Plus! The Slovenian Wines of Kabaj
Kabaj is one of the only winemakers to grace the Wine & Spirits “Top 100” list a staggering four times. Join us at Vine Street to celebrate Jesse Silver’s new show and meet Kabaj's legendary winemaker Jean-Michel Morel.
How did a little winery from Slovenia's Goriška Brda region come to be featured on Michelin-starred wine lists across the world? A love story, naturally: Slovenian winemaker's daughter Katja Kabaj (pron. kuh-bye) fell for French oenologist Jean-Michel Morel… and they married, creating an international wine power couple that put Kabaj, and the larger Slovenian wine scene, on the map. Jean-Michel brought his Italian and French sensibilities to the Slovenian winery — along with his fondness for working with amphorae, and experimenting to see just how elegant "skin contact" wines could be. The results are some of the most fascinating wines we know! Elegant whites and serious reds. Come join us & winemaker Jean-Michel Morel to taste through his line-up of world-renowned wines.
