Attendees Only Special Offer for Terry B's Peerless Selections Wine Iimporter Dinner

First 2017 Ann Arbor Tasters Guild Event
LISTEN TO THE TEACHER
Wine Importer Dinner

with Richard Collett, Director, Peerless Selections
THURSDAY, January 26, 7:00 pm
at Terry B's, 7954 Ann Aror St., Dextger

After teaching high school science for 25 years in Jackson Michigan, Rick Collett retired in 2000 and moved on to a new profession, wine importer. Rick had been a wine enthusiast for years and member of Jackson’s Les Amis du Vin chapter, which had close associations with mine (LADV was the predecessor of Tasters Guild). The career move is not as strange as it might first seem, since today’s winegrowing and winemaking are soundly science-based.

Rick has developed an impressive portfolio of wineries and wines from France, Italy, and Argentina, including selections from one of my favorite Burgundy brokers, Jeanne Marie de Champs. His wines have been frequently featured in Ann Arbor Wine Club sales. I’m assembling an array from each country and several winegrowing regions within to give schoolteacher Rick plenty to lecture about. Oh, it won’t be a dry lecture. Rick’s very casual, self-effacing, and comical.

We’ll see that samples of the dinner wines are promptly delivered to Terry B’s executive chef Chris Huey and staff so we can post and email the menu they’ve inspired well ahead of the event.
