I am always looking for an opportunity to drink superb wine and meet passionate wine professionals. If a worthwhile charity is involved the process is so much tastier. Happily, an occasion for all just came through from Sigel’s for a tasting at their Greenville Ave location on September 10th with Boisset Family Estates:
Sigel’s and Boisset Family Estates (DeLoach Vineyards, Lyeth Estate and Oceana Riesling) are partnering with Feed the Children and The Central Dallas Food Bank to help alleviate hunger in Dallas by participating in Boisset’s “Fight Against Hunger” campaign. From July through December 2009, every bottle of wine from these wineries will supplement three meals for a family in need in the U.S. Sigel’s is featuring special pricing in our stores to encourage our customers to support these efforts.
Join us at Sigel’s – Greenville on Thursday, September 10th from 5-7:30pmas Jean Charles Boisset, president of Boisset Family Estates, will be on hand to lead us through a tasting of his current releases from Oceana, Lyeth and De Loach. As a special treat he will also lead a pre-sale tasting of his upcoming releases from the stellar 2007 Burgundy vintage – featuring wines from Domaine de la Vougeraie and Jean Claude Boisset Estate.
We encourage everyone who attends to please bring a donation of canned goods to augment the donations provided by Jean Charles. On September 11th we will orchestrate a food drop where Feed The Children brings a semi-truck of food and supplies to donate to local families in need selected by the Dallas Central Food Bank. At this event, we will be donating over 50,000 pounds of food to provide more than 200,000 meals via 2,000 food & care boxes for the families selected by the Central Dallas Food Bank.
