In my fifteen years with ABC Fine Wine & Spirits I have been given the opportunity to visit many of the world’s wine regions. While air travel is not what it used to be, I never lose my passion and enthusiasm for travel to wine country. Tomorrow I have once again been asked to pack my bags and represent my company. Our destination will be the country that produces more fine wine than any other: France.
Our journey will start in Chateauneuf-du-Pape with a tour and tasting at the historic Chateau Cabrieres. From there we will continue north visiting properities in Crozes Hermitage, Beaujolais, Pouilly-Fuisse, Santenay, Chassagne Montrachet, Meursault, Nuit St. George, Chablis and finally Champagne. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?
Stay tuned for in-depth reports on all the properties we visit and the wines that we taste. I feel confident that we will have some exciting new wines on our shelves soon after we return.
