CROSS OVER THE BRIDGE
Old Bridge Cellars Wine Importer Dinner
with Rebecca Loewy, Great Lakes Sales Director Thursday April 18, 7:00 pm
|at The Fillmore, 7954 Ann Arbor St., Dexter|
'Thanks in large part to the work of such talented importers as Old Bridge Cellars, American consumers have never had such an enormous selection of Australia's finest as well as rarest wines.' - Robert M. Parker, Jr., THE WINE ADVOCATE.
Old Bridge Cellars of Napa CA began in 1990 as a specialist in artisan-crafted wines of Australia, the likes of Cullen, Leeuwin Estate, d?Arenberg, John Duvel, Chambers, and Brokenwood. For the next decade or so, these were the talk of the town, receiving monster ratings from all the leading wine critics. While today they?ve lost some of their market appeal, their quality remains impeccable. Old Bridge?s portfolio continues to feature a dozen and a half top winegrowing estates.
Since its early days, OBC has expanded its repertoire to include wines of New Zealand, America, France, and Italy. We?ll feature a wide variety at this upcoming wine importer dinner with Rebecca Loewy. Loewy, like Bob Parker, earned a law degree, practiced for a spell, and then decided to become an advocate for wines instead of clients. When I can shoehorn in between the mobs that always surround her OBC table at trade shows, I thoroughly enjoy her wit and wisdom. She's going to prove a gifted speaker at our April 18 event.
As usual, we'll get samples of the wines to Excutive Chef Anthony de Chavez and staff well in advance of the dinner for the purpose of menu creation and then post/email the menu as soon as we receive it. Here's the wine list, including one of Australia's legendary shirazes, d'Arenberg The Dead Arm. Alongside the current release, I'll be pouring tastes of an older vintage from my home cellar.
Here's the MENU and Wine List
Asian-Inspired Shrimp Ceviche
