In Dave McIntyre’s Thanksgiving blogpost, he gives us all a heads up to an important annual benefit, Uncorked D.C., which benefits So Others Might Eat.
“Wine is a generous beverage. It makes us feel generous. You don’t see cognac auctions to benefit charity, but wine auctions are famous, from the Hospice in Beaune this time each year, to the Napa Valley Wine Auction, to the American Heart Association’s Hearts Delight each May here in D.C. – and of course, Uncorked D.C.,” Dave says.
And in discussing the stellar roster of wines being paired with the exquisite food served that evening, Dave commends Virginia’s Thibaut-Janisson Fizz, a great bubbly from outside Charlottesville. It’s 100% Chardonnay, with creamy apple and peach flavors. Unlike most VA wines, this one is available at retail rather than at a tasting room. Here’s a link to the Thibaut-Janisson website.
