"Even though a number of people have tried, no one has yet found a way to drink for a living."--
Jean Kerr

 I beg to differ with that opinion as I do drink for a living and have a show called "What I Drank Yesterday" now on the Instagram TV platform every day following our tastings at 3:30pm you can watch live to see how the wines showed and what the crowd picked as wine of the night!
Speaking of Instagram stars my good friends Jean Charles Boisset is one of the most interesting winery personalities that you will meet.  I when I met JCB driving Jean Charles around South Florida doing sales calls back when I worked with Republic National Distributing over 25 years ago and he has the same energy and passion today that he had back then.  We put together several wine dinners in the past and were out on more than one occasion after dinner to check out the afterhours festivities of the South Florida nightlife, we also share a common vintage… we are both 1969 babies.
The Boisset family is one of the largest landholders in Burgundy and Jean Charles married Gina Gallo, making this rather important wine family of France now joined by marriage to the largest family owned winery in the world.
Jean Charles is now based out of Napa Valley and this tasting will showcase several of the Cabernet Sauvignon based wines from the wineries that the Boisset family owns in Napa Valley as well as some of the top wines they make in Burgundy. 
Join us for a special evening with Jean Charles for a happy hour tasting from 6-7:30pm and then a seated dinner for a small group of 16 in the wine cave.  The Happy Hour is $65 + tax and chef Toni will be making a few small courses to accompany the tasting wines from 6-7:30pm.
The dinner starts at 7:30pm and is limited to 16 seated in the wine Cave.  If you are attending the dinner the happy hour is included.  The fee for the dinner is $450 + tax, for reservations call 954-523-9463 or e-mail andy@winewatch.com.

While Agoston Haraszthy was most recognized as being the Father of California viticulture, he was also the father of six illustrious children. His third son, Arpad, spent over two years studying in Champagne, France learning the craft of sparkling wine and later became the first to introduce Méthode Traditionelle sparkling wine into California winemaking. Arpad’s sparkling wine, Eclipse, was one of the most celebrated in the nineteenth century; we pay tribute to his legacy.
In partnership with the largest family-owned proprietors   of vineyards in Champagne, Buena Vista is proud to present our La Victoire Brut Champagne. This classic Champagne is made in the traditional style and is a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Elegantly crafted, it offers the heritage of an incomparable style created to delight and make all great occasions special.

Made up of 70% Pinot Noir, from Premier Cru vineyards from the Montagne de Reims, and 30% Chardonnay, mostly from Grand Cru Mesnil sur Oger and Chouilly, the wine received a dosage of 8.7 g/L. By law in Champagne, aging is 15 months minimum for non-vintage wines. Our La Victoire was aged more than 3 years.
This champagne opens with elegant and complex aromas of grapefruit followed by rich honey and brioche notes. A crisp and intense palate offers flavors of white stone fruits, peaches and pears. The wine’s impressive mouthfeel is full and rich but well balanced, leaving delightful freshness on the palate.

Each JCB wine is known by a number. And each number has deep significance for Jean-Charles Boisset, the collection’s creator and namesake. Jean-Charles was born in 1969, the year that mankind went to the moon. As such, 69 represents unlimited expression, freedom, creativity, intellectual revolution, artistry, and refinement. Of course, 69 is also a rosé brut based exclusively on pinot noir; a rosé that entwines masculinity and feminity.
