Hello wine friends in the Washington DC area,

I would like to let you know about a fabulous opportunity to share a luncheon with the owner of one of the iconic 1855 classified Bordeaux Châteaux.

Join Sophie Schÿler of Château Kirwan, 3ième Grand Cru Classé, Appelation Margaux when she talks about her wines on Saturday, March 12 at 12.00 PM at EVO BISTRO, 1313 Old Chain Bridge Rd, McLean, VA 22101.

We are very excited to also have wines from RdV, Virginia’s premier wine estate for Bordeaux blends. This is a unique opportunity to taste Top Bordeaux and Top Virginia next to each other.
