"French Connection" Wine Tasting


Next weekend we welcome back Chris Izzo who will share six wines with us that all have a "French Connection".  While some connections may be obvious, there are others that are not, and Chris will make those connections for us.  Chris has been tasting with us for the past few years first, as part of Johnson Brothers / Mutual Distributing, and then recently he joined Epiphany (sister company of Johnson Brothers / Mutual).  This will be Chris' last tasting with us as he transitions back to Mutual as a Sales Manager in their Raleigh region.  Stop by and wish Chris well, or if you have yet to meet him, now is your chance!  Chris is a wealth of information when it comes to all things wines and is truly a wine expert and aficionado!   Join us in New Bern on Friday, November 18th from 5-7pm and in Oriental on Saturday, November 19th at 2pm and again at 3pm.  

For a sneak peek of the wines, we will be tasting, keep reading...
