KERMIT LYNCH PUBLIC PORTFOLIO TASTING (San Jose)
- Enoteca la Storia 320 W St John San Jose, CA 95110 (map)
Experience how wine industry professionals pick their wines and do it with industry treasure and trend setting distributor, Kermit Lynch. In 1972, with a $5,000 loan and maybe a bit of gumption, he opened Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant with thirty-five cases of wine stacked on the floor. Enamored of the Old World wine cultures of Europe, he became a retailer, distributor, and national importer for authentic wines that express their terroir. He has had so much success shining the spotlight on small, artisan producers that he has won two James Beard awards and was knighted by the French government with their prestigious “Legion d’Honneur.”
This tasting will feature 50 white and red wines from Italy and France hand selected from the portfolio by Luke Kamman of Kermit Lynch Wine Merchants. Luke has been hand-selling Kermit wines for 8 years and will be representing the company at this event. He will be available to answer any questions you might have about the wines or the history of Kermit Lynch Wine Merchants.
The full pour list will be released Monday 1/22. Sale pricing on retail purchases and special orders will be available day of tasting only.
THIS IS A CASUAL STAND-UP TASTING. ALL SEATING WILL BE FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE AT COMMUNAL TABLES.
Buy your tickets early for this one, it is sure to be a sell-out!
