Wine Tasting 12/14

Posted in Hollywood Vine Events, Uncategorized by hvine on December 8, 2010 No Comments yet

We hope you’ll remember us when you’re doing your holiday shopping and partying!

This Tuesday we welcome Tal Cohen From Selected Brands  who most of you know. We start off with a fantastic “Grower ” Champagne then

we’ll try a Big bold buttery Chardonnay. If you’re a Rombauer fan, this will knock your socks off at a more affordable price. We then move on to Monterey County and a beautiful Pinot Noir. We head north to Napa for one of my our favorite Zin producers and finish the tasting from a very prestigious Winery producing Bordeaux style Meritage. This is a tasting you don’t want to miss.
