Dear Friends,

It's been two years since the last Barrel Tasting. After spending time talking to the wineries and the Bassin Family we have decided after thirty plus years to end the California futures program and do something a little bit different. We are pleased to announce:

The First Annual "Bassin Family Memorial California Release Tasting" to be held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Friday April 5th and Saturday April 6th 2019

This tasting will feature many of our old favorite Cabernet Sauvignon producers as well as great Pinot Noir, Syrah and "Rhone Rangers"… there is sure to be something there for everyone!  The vintners will be pouring current releases, so no more waiting for your wine to arrive.  You can pick out what you like and purchase it right away.

The format for the weekend will remain the same as before:

-A Champagne reception (7pm) and four course dinner (8pm) Friday April 5th featuring some incredible wine and amazing food carefully paired by the Mandarin Orientals superb Chefs.
