The streets of downtown Chicago served as a beautiful backdrop as we sat down with representatives of 15 of our producers from France at our Grand Tasting 2017 event yesterday. Sharing insights and stories (and even a song!), these incredible people conveyed both passion and purpose in their answers to compelling questions that provide a glimpse into the lives of those who produce these gorgeous wines.
Over the coming months, we will be sharing segments from these interviews in a special series in which we pull back the curtain and give our producers a chance to tell their tales in their own voice. In addition to interviews from our Chicago event, we will have other videos featuring our producers at home, in the vineyard, in the cellar and abroad. Look here on our blog, Sur Le Zinc, or on our Facebook page or YouTube channel for these features.
Here is a quick look at the great people that bring us these great wines and the stories that go with them.
