Auction of Johnny Apple's Wine Collection, April 25


Recommended Posts

From an email I received from The Potomack Company:

Tales and Tastings with

Mrs. R.W. "Johnny" Apple

Belle Haven Country Club

6023 Fort Hunt Road

Alexandria, VA 22307

Thursday, April 22nd ~ 7:00pm

The Potomack Company invites you to join Mrs. R.W. Apple, Jr. on Thursday, April 22, 2010 for tales from New York Times political, food, and wine writer R.W. "Johnny" Apple's book, Far Flung and Well Fed, and hors d'oeuvres featured in the book.

Meet Potomack's wine specialist, Jason Whiteside, for insight on Apple's wine collection to be auctioned at Belle Haven on Sunday, April 25th.

"Johnny Apple was one of the world's most opinionated and discriminating gastronomes. He wasn't someone who tolerated inferior wines or mediocre food. Anything he collected in his own cellar he planned to drink and enjoy. Now another lucky person may be the beneficiary of his connoisseurship and hopefully, will take as much pleasure from drinking some of these gems as Johnny would have."

The Inn at Little Washington

Price: $40 per person, includes signed copy of Far Flung and Well Fed, hors d'oeuvres, wine, and beer.
