd, YRB attended the launch of Magnifico Giornata , a new sparkling wine infused essence collection hosted by VH1's Carrie Keagan, a partner in the brand.
The event was held at the coveted Beaumarchais in New York's meatpacking district, a venue known for their extravagant weekend brunch parties.
Each of the essences were available for guests to sample and enjoy, including: Ginger Pêche, Grapefruit Blanc, and Lavender Honey.
In addition to passed hors d'oeuvres, a pairing table was arranged so that guests could pair small bites created specially to compliment each of the essences.
When guests weren't sampling the product, they were enjoying tunes spun by renowned New York DJ, Jeffrey Tonnesen. At 8:30pm, Carrie Keagan formerly kicked off the event by saying a few words about the brand. She then introduced the 1st of 3 performances by burlesque troop Nuit Blanche.

On the way out, guests were treated to complimentary gift bags featuring two bottles of Magnifico Giornata and decadent truffles to take home.
