Jura Wine Tasting with Jean-Francois Bourdy
of Domaine Jean Bourdy

Thursday, Nov. 6 6:30 p.m.

Folks, this will be the tasting of the year! Some of the world’s greatest wines currently rest in the cellars of Jean Bourdy and his family, who have been making wines for seven generations.

We will present a variety of the domaine’s red, white and sparkling wines from this sub-alpine region of the French Alps. Though there are wines available going back to the 1700’s, we will taste only from six decades! The most engaging M. Bourdy will be in attendance, to share his knowledge and enthusiasm.

Seating is limited. Please contact Liner & Elsen or purchase your reservations online. Price per person is $175.

Join us for superb evening of wines from Allegrini, one of Italy’s most well-regarded wineries in the Veneto. Robin Shay, export manager for the winery, will be on hand to discuss the wines.

We are very pleased to partner with Tabla restaurant in SE Portland for this great food and wine event: the restaurant is ours for the evening, so there will be ample seating available.

Please contact Liner & Elsen or purchase your reservations online. Price per person is $80, inclusive.
