Although tickets to the Forks & Corks Grand Tasting sold out in just eight minutes months before the festival, there are many opportunities to meet visiting winemakers throughout the weekend including these special events on property at Michael's Wine Cellar and Michael's On East: Friday, January 24, 2014 Domaine Ehrhart & Maison Ambroise - French Wine Dinner, 7 p.m. Michael’s Wine Dinners are spectacular events featuring visiting winemakers as host to extravagant five-course feasts designed to complement a specific winery or portfolio. On Friday, Jan. 24, Robert “Bobby” Kacher, a close friend of Michael Klauber, will bring winemakers and owners from two of his top wineries to the series of Forks & Corks events. Kacher will be joined by Corrine and Phillipe Ehrhart of Domaine Ehrhart and Bertrand Ambroise from Domaine Bertrand Ambroise during the elegant exploration of two of France’s most famous wine regions, Alsace and Burgundy. $95, plus tax and gratuity Reservations required: 941-366-0007, ext. 224 Domaine Ehrhart is a small estate of almost 52 acres located in the village of Wettolsheim, about five kilometers from Colmar. Looking out the back door of Philippe and Corinne Ehrhart’s winery, guests enjoy a view of Alsace’s noble vineyards of Steingrubler, Rosenberg, Brand and Hengst. The Ehrhart family has been making wine in this region since 1725. Two generations ago Philippe Ehrhart’s grandfather Eugene began employing organic farming methods, which he believed would help him produce better wines. Philippe and Corinne continue to farm their vineyards with the same strong commitment, and today all of the wines of the domaine are certified organic by the French government. The domaine of Bertrand Ambroise was established in the late 18th century in the village of Prémeaux-Prissey, just south of Nuits-Saint-Georges. Today the estate has expanded to 42 acres which are worked diligently by Bertrand and his family. Bertrand produces some of the finest examples of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in Burgundy. His genuine passion and his detail work in the vineyards and the cellar have created a worldwide demand for his wines.   Saturday, January 25, 2014 Forks & Corks University, 9:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Forks & Corks University provides a unique opportunity to taste and learn about rare and inspired wines during seminars led by a panel of celebrated winemakers.
