WineAlign is delighted to present an exclusive tasting of highly acclaimed rare wines on October 8, 2014.
Alto Vino is the importer of some of Australia and New Zealand’s best wines. Also they are the agents for Dumangin Champagne which will have 4 cuvee’s on show. This WineAlign event will showcase some examples of the wines represented by Alto Vino. They are from numerous producers and all punch above their weight in terms of quality versus price. With the small production of many of the wines, some are rarely ever opened for public tasting. All wines tasted will be available for private ordering at great prices. This is a walk-around tasting event. A selection of hors d’oeuvres, including cheese and charcuterie platters will be served. WineAlign’s David Lawrason will also be in attendance.
