Looking forward to the week ahead in San Francisco- January 27th, 2020

Dear Friends of Flatiron,

We've got another great week in the works for tastings and offers. There's been some seriously good deals recently so if you've been out of the loop nows the time to get back in it. 


This Weeks Tastings

Monday January 27th
Alsatian Wines with Domaines Schlumberger from 5 to 7pm- Founded by Nicolas Schlumberger in 1810, Domaines Schlumberger produce 100% estate-bottled wines from southern Alsace. Today, the 6th and 7th generations carry on the family tradition. Because of the aridity and steepness of these domaines, the yields are about 50% of the average for the appellation of Alsace. The result is small yields of the highest quality grapes with exceptional concentration of flavor. Whether you're a dyed-in-the-wool Alsatian wine lover or not you'll find something to love in these wines.
