Tasting of 10-15 wines along with small bites from Dutch's Larder
Greg Powell, of Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant and Kevin Hart, of Hart & Cru will be pouring wine from the Kermit Lynch Portfolio. The portfolio focuses entirely on small, family-owned estates in Italy and France. The focus of the wine selections is on European wines made with integrity from humble farmers. Kevin has had a great relationship with many of the producers for years after traveling France on a Kermit Lynch wine trip for three weeks across the country. The trip was one of the most intense and most educational wine experiences of his career. This is also the trip where Kevin meet Greg and the evening will have some great stories along with the incredible wines.
"For much of the last 35 years, the wine critic Robert Parker dominated the international wine scene. Parker invented the 100-point rating system for wine, and his reviews wielded such influence over sales that vintners everywhere worked to please Parker’s palate, making oaky, intensely flavored, high-alcohol wines. Kermit Lynch, meanwhile, through his wine shop in Berkeley, Calif., and also through his nationwide distribution business, chose to sell only French and Italian wines made in the unadulterated, old-school traditional style aimed at accentuating terroir — each vineyard’s unique combination of weather, soil and geography."
