About the Event

Michele earned her Viticulture and Enology degree from UC Davis, and today she runs her own wine importing business and calls NYC her home. Come harvest season, Michele hops over the pond to get her hands dirty in the French soil, making wine with Pierre Bernault. Her mission is to redefine Bordeaux for a new generation of wine lovers — to swipe it of its stuffy notoriety and intimidation, getting us all to drink a glass on any day of the week.

During this wine class/discussion led by Peter Trolio from Village Wine Imports and Michele, we will taste through a selection of 5 wines from Michele's portfolio.

  • Everyone will receive 1 glass of each style of wine
