Walpole Artisans Host Wine Tasting Event
Dissecting Bordeaux with Wine and Song was the theme for the wine tasting event to benefit the Walpole Artisans held October 14th. Held in David Howell's wonderful studio and surrounded by his vibrant abstract paintings and pastoral art, tasters were lead through six varietals that in various proportions are used to make Bordeaux style wines. An old world Bordeaux wine from Medoc and a New World wine from Napa Valley capped the tasting.
Between tastings the Jess Carr trio provided songs to complement the wine and stimulate the analysis. This was the second benefit of this type. Last year the Artisans held "Wine, Women and Song" with Lynne and Jay Kerr. David Howell served as the sommelier for both events.
