We came out west together with a common desire
The fever we had migtha set the West Coast on fire
Two months later got trouble in mind
Oh my baby moved out and left me behind

But it's all right 'cause it's midnight
And I got two more bottles of wine


Emmylou Harris


You know my mantra, two bottles of wine per day keeps the Dr. away.  And you will get more than two bottles of wine each day at the Great Wine Seminar, which is back after a few years hiatus.  Check out the line-up of amazing seminars for this landmark event.

Château Lafite Rothchild
1855 First Growth
Pauillac Bordeaux

A dinner will be served prior to the tasting.

Presented by
Tanneguy Harcourt
Brand Ambassador

The Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855 declared Chateau Lafite Rothchild a First Growth. Even a century prior Maréchal de Richelieu (1755) stated "I have discovered the wine of Château Lafite to be a delicious, generous cordial, comparable to the ambrosia of the Gods of Olympus". We are ecstatic to have them join as it is the first time at the Great Wine Seminar.

A Study in Corton
Côte de Beaune
Corton-Pougets Grand Cru

Presented by Kurt Eckert

In the commune of Aloxe-Corton, in the northern end of the Côte de Beaune, more than half of the vineyard area is Grand Cru vineyards. The Grand Cru vineyard of Les Pougets is adjacent to Le Charlemagne on the mid and upper slope on varied soils of chalk and iron-rich marl. In 1914 Domaine Héritiers Louis Jadot purchased the vineyard. We begin with the Corton Pougets. A beautiful Pinot- Noir.


12:00-1:00 PM

A Study in Corton Continued
Côte de Beaune
Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru

Presented by Kurt Eckert

Working our way up the hill the upper South and West facing slopes produce the Corton Charlemagne. This is a powerful vineyard carrying the namesake of the emperor Charlemagne who owned vines in the region.  Supposedly, in honor of his wife they planted the first white vines in the region. This is an unreal tasting.

Château Rieussec
1855 First Growth

Presented by Kurt Eckert

Extending the border of Fargues and Sauternes and adjoined to Château d'Yquem is Château Rieussec.Harvested with traditional techniques for the evolution of botrytis cinerea (noble rot) Rieussec produces incredible wines one can truly say are "nectar of the gods."
