Recently, I had the pleasure of attending a Roederer Estate & Domaine Anderson Winemaker Dinner at La Folie San Francisco. This was an exciting evening for me as it was my first time dining at La Folie (which has been on my bucket list for a while), but I’m very familiar with Roederer Estate and Domaine Anderson so I was thrilled to enjoy their wines with the incredible La Folie cuisine. See more of this evening below.
The beautiful private room set for 16 to enjoy the intimate dinner.

Cheers to winemakers Darrin Low of Domaine Anderson and Arnaud Weyrich of Roederer Estate. This was not my first time meeting Arnaud; I had visited Roederer Estate in January of 2015 and had a lovely time learning more about Roederer Estate and his winemaking practices. See more about my visit to Roederer Estate here.
