A Fine Time For Wining In New Orleans!

Posted by Joi

What could be a better prescription to beat the Monday mehs than a couple hours of wines, cheeses, meats and mingling with cool peeps, right? Keife & Co. hosted an intimate affair for 25 lucky Elites last Monday at this newly-opened wine and gourmet goods shop in the CBD.

The wines featured this fine evening were Brandborg Bench Lands Pinot Noir 2007 and Domaine Lafarge Coté Est 2010... which paired nicely with edible offerings from the array of goodies that Keife & Co. keep in their well-stocked fridge and decorate their shelves with (so much to look at and drool over!)

The best part about such an intimate affair? According to Ronnie R, "we had plenty of space to mix and mingle while sampling some of their excellent wines and snacking on tasty accompaniments.  The small crowd worked out great as I was able to talk with just about everyone there." Everyone got the chance to meet someone new, as well as ask questions from the knowledgable proprietors about wines and spirits to their heart's content.

Who was the lucky guest that won a bottle of one of the wines from the raffle? That would be one Tajira M, NOLA's most recent transplanted Elite!

As Jonathan D puts it so eloquently, "The Catalan white blend was delightfully quaffable and the red was complex and delicious. The staff of Keif & Co. (John, Jim and Aimee) were all incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, answering questions about wine, lesser-known spirits and bitters, and other esoteric areas of inquiry."

Thank you so very much to our gracious hosts at Keife & Co!
