Join Simple Hedonisms this Friday 4-6 pm for a Live Tasting of Steven Kent & La Rochelle Wines

Simple Hedonisms receives a fair amount of invites to attend live Twitter tastings – a format where you receive the wines, and then join other bloggers on Twitter, tasting, chatting and discussing.

I turn more of these down then accept these days, often either because of ‘day job’ travel conflicts or

often the wines are more mass market and just less interesting.

However I was super excited to receive an invitation to taste the great wines of Steven Kent (Mirassou) and his other label La Rochelle.  La Rochelle specializes in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.I discovered the La Rochelle Pinot Noir, some years ago at Pinot on The River and was a big fan.
