Every year Kermit Lynch and his next door neighbor Cafe Fanny (Alice Waters) throw a party in the parking lot that they both share in Berkeley, CA. The event is usually a celebration of Provence food and wine, and comes with live music, catered food, and lots of wine from the Kermit Lynch portfolio, including sneak peaks at wines not yet on the market. This year the event will be catered by Christopher Lee, of Eccolo Restaurant in Berkeley and Kermit will be pouring some "fresh-off-the-plane" samples of his 2003 Domaine Les Pallieres Gigondas.
I missed this event last year, and I hope to be able to attend this year.
