Michel Chapoutier Comes to Scarsdale – A Once in a Lifetime Tasting!
Saturday, November 16th | In-store | 12-4pm
“Michel Chapoutier has proven through his genius, the faith of his convictions and backbreaking attention to detail in his vineyards and in the winery that a once moribund negociant could become a beacon of inspiration and quality for the entire world. In short, every wine consumer in the world should admire his accomplishments.” – Robert Parker
If you had to pick just one time to Take a Drive to Zachys, this is it. When we had the opportunity to play host to one of the undisputed top winemakers in the world, there was no way we could pass it up: Michel Chapoutier, the legendary Rhone Valley winemaker, is coming to Zachys. And we’re determined to make his visit one for the record books!
Have Lunch at Savona with Michel Chapoutier!
The day begins with a 12:00pm lunch at nearby Scarsdale restaurant Savona. This 5 course lunch features 8 wine pairings and is priced at only $105 per person. With many of the wines being poured costing MUCH MORE than the ticket price, we think this is an absolute no-brainer! To secure your reservations please contact: Valerie Naber (firstname.lastname@example.org) or 914.798.0550 from 9 to 5 Monday through Friday.

The tasting will take place on our store’s sales floor from 12:00pm to 4:00pm
