New Wines Resolutions
We began the year with New Wines Resolutions, introducing new wines to our portfolio! We resolved to share a bottle of wine with a friend, and I’m happy to say that we followed this resolution many, many times. How’d you do?
Throughout the year, we tasked our resident Southerner with various food and wine pairings, including an off-beat matchup of wines from the south of France with barbeque from the South.
Mel & Janie
Mel and Janie continued sharing their experiences via the “Through The Grapevine” blog, including Mel writing on Sustainability and Janie sharing a hilarious story about Thanksgiving in France.
Finally, we ended our year as we traditionally do, with a trip to France to taste the latest blends for our upcoming vintages.
Our last order of business in 2016 was bringing on long time friend and associate Preston Trahan to the Master Wines team. Preston is a very close friend of the family and has decades of experience in the restaurant and wine business, and we are thrilled to work with him. Based in New Orleans, Preston will be assisting Charlie with our national sales operations moving forward.
