November Wine Club: Special Tasting from European Cellars Wednesday, Nov. 8

The November tasting will be presented by special guest Julie Raynaud, (pictured in box to right) the Western Regional Sales Manager for European Cellars. Julie will present and discuss wines from Eric Solomon Selections, Jon-David Headrick Selections, and Eric Solomon's new Indigo Wine. Julie has extensively visited the vineyards and wineries of her native France and brings her expertise to this tasting.

Eric Solomon (pictured above at left) is the nose behind the collection prized by wine aficionados far and near. Eric developed his love of wine working in England as a student and established European Cellars in 1990 after returning to the US. Jon-David Headrick (pictured above at center) encountered French wine as a student in Paris and joined European Cellars in 2005.
