Robert Kacher Food and Wine Dinner

Robert Kacher
Food and Wine Dinner

Thursday, September 24th – 7:00 p.m.

$75 per person*

Wine collector and connoisseur, Robert (Bobby) Kacher joins us for an evening of fine food prepared and matched to wines from his hand-picked selection of boutique French wines. For the true wine aficionado, this represents an opportunity of great discussions and tasting of limited production wines from the boutique vineyards of France. The menu and paired wines are listed below for your edification. There is limited seating for this event, so please make your reservations early.

More about Robert Kacher:

What started as Bobby’s college backpacking trip through France became a lifelong passion about wine. From his earliest days in working in a wine store to his founding 22 years ago of Robert Kacher Selections, he is now a renowned wine connoisseur and educator on French wines.

During the first two decades of Robert Kacher Selections, Bobby spent almost half of each year in France, criss-crossing from region to region in an effort to select and help develop the finest portfolio of French boutique estate wines of any importer in the US.

Bobby still works as a partner with the growers and winemakers in all aspects of viticulture and vinification, constantly pushing them to produce an even higher quality product. Some of the innovations he introduced to his growers and wine makers include lowering yields, using state-of-the-art trellising, green harvesting of fruit at ‘veraison’ (the point at which grapes start to change color), hand harvesting of fruit at the point of physiological ripeness (not analytical ripeness) and doing a triage (a sorting of the grapes to rid them of damaged fruit) as the fruit is harvested.

Bobby’s dedication and passion for the wine business has resulted in numerous awards and accolades:

Recently Robert Parker named him “one of the 20 most influential wine personalities of the past 20 years."
In 2004 Bobby became Chevalier de l’Ordre du Mérite Agricole, one of only a handful of U. S. importers to ever receive the prestigious honor.
