ColumbiaDC | Special Wine & Food tasting with Julie Johnson

Washington, DC
A sneak peak at the upcoming “Columbia Wine Collective” Wine Club presented by Columbia University Alumni Director Kenneth Catandella Julie Johnson, is the winemaker and owner of Tres Sabores, a winery nestled into the western Rutherford bench land of the Napa Valley. Join us for an intimate tasting through her select portfolio of estate, single-vineyard wines, each accompanied by a special appetizer. Passionate about food, wine, and the land, for the last 30 years Julie has lived on a certified organic farm, growing wine grapes, pomegranates, lemons and olives, raising her children not to mention Golden Retrievers, Guinea Hens, and sheep. There will be plenty of entertaining tales and ranch products to share (including a tasting of her olive oil) with our group. Wines for the evening will include her Double Gold Medal award winning estate 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford Estate Zinfandel (94pts), Farina Vineyard Sauvignon blanc, and Guarino Vineyard Petite Sirah.

Let's celebrate the “three flavors” in each glass of wine: those of the vine, the terroir, and the spirit of the good company around the table. Hope to see you there.
