One small town restaurant opened its doors for one big time celebrity. The Goose in Darien welcomed the public for a meet and greet wine tasting with Kathie Lee Gifford.
"I'm really enjoying the ones that are more of a gathering of people, more of a conversation over the glass of wine," Gifford said.
Gifford's friends and fans alike filled The Goose to support the current Today Show host in her latest venture.
"We are so excited for her. This is such a great thing. We are good friends with her daughter Cassidy. It's such a great opportunity to see The Goose and see Kathie Lee. Everybody has come out for her. It's absolutely fantastic," said family friend and Stamford resident Missy Smith.
Gifford, a Greenwich resident, is surprised when she sees her product in local restaurants.
"I want our wines to become house wines in the really lovely restaurants. It is in four of the restaurants in Greenwich now," said Gifford.
The Gifft wine has another special connection to Greenwich.
"That's our backyard in Greenwich on the Long Island Sound. I didn't want it to be the vineyard. I wanted it to be a very personal wine," Gifford said.
