Once a year, we close the winery to throw the party of all parties for our dedicated CellarMaster members. Always the third Saturday of May, so it will be on the 21st of this year, is our annual Movable Feast. As those lucky to attend last year will remember, the Modern/Cajun version of the Partridge Family, L’angelus, will be performing one more time. These young brothers and sisters act (yes, I had to card them last year) put on an amazing show; the attendees got up and danced, a Conga line formed, and some members showcased their true vocal talents (and yes, they were good); final round American Idol good; not midnight Karaoke at the local bar bad.
Food will be themed around the Cajun party; whole roasted pig, gumbo, crayfish, and much, much more. Oh yeah, plenty of Montelena wines, young and old, will be pouring a plenty as we celebrate our 35th anniversary of the famous Paris tasting of 1976. In our audience will be George Taber, author of Judgement in Paris, and sole journalist to witness and write about the famed tasting.
If you’re an eligible CellarMaster member, reserve now as it is limited, and will sell out. For those who didn’t, well, sign up to become a CellarMaster now and get ready for next year. After all, I’m tasked with making this party better and better each year!
And….if you didn’t get in this year, we’re throwing an open to the public event on June 25th. Check it out at www.francnblanc.com
