This morning I arrived back to Atlanta from the stunningly
beautiful state of Washington. If you have not traveled to the
Pacific Northwest, you should truly make a point of doing so.
It is unlike anything you have ever seen before. Contrary to
popular belief, Washington is extremely dry consisting of
mostly farmland and desert. The land is surrounded by
large bodies of water and with their diurnal temperature swing,
Washington is an ideal region for grape growing.
So in honor of my fantastic weekend spent in Washington,
we bring you a Washington Wine Tasting!
Hedges HIP Chardonnay

Join us in welcoming Laurent Noblet, Brand Manager for Henri Bourgeois. As many of you know, one of my favorite wine regions is Loire Valley in France. With Henri Bourgeois being one of the top producers in the Loire Valley which I've proudly featured in the shop for years, it only made sense to do a special tasting of their wines.
This tasting will be a perfect opportunity to get an in-depth discussion about the Loire Valley and the 10th generation, family owned property, Henri Bourgeois. We will also introduce the wines from their newest label in New Zealand, Clos Henri!
