Burghound Tasting and Dinner


Recommended Posts

I normally don't publicize events, but I consider Allen Meadows (aka Burghound) to be a dear friend, and I'm more than happy to alert everyone to both the Friday-night tasting and the Saturday-night dinner, both of which are filling up quickly. Allen is widely considered to be the most knowledgeable Burgundy expert in the world (certainly outside of Burgundy proper). I'll be at the Friday tasting, and hope to meet some of you there. Here are the details:
