Free Jo Landron Tasting!
We're welcoming to the shop Carole Bretin of Domaine Jo Landron, for a free tasting and a special showcase of Jo's delicious, natural sparkling and still wines from the Muscadet region.
And while you grab a glass, grab dinner from the popular Lao Lao food truck! No reservations required.
A native of the Muscadet region, Carole Bretin has been the right-hand woman of Jo Landron - "The Mustache of the Loire" - for the past 16 years. As the communications “soul" of the winery she has been the one "holding down the fort” as it pertains to international import/export and sales, allowing Jo to focus entirely on expressing his magic with his efforts the vineyard and in the wines. A trained sommelier, she is in charge of the winery’s tasting room as well, and is the day-to-day face of the estate.
Her knowledge of Jo’s wines is unquestionably as strong as the master himself. She has an intimate knowledge of the ways of biodynamics and the specific terroirs that Jo crafts into his wares. Now that Jo is nearing retirement, and gradually passing the winemaking baton to his daughter and son-in-law, Carole is now in charge of all the public relations and US market work for the estate. Please join us in welcoming Carole, as she shares with us the knowledge she’s gained by working with Jo for almost two decades.
