August, When the Special Ones Are Born With a Deep Love of White Burgundy ($18)
Friday, August 25th, 2017 4 pm – 7:30 pm @ Mt Tabor Fine Wines
I’m running way behind and if I don’t get this out soon, that same behind is gonna’ get handed to me… and I don’t want it! Needless to say, this should be a great tasting. I mean, the two (of us many) birthday humans picked their favorite White Burgundies currently available. Some we have been saving for this tasting for months!
In order to get the best we can in your glass, we had to go to the expert on White Burgundy, Amber Heard. We couldn’t get a return call from Ms. Heard, or you could say, we never heard from her. So we called former boyfriend and Space X/Tesla inventor Elon Musk. Elon mentioned times Amber would put a tug on his wallet with requests for the Le Montrachet from the Domaine De La Romanee Conti ($15,000 a bottle), & the Corton Charlmagne from Coche-Dury… who knows how much that baby goes for?! That Musk wallet is basically un-tuggable so there’s that.
If we invited Amber to the tasting, we’d have to charge $5,000 for the flight. In order to throw our support behind our real customers, we decided not to invite the Heardstress.
