Arbor

These are the wines that consistently make us happy.

All white wine...

If you love Sauvignon Blanc...

You will love his Muscadet.

If you love Chenin Blanc...

You will love his Muscadet. 

This is one of those rare dinners where guests will be able to taste wholly unique expressions of a wine alongside wholly inventive dishes by Chef Leonard Hollander. Most people never get to try Muscadet with age on it. For a long time Muscadet was just thought as something haphazard and commodity oriented. Jo's wines are serious without taking himself too serious.

They are wines that make you happy.

On April 26th you will meet the infectiously warm Jo Landron and taste rare curated selections from Domaine de la Louvetrie.

Jo Landron tends vines and makes wine in Muscadet Sèvre et Maine, specifically a small town called La Haye Fouassiere. Guests will get the opportunity to drink a library releases from 2007 along with 2001 Fief du Breil. There will be 5 wines, all Muscadet with the exception of his method traditional bubbles that we love, Atmospheres, which is Folle Blanche and Pinot Noir.

Jo's pulse to making wines that are infectiously delicious yet complex and layered is what separates him from the rest.

If Arbor was a winemaker

we would (hope to) be Chad Stock.

60 cases a year…

Kim Crawford is 1 million cases a year annually

Opus One is 25,000 cases a year

Many of the Minimus wines are 60 cases a year.

Yes, 60.

 

"I couldn't be more giddy to be doing this rare wine dinner with Chad Stock; him and his wines have massively influenced how I think about wine."  -The other Chad

You will taste wines that are incredibly rare and have been made with the intention of only making it once to be a representation of the moment and that growing season. They are not strange for strange sake, it is more of a pursuit of deliciousness on his terms while discovering what a truly Oregon wine is. This is something that is unparalleled. 

Chad's approach and commitment to push what is possible with wine , and frankly make wines like nobody else is what is attractive to us.

"Be humble, work with intent, keep it clean, no additives, let the wine speak for itself."

-Chad Stock

Be honest with yourself, your other Thursday plans were not important.

Treat yourself, and hang with two Chads.

Chef Leonard has giddily cooked into these wines based on our tasting  and we couldn't be any more excited to share this dinner with you.

 Wine dinners can be boring and way too contrived.

We have been thinking about ways of hosting monthly experiences where they are uniquely Arbor: the focus is on delicious and discovery, you learn something, and you just have a fun time. Wine dinners can be boring and way too contrived. This series of dinners and events will be a way for us to create a new kind of wine dinner with the wines we believe in.

You could taste hundreds of Chilean wines and not taste wines like these. 

This is where the fun of sharing these special wines with guests come in to play. Most people just don't know how or where to find them.

 

Be honest with yourself, your other Thursday plans were not as delicious.
