Can one family, in it’s fourth generation – founded in 1880, make successful wines half a world apart? From Burgundy, France to Oregon, the Drouhin family makes its best efforts and for this dinner we will make our own assessment of their success.
Kate and Jack have spent a small amount of time (Jack says not nearly enough) in Burgundy and look forward to visiting Oregon sometime soon. On their recent Burgundy visit they spent a morning at Maison Joseph Drouhin in Beaune tasting countless beautiful white and red Burgundies – and we hope some of that Chardonnay and Pinot Noir MAGIC will join us for dinner at Gaucho with stunning dinner provided by the fabulous Kevin Costa.
