Discovering Edmond De Rothschild's Portfolio with BONUS Bubbly Tasting!

Saturday, May 13, 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The name Rothschild is associated with that of legend, with the production of Chateau Lafite, one of the most prestigious Chateaus in Bordeaux and arguably the world. Baron Edmond de Rothschild continued to expand the now infamous name with a campaign to produce quality wines from around the world with the “Compagnie Vinicole Baron Edmond de Rothschild”. Today, Benjamin de Rothschild and his wife, Ariane, are continuing this project in every continent, applying their high standards to crafting quality wines with techniques that are rooted in authenticity and respect for the environment and the land. Join us this Saturday as we discover what this masterful family has done across the globe when we open a number of select wines from Edmond de Rothchild's Profolio.

And what tasting wouldn’t be complete without bubbles? As if Rothschild isn’t enough, we will be popping corks on some amazingly priced bubbly from Champagne and a little extra from Washington State.
