Catherine’s Restaurant in Goshen, New York hosted a truly spectacular tasting dinner on January 19th Chef/owner Steve Serkes created, and his terrific staff served, a Michelin caliber meal.

Acha endlessly went from guest to guest sharing her passion and knowledge generously with all. Madina’s infectious personality and endless effort enhanced everyone’s wine experience. To put an exclamation on an already “over the top” event, we distributed some high-octane trophy’s. Three very lucky guests left with 2006 Drouhin-Laroze’s Chambertin Clos de Bèze and a dozen other fortunate guests won a bottle of 2008 Robert Sirugue’s Vosne-Romanée vieilles vignes.
The karma was magical and VDLTwine is proud to have orchestrated this wonderful Gold Medal winning evening.
