It’s obvious with the sell-out crowds each May for the FranksWine Spring Tasting at Oberod that Kennett High School Friends of Music does indeed have a lot of friends… that like wine:-) My guess is you like enjoy Craft Brew as well! Our friends at Greenbank Mills & Philips Farm have donated their historic space and will be opening their doors to the KHS-FOM for our 1st Annual Oktoberfest!

Yes, we're kicking off Autumn at another historic property for our inaugural Walk-around Craft Brew tasting with the good folks at this restored 1600's mill that I bet you've never visited! Read more about the history of this living history museum, then click that little green RSVP Now button to help support this Delaware landmark and the KHS-FOM.

French Burgundy Wine Dinner

Jean-Claude Boisset brand ambassador Laure Guilloteau is coming to Delaware for the first time! Born and raised in Paris she fell in love with the wines of Burgundy when she was 17 years old and vowed to make a career of spreading the good word about this great wine region. Her first experience came at a family-run estate in Saint-Emilion where she worked with Bordeaux grapes. After a few internships around France she decided to go back to her favorite region, Burgundy. The 2010 harvest was her first vintage in Burgundy. During this time Gregory Patriat - winemaker of Jean-Claude Boisset - mentored Laure sharing his winemaking knowledge with her. But winemaking wasn’t enough… she wanted to be specialized in wine sales. Now Laure is happy to have settled in Nuits-Saint-Georges next to these great terroirs where she can soak it all in while representing JCB wines around the world! Chef Jacques Macq and his talented crew has constructed a Burgundy-inspired menu to pair with this stellar lineup of wines. Limited seating.
