"Know Your Importers" Dinner with Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Thursday, April 13 at 6:30pm
“Importers have played a central, even defining, role in the emergence and growth of American wine culture. Combining impeccable taste with evangelical zeal, people like Kermit Lynch, Robert Chadderdon, Robert Haas, and Terry Theise have not only introduced Americans to many of the greatest wines that Europe has to offer; they have helped cultivate several generations of palates. “ — Slate
Kermit Lynch has been a pioneer, introducing “wines made in the unadulterated, old-school traditional style aimed at accentuating terroir” (New York Times) by vignerons whose names are now iconic. He was also the first importer to have wines shipped in refrigerated containers to avoid heat damage, now standard practice.
The Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant label on the back of each bottle includes a quote from Thomas Jefferson, “Good wine is a necessity of life for me”, so it is apt that we invite you to join us at L'Auberge Chez François on Jefferson's birthday, April 13th, for a dinner featuring selections from their French portfolio, presented by Thomas Morgan of Kermit Lynch.
