Wine     Sit Down Dinner     Personal Appearance    

We would like to invite you to join us for an intimate evening at ORTZI with Michele D'Aprix, an American winemaker in France and Spain. Michele is both making and importing accessible, all-organic wines from Catalunya, Costières de Nîmes, and the Right Bank of Bordeaux. The only American woman winemaker in all of Bordeaux, Michele apprenticed under famed vigneron Stéphane Derenoncourt. She has been the winemaker in residence at Château Beauséjour since 2008 where she makes her own label, Pentimento, in addition to helping craft the other estate wines. Michele now consults on other passion projects and most recently has merged her company, Christopher Imports, with Village Wine Imports. Michele will share her wines as we enjoy a five-course dinner prepared by Chef Michael Han. Please call ORTZI to purchase tickets at 212.730.8900. $116/per person plus tax and gratuity. Hope to see you soon!
