VEUVE FOURNY & FILS PAIRED TASTING (San Jose)

$80 per person includes champagne tasting & food pairings (excludes gratuity and tax)

EXCLUSIVE SOUTH BAY EVENT!

Champagne Tasting with Charles-Henry Fourny

of

Veuve Fourny & Fils

Champagne Veuve Fourny & Fils has been an active family domaine since 1856. The estate is located in the prestigious Côte des Blancs, in the premier cru village of Vertus. Brothers Charles-Henry and Emmanuel Fourny sustainably farm nearly nine hectares of vineyards and have been carrying on the family winegrowing tradition since 1993.

Veuve Fourny produces classic grower Champagne, raising pedigreed fruit, adhering to high standards, and hand-crafting wines that showcase the chalky terroir of Vertus. The house style at Veuve Fourny is best characterized as classic Côte des Blancs: a fine bead, rich, deep aromatics, and a complex minerality emphasizing freshness and purity.

The Fournys believe in minimal dosage for all of their Champagnes, preferring to let the individual terroirs express themselves more clearly. This practice, in addition to their dedication to partial malolactic fermentations in their overall blends, impeccable vineyard management, owning old vines, and their decision to age most base wine partially in barrel, all contribute to their unique style.

In an exclusive South Bay engagement, we’ll have Charles-Henry Fourny on hand to discuss his family’s history, their winegrowing practices and their winemaking philosophy as he leads us through a tasting of his some of his family’s wines.  Each wine will be paired with a specially prepared small-plates menu.Champagne fans – don’t miss out on this!

This is a seated tasting event, reservations with a credit card are required. Cancellations made with less than a 48 hour advance notice will incur a $50 fee per person. When you make your reservation please enter “Champagne” in the notes.

Wine Wednesday Conti Zecca Tasting presented by Girasole Imports

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018
6:30 to 8:30pm

Casual, walk-up tasting.  

Conti Zecca is considered one of the most respected wineries in Puglia. Dating back to the year 1500, Conti Zecca’s noble founders settled in Salento purchasing large plots of land to launch an agricultural venture. In 1935, Count Alcibiade Zecca focused the family’s efforts on winemaking. Several years later, his son Count Giuseppe implemented new winemaking techniques in the vineyard and cellar, including bottling the wine for commercial sale. Today, the family’s next generation — Counts Alcibiade, Francesco, Luciano, and Mario — continue to produce quality wines through a perfect balance of tradition and innovation.
