Artisan Wine Depot (www.artisanwinedepot.com) is is proud to partner with Legendary French Champagne House KRUG as well as San Francisco's exclusive Millennium Tower Club Room, to present an enchanting and exclusive epicurean extravaganza. This will be the ONLY opportunity to taste Krug and meet its President and CEO, Maggie Hernandez, in Northern California.
Please join us on Thursday, July 24th 2014 for a spectacular evening showcasing three versions of Champagne's most sophisticated wine. An extremely limited number of bottles of Grand Cuvee signed by 6th generation OLIVIER KRUG will be available for purchase at this event.
This event will include three elegant examples of Krug Champagne, about which Antonio Galloni (formerly of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate) said "Over the years many of the most monumental, mind-bending Champagnes I have had have emerged from these cellars in Reims."
This event will be a wonderful learning opportunity, providing in-depth comparison between Krug's excellent Champagnes, both vintage and non-vintage, as well as engaging conversation and interaction with your fellow wine lovers. This will be an experience that we truly want to share with you, our VIP Champagne lovers, in an evening not to be missed - and it will certainly sell out, so please respond immediately to be assured of a seat.
We are offering this exclusive dinner as a thank you to our loyal VIP customers and friends, so please be sure to RSVP right away. This event will be held in the exclusive private Club Room at Millenium Tower, which has a very limited 18-person seating.
Krug was established in 1843 by Johann-Joseph Krug, a German immigrant, who had previously learned his trade at Champagne Jacquesson. For many generations Krug was owned and managed by the Krug family. Some 40 years ago, the company was sold to Rémy Martin in order to help expand the distribution network. During this period the 5th generation Krug family members, Henri and Rémi, retained a degree of control as shareholders in Rémy Martin and guided the company. That ended in 1999 when Krug was sold to the luxury goods group Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy (LVMH). An LVMH manager has been president of the brand since 2005 and a 6th generation member of the Krug family, Olivier, currently is employed as a member of the tasting committee and Director of Krug, representing the company around the world.
