Greek Wine Dinner at Coco Bar & Bistro

October 2014

Coco Bar & Bistro played host to dozens of adventurous Buffalo wine enthusiasts willing to brave the snow and join Gates Circle Wine & Liquor for a night of great food and awesome company. We were joined by Sortiris Bafitis, portfolio manager for the wine on offer, who happily shared anecdotes about winemaking traditions in Greece and his love of olive oil from his native country. Riveting!

As always, if you made it out, thank you! If you didn’t, there’s always next time! If you’ve been to all of our dinners, wow! If you’ve never left Coco, you might be a ghost! Spooky!

Billecart-Salmon Champagne Tasting

October 2014

There are many ways to spend a Monday evening after a dreary day at the office, but we reckon spending it with a glass of sparkling wine from the oldest continuously family-owned Champagne house in France is near the top of the list. Clement Calleja, Billecart-Salmon’s brand ambassador, was kind enough to spend his evening with us, sharing the story of the label and the family behind it. Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve and Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé have long been staff favorites, and from the turn out, a lot of you enjoy it just as much. Until next time, here are some pictures to tide you over. Try not to get thirsty.

Marc Mondavi Wine Dinner at Oliver’s Restaurant

October 2014

California wine legend Marc Mondavi blew into town earlier this month to a chorus of a million corks being pulled over the unmistakable sound of an epic guitar solo. He was a perfect gentleman, and as expected, incredibly knowledgeable and engaging. The Mondavi Family is credited with bringing worldwide recognition to the wines of Napa Valley, and for good reason; their bottlings are absolutely stellar. The Charles Krug winery is the oldest winery operating in Napa Valley, carefully overseen by Marc Mondavi, his brother Peter Jr., and their father, Peter Sr.

If having one of Napa Valley’s favorite sons in town wasn’t reward enough, Oliver’s Restaurant once again set a new bar for area cuisine, creating a menu that excelled both in presentation and flavor. The dishes were a perfect compliment to the wine, with nary an odd combination in sight. The staff at Oliver’s Restaurant are gracious hosts, exceptionally accommodating, and perhaps more importantly, quick to refill empty glasses. If you were able to attend, we’re pleased to have been able to share such an exciting evening with you.
