    • The Wines of Chablis – with Domaine Laroche

      Located in northeast France, the Chablis region was annexed by the Dukes of Burgundy in the fifteenth century. While it is considered the northernmost extension of the Burgundy wine region, it is separated from the Côte d’Or by the Morvan hills. In fact, the town of Beaune located is more than 70 miles away. This makes Chablis relatively isolated from other winemaking regions.

  • Wineries of Oregon – with White Rose Estate

    … Greg Sanders will easily admit that he doesn’t do anything half-way. So, it didn’t seem like a big deal for him to venture to Oregon to buy some land.
