This Saturday, September 10, 2005, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The Lenz Winery is hosting the 16th Annual Merlot World Classic.
This unique winery event features a walk-around tasting of merlots from around the world presented by distributors, as well as several local wineries.
This year Artisanal Cheese Center, and Artisanal’s Fromagers, Max McCalman and Waldemar Albrecht will present cheese pairings, specifically chosen for their compatibility with merlot.
Tickets are $40 if purchased ahead and $45 at the door and include unlimited tastings, a Lenz tasting glass, cheese sampling and a raffle ticket for several wine prizes to be raffled off starting at 6:30 p.m.
I'm still waiting to hear about what non-LI merlot will be poured...once I find out I'll pass that information along as well.
