He holds a certificate from the Court of Master Sommeliers, and we are proud to have him share his expertise at the upcoming wine event.

Chateau de Valmer Vouvray $14.99/bottle

The history of Chateau De Valmer dates back to the early 15th century. Originally owned by King Charles VII of France, the current owners of the Chateau began making wine at the end of the 19th century. Aymar de Saint Venant, the 4th consecutive generation of his family to manage the property, has made significant improvements during his tenure. In the 1970s, he restored the vineyard, renovated the original buildings and winery and replanted “Le Clos,” -a historic 14 acre parcel that sits on the highest part of the estate. The estate spans 69 acres and is situated between the appellations of Vouvray and Touraine. The vineyards of Chateau de Valmer are planted on hillsides that face south/southwest in the communes of Chancay and Reugny.

Paul Durdilly Beaujolais $13.99/bottle

Domaine Paul Durdilly is a small father and son team with some of the highest vineyards in the generic Beaujolais appellation. This is one of the few 100% estate-bottled, hand harvested, indigenous yeast basic Beaujolais available in the United States. If you follow a topographical map of the Cru villages southward to the tiny hamlet of Le Bois d’Oignt you understand why this is the logical extension of the chain of hills that give us the world’s finest Gamay. The vineyards here are a geological mix of granite, schist, river debris and clay that vary remarkably from site to site in the hills around Le Bois d’Oingt. Paul’s finest parcels that make up our blend have a higher proportion of granite and limestone than the average Beaujolais.   This is a floral festival in glass with blue and dark flowers dominating. The palate is silky with raspberry/cherry notes supporting a fresh bright finish.

The wines can be purchased at Nejaimes Wines and Spirits at 164 Danbury Road, New Milford, CT. 06776

This event is sponsored by LoveArtPlay, which is a registered 501c NonProfit Arts Organization.
