Hélène Garcin Returns to K&L
As you've probably gathered from my numerous posts about her over the last year, I'm a big fan of Hélène Garcin. She's probably the coolest person I've met during my trips to Bordeaux and I keep in contact with her frequently because she's incredibly active in the American market. She's definitely not one to sit back and wait for the customers to come to her! If you're one of our Hollywood customers, then I'd recommend dropping by the store this Wednesday at 5 PM to meet Hélène and her husband Patrice who are currently on vacation in California. We've invited them into the tasting bar to meet our Bordeaux-loving customers, and being the passionate winemakers they are, they're going to use part of their holiday to drink with some of you.
You can reserve a spot here for a more than reasonable five dollars. I wish I could be there, but alas duty calls up north. Be careful, however. Hélène is so charming and so incredibly cool that you might end up walking out with more wine than you planned on. If you're new to Bordeaux, she's the best possible ambassador for the category you could start with. I highly encourage you to come by and meet her.
