welcomes
Olivier Humbrecht
Masterblaster of Domaine Zind-Humbrecht
as our tour guide to the vinous and scenic glories of
the Alsace Region of France


Three Reasons why you need to be at this tasting / conversation about wine:

1. Olivier is to wine-making as Tyrion Lannister is to philosopher kings:
utterly indispensable and profoundly poignant.
2. Olivier is to wine-growing as Daenerys Targaryen is to capturing the Iron Throne:
his single minded pursuit of crafting the purest expression of terroir from the multifaceted terroirs of Alsace is the only thing that gets him out of bed in the morning
(but no, Olivier is not the Father of Dragons…yet).
3. Olivier is to Alsace as Brienne of Tarth is to Catelyn Stark: 
an advocate supreme and ultimate keeper of promises.

One Reason why you might not be with us for this tasting to end all tastings:

-the Rangers are playing the Penguins in the NHL Conference Finals…oops, no excuses!
