As a retailer of fine wines, it is impossible not to love the spectacular wines of Burgundy. The greatest tragedy of loving these wines is not tasting the great ones often enough. Selfishly, we thought hosting a Burgundy Festival would be the perfect opportunity to celebrate the wines of the region by tasting and sharing them with some of our friends, customers, restaurateurs, suppliers, and producers. During this two-day extravaganza we will be able to drink some of the rarest wines of Burgundy due largely in part to the amazing generosity of our supplier partners.
We have partnered with the Growe Foundation, a local non-profit organization that provides elementary schools with organic vegetable gardens and a Garden to Table program to teach children about healthy eating and caring for the environment in schools. The proceeds from our tasting and seminar will support Growe’s efforts to teach children in our community how their food choices affect the health of their bodies and the health of the planet.
For those who have already been bit by the Burgundy bug, this weekend will be a vinous paradise. For anyone new to Burgundy, drink and taste at your own risk. Once you have the “Burgundy sickness” the passion for these great wines and phenomenal region will continue to grow. We hope to inspire, educate, and satisfy with our special events.
