Fall Beaune, Age of Riesling and Rinascimento Wine Co. Tasting



A long but amazing day. First, all good days start out with a BLT and that is what I had for breakfast over at Norms diner on Pico. Best to eat breakfast at a place that serves breakfast all day in my opinion.

So the big day was the SoCal Annual Fall Tasting for Beaune Imports, The Age of Riesling and Rinascimento Imports. We had over 200 wines for tasting at Upstairs 2 @ the Wine House. There was also a retrospective tasting of Didier Dagueneau wines from 1994 to 2006.

In a word, awesome.

Here are a few photos from the tasting.
