Kermit Lynch Brings Provence to Berkeley, September 18th

Long time readers (or those who surf my archives with any regularly) will know that I'm a fan of Kermit Lynch, or more specifically, I'm a fan of the small obscure wines he manages to ferret out of the nooks and crannies of France, Germany, and Italy. In addition to being a famous globe trotting wine importer, Kermit also happens to be based in the Bay Area and his store in Berkeley is a frequent stop on many wine connissuers shopping outings. In celebration of the 2003 vintage of wines from Provence that are just about to be released, Kermit Lynch is planning a bit of a fete in collaboration with Cafe Fanny, the small cafe next door.

Saturday, September 18th, they'll be blocking off the parking lot and filling it with tables full of tasty food and wine Provençale, including some brand new wines that have never before been released in the United States. Lynch apparently also has some of his own French estate wine specially bottled and on the way for this event.

The event is from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM and there will likely be some nominal cost associated with it, but the store hasn't decided yet what that will be.
