It's close to that time of year. Wallys Wines will once again be hosting the Union des Grands Crus Bordeaux Tasting. This time, the event will be held at the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica. Guests of the event will be able to taste the 2008 vintage of over 100 of Bordeaux's greatest Chateaux owners and winemakers. This was one of my favorite tasting events in 2010. Although the 2007 vintage was by no means the best of this decade, I did get to taste a couple of somewhat promising wines last year. (See my review of this event last year). The tasting will take place on Saturday, January 22, 2011 from 3pm to 6pm. Tickets are $59 per person.
The Barker Hanger is located at 3021 Airport Avenue #203, Santa Monica, CA 90405. Their phone number is (310) 475-0606.
