A VIP option not only allows a ticket holder to enter an hour earlier, which can be a key advantage at tasting events, they'll also preview flavors from forthcoming restaurants including Bar Agricole, Plum, and Benu and sample wines from RN74's Rajat Parr and cocktails from HMS Cocktails. The full 100 percent of proceeds go to the cause. Details after the jump.
