We defy you not to be pleasantly surprised by the white Bourgogne (Chardonnay from Burgundy, France) we’ve assembled for the white flight: Chablis from the stellar 2015, Premier Cru Chablis, and our favorite declassified Pouilly Fuisse. Next up are three outstanding expressions of old world winemaking from three countries (including Serbia!) Finally, we’re pouring three cult Paso wines from arguably the best AVA in the area – Willow Creek: Booker!, Linne Calodo!, L’Aventure!
