Denis Barbara of Domaine Grosbot-Barbara SATURDAY, October 22nd at 6:30PM

The story begins with Elie Grosbot whose domain began in 1910, with Elie taking over operation in 1956. In 1995, as he was approaching retirement he called Denis Barbara, a young winemaker who had just finished his studies and asked him to join in the operation of the Estate. Elie is the rootstock, with its empirical knowledge and tradition. Denis is the passion. He loves the region, winemaking and the vineyards that make up the Estate.

The fields of Grosbot-Barbara, the vineyards of Saint Pourçain, are on the eastern slope of the oldest vineyards in France. The plots span four sites on the slope of the vineyard of Saint Pourçain: Bransat, Cesset, Verneuil en Bourbonnais and Montord. We will taste the white and red wines of the Estate together with a selection of Sparkling Wines from Saumur in the Loire Valley.
