Please join Doug Culver from C&G wines and the L&E staff for our annual tasting of the superb Burgundies from Domaine Joseph Roty.

Seating is limited. Pre-payment secures your reservation. Fee: $85 per person.

“While some winemaking families can take credit for having lived in the same town for decades or even centuries, there are very few who can claim with credibility that they have been working the same vineyards for 300 years, as Roty can. With this sort of family history, it's no surprise that he owns some of the oldest vines in his particular area of Burgundy, Gevrey-Chambertin and Marsannay.” -Alder Yarrow, Vinography
