April starts off strong with four great wineries and four perfectly paired dinners!  Pick your favorite event and prepare for an amazing night at the 2012 French Quarter Wine Festival at Maison Dupuy.

Chateau Musar - April 3, 2012
'This Lebanese winery in Ghazir was founded in 1930 by Gaston Hochar. The wines are considered the premier cru of their region with comparisons to some of the best Bordeaux's and Rhône's.  Second generation Serge Hochar will lead an informative discussion on these spectacular blends.  This is a rare opportunity to taste this remarkable property's portfolio.”

St. Supery Vineyards and Winery - April 4, 2012
'St. Supéry wines are created from two estate vineyards located in Napa Valley. Owner Emma Swain will share her diverse wines including Dollarhide Cabernet Sauvignon and their Meritage blends Élu and Virtu.  An exciting meal by Chef Farrell will accompany these fine wines.”

Chimney Rock Winery - April 10, 2012
'Chimney Rock was established in 1980 in the Stags Leap District in Napa Valley, the smallest but arguably the best Napa Valley appellation.  The wines were created with the goal of competing against the best of Bordeaux. Acclaimed winemaker Elizabeth Vianna joins us to discuss the history and future of this extraordinary winery.”

Simi Winery - April 11, 2012
'One of the oldest Sonoma Wineries founded in 1876, Simi has continued to grow as a landmark California house, branching from its beginnings in the Alexander Valley to the Russian River Valley.  Today, the portfolio of wines include cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, shiraz, pinot noir, and zinfandel.  New Orleans' beloved winemaker Steve Reeder, along with his wife Donna, will present these quality wines, including their Landslide Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon alongside the reputable cuisine of Chef Farrell.
