Upcoming Winemaker Dinners at Empire State South

We have two great winemaker dinners to tell you about.  February 19th features two members of importer Kermit Lynch's wide stable of serious talent.  From France's Loire Valley, we have Catherine Breton, budding star of Vouvray and Bourgeuil reds.  From down south, in Roussillon, we'll have Christine Campadieu, of the classic Banyuls and Coullioure house, Domaine La Tour Vielle.
