Dear Friends and Wine Lovers,
Syrah/Shiraz has long been the number one grape in Australia and the Northern Rhône. As it gains popularity
in America, it is slowly developing it’s own homegrown personality, dark, ripe and powerful with black currant aromas and a compelling
licorice, black pepper character.
For one week only, we are offering 15% off every bottle of American Syrah in the store. There is no further
discount on cases and the sale runs from October 23 to October 29th only.

Chocolate and Dessert Wine Seminar - Friday, November 3rd - Only $25
Featuring James Beard Pastry Chef of the Year, Jacques Torres
With James Beard Sommelier of the Year, Jean-Luc Le Dû
Friends, it doesn’t get better than this... an unforgettable sit down seminar pairing the world’s greatest chocolate with the most sinful
dessert wines. Our special guest,
Jacques Torres, has a long and esteemed resume. Besides winning the James Beard Pastry Chef of the Year, he was named one of
Chocolatier Magazine's 10 Best Pastry Chefs, he has hosted his own television series "Chocolate with Jacques Torres" on the Food Network
and served kings and presidents as the pastry chef at le Cirque.
His greatest tribute is probably winning the "Meilleur Ouvrier de France", an association of the best
craftsmen of France with the aim of promoting the work of the best artisans in the country. Among their accomplishments: repairing the
crystal dome protecting the Qaâba (The Holy Black Rock) in Mecca and the restoration of the Statue of Liberty in NYC. It is an honor to
have this master craftsman in our store.
Currently he can be found at Jacques Torres Chocolate (350 Hudson Street,
around the corner from our shop) where he magically transforms cocoa beans into the most wicked chocolate you have ever tasted.
Our very own Jean-Luc Le Dû has been sampling Jacques’s chocolates in a quest to find the perfect
pairings for his favorite dessert wines. The results will be available for your perusal on November 3rd.
We will be offering three seminars at 6:30, 7:00 and 7:30pm. Seating is limited and reservations are required.
The price is only $25
To reserve a seat, please e-mail
or call 212-924-6999.

navigate mondo vino.
Jean-Luc Le Dû has lectured at Degustibus @ Macy's, The Institute of Culinary Education, The Hamptons Food &
