OK, here’s the deal. Janet Cam is a former restaurateur and currently a consultant, fabulous jewelry artist, and LifeStyle Architect … many of you know Janet and if you don’t, you should. You never know what she may come up with next, but this is a new one for me: an estate wine sale of potentially distressed wines.
Here’s how she described it to me:
“We have wines from an estate for sale which may be of interest to restaurateurs for décor as the bottles are distressed but very interesting labels that include:
Chateau Mouton Rothschild ‘64
Chateau Haut Brion ‘75
Chateau d’Issan ‘57
Chateau Pain Sucre
Beaune de L’Ecu ’66 – Jaboulet Vercherre (gold coloured wire cage) – Beitzell
Approximately 300 bottles could be back-lit on a restaurant/home for décor or from a sentimental point of view there may be vintages of interest for friends, family or house gifts. We are providing recipes (sugar and vinegar ratios) to make your vinegar as I had done with collectors that I drink with in Los Angeles – What do you do with Chateau Margaux and Romanee-Conti from the 20’s — make salad dressing.
$2-$5 per bottle – or let’s make a deal.
The sale is to benefit charity – other stuff like designer clothing (Krizia), shoes (Silvia Fiorentina, JP Tod, Costume National, Delmans) Christmas gifts and décor.”
SATURDAY (Yes, That’s Tomorrow)
October 13 (9 a.m. – 3 p.m.)
6500 Wisconsin Avenue @Norwood (2 blocks from Bradley Blvd)
The 1911 Chateau LaGrange (in the foto) is a wine I acquired from a foolish Ohio restaurateur circa 1980 and is not part of the Saturday collection — but it is truly distressed.
I plan to stop by … at least to check out the shoes.
