Sommeliers tend to be some of the most passionate, knowledgeable, and sometimes, opinionated people in the wine business, but certain wines are universally loved by virtually all of them, enter the wines from “The Gang of Four.” When a guest orders one of these wines off their wine lists, sommeliers immediately get excited, as they believe that they have a “wine guy” in the house.
The Gang of Four are arguably, the four greatest wine producers in Beaujolais (the zone at the tail end of Burgundy where the treasured Pinot Noir grapes from the Cote d’Or, turn to Gamay Noir). The wines that they produce particularly in the town of Villie-Morgon, are absolutely delicious and irresistible in their youth but with age, they develop a personality all their own and not unlike, the pinot-like wines from their illustrious neighbors.
It is mind-boggling that three of these extraordinary wine producers will be here at Hawaii Food & Wine Festival to walk you through their vineyards, while sipping on multiple vintages of their prized wines. Please welcome Jean and Agnes Foillard, Charly Thevenet, and Mathieu Lapierre to the shores of Waikiki. You need not be a somm to enjoy this tasting, but you will soon witness what all the fuss is about. Join us, you will not regret it!
Limited to 50 attendees.
