Winemaker's Triple Tasting - It was that time of year again – time for a Le Sommelier Triple Tasting!
Winemakers and winery owners from three continents traveled round the world to present their wines in our members’ lounge.
This year’s guests included:
Fred Howard, winemaker and owner of DogRidge Vineyards (McLaren Vale, South Australia) www.dogridge.com.au
David Booth, viticulturist of Fita Preta Vinhos (Alentejo, Portugal) www.fitapreta.com
Keith Nichols, winemaker and owner of Nichols Winery & Cellars (San Luis Obispo, California). www.nicholswinery.com
Both the 2005 Fita Preta and 2004 DogRidge MVP were chosen as this year's best medium to full-bodied red wine at the Sante Wine Festival. DogRidge’s 2001 and 2002 DV7 Shiraz won the same category in 2004 and 2005, respectively.
This was a unique opportunity to taste wines from all three of these boutique wineries, and to speak to the people who made them!
As a member of the Fine Wine Reserve, once again our clients gain exclusive access to VIP tastings and one-on-one attention with wine industry VIPs – all at no charge.
Nice job Bernard!
