On this special evening, while the full moon rises from the east, the sun will be setting to the west. We will take in this beautiful celestial event while Ken shares his most legendary wine - Par Avion! Par Avion is the label name for one of the most unique winemaking projects ever undertaken. In 1999, Ken flew to Burgundy and harvested grapes from a vineyard in Morey St Denis, Burgundy. He then air-freighted the grapes (in whole clusters) back to California and vinified them at Ancien winery. This had never been done before, and it has not been done since. Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance to taste this revered and much sought after wine!
