Wine Tastings
Always wanted to know what distinguishes a Chardonnay from a Sauvingnon Blanc? Or did you know that Riesling is a very ancient grape that once commanded prices in excess of any wine in the world. Morris-Jumel Mansion organizes wine tastings throughout the year that will give you a chance to learn more about wine in a very romantic, historic setting. The recent Riesling event was very well received and we will announce the next installment in our wine tasting series very soon.

Interpretive programs
Throughout the year, Morris-Jumel Mansion organizes a series of lectures that illuminate a historical issue, closely related to the house. Presentations about the Dutch influence on the American Kitchen, New York City as the first capital of the United States and the early years of George Washington’s presidency are part of the insightful series of lectures at MJM.
