For nearly 40 years Berkeley-based wine importer Kermit Lynch has revolutionized the wine industry by scouring the back roads of France and digging up undiscovered gems. We will pair selected vintages from two of Kermit Lynch’s benchmark producers – Domaine de Cherisey and Domaine Les Pallières – with four courses prepared by Absinthe Brasserie & Bar Chef Jamie Lauren.
