Louis Dressner Wine, Hogstone Pizza & Kurt!

  • Doe Bay Wine Company 109 North Beach Road Eastsound, WA, 98245 United States (map)

Join us for a very special evening with Kurt Schlatter from Bianco Rosso as he pours us some of his favorite wines from the acclaimed Louis Dressner portfolio. Louis was the first to import legends such as Occhipinti, Foradori and Clos Rougeard and he's inspired countless small importers around the world. We'll have pizza from Hogstone and a delightful selection of wines to taste from regions around Italy and France. $20 per person and please rsvp if possible!

"Louis/Dressner Selections is a wine importing company founded in the early 1990’s by Joe Dressner and his wife Denyse Louis. 

LDM, as they are known, were never interested in scores, never interested in wines with “gobs of fruit,” and never interested in highly paid wine consultants.  They are interested in low-impact, organic farming methods, and they are interested in elegant wines, especially those from the Loire Valley and Beaujolais; they were exploring these wines at a time when few others were.  Their focus has always been on the vignerons, on the people who make the wines. Joe and Denyse were visionaries, and like most visionaries, they suffered through some lean times, until the times eventually caught up with them."
