On the big screen, on the water, and in the Caveau...
Lots to update you on here, starting with the latest on Three Days of Glory, our documentary feature film on Burgundy. We wrapped filming at the end of November, and slowly but surely are paring down the hours and hours of footage. We had over a dozen hours of interview footage alone, and now have that down to about 4 hours of the best stuff. Next step is to get that down to about 90 minutes-worth or so, at which point things will really start to take shape.
We’ve got some amazing stuff in the can. No previous Burgundy film has assembled the talents of Aubert de Villaine, Allen Meadows, Dominique Lafon, Véronique Drouhin, a dozen more key players, and had insider access to the Hospices de Beaune auction, the Paulée de Meursault, and the Chevaliers du Tastevin. I’m super excited - we’re targeting to have the film ready for a world premiere in Burgundy this fall - stay tuned for all the updates…
Our annual tours of Burgundy and Champagne are already full for this year, but we’ve just hooked up another opportunity for you to come wine and dine in France with us! We’re hosting a wine cruise on the Seine from Paris to Normandy Nov. 2-9, and I’ll be doing on-board seminars and a Burgundy & Champagne dinner. We’ll be visiting Monet’s home at Giverny, exploring magical villages along the river, and doing it all in style on a small, luxury cruise ship. We’d love to have you join us!

I’m really looking forward to seeing you here at our Portland Caveau on April 8 & 9 for our annual spring tastings and pick-up events. We’ll be pouring great selections from the spring Club packages, and will have lots of nice bottles in stock and ready to go home with you.
The Spring and Summer pre-arrival season is about to begin - keep your eyes on your email for a steady stream of offers coming your way, including the amazing 2015 Burgundies from all of our favorite producers. When you see something you want, I highly recommend you act quickly, as everything has been selling out in record time.
As always, thanks for all your continued support. We’re blessed to have you as a customer!
