In June, a few days prior to both American Independence Day and French Prise de la Bastille, we close our season of tastings by marrying the best of both worlds!
Join us for this tasting, led by Alexandre Sojfer, featuring five wines from France and five of their American counterparts. We will compare their processes, tastes, and notes.
In addition to the wine tasting, we will host a separate pairing dinner with limited seating after the general wine tasting. Please note, dinner registrants are automatically enrolled in the general tasting.
