Meet the Winemaker: Benoit Roseau

We were thrilled to hear that Benoit Roseau will be in town next week and is available to host a tasting for customers at the shop! He'll be pouring his Northern Rhone gems - Syrah, Saint-Joseph and Condrieu for us this Tuesday March 10 from 5-7pm. Please stop by, meet Benoit and try his wines!
