Ric Duques owner of Madison Beach Hotel is contributing to the dinner’s 3rd dinner course, a wine of generational reputation to wine aficionados. The 1964 Chateau Lafite-Rothschild Paulliac from the Bordeaux region of France is such a wine. It will be an evening to remember.

Domaine Paul Blanck: A dynasty of winemakers

Domaine Paul Blanck dates back to 1610 when Hans Blanck, the family's Austrian ancestor, acquired the first vines in Alsace. In 1846 , Jacques Philippe Blanck obtained a medal for his work as a winemaker. In 1927 , Paul Blanck and a handful of other winemakers were recognized as the driving force behind turning the site of Schlossberg into a pilot site for a future grand cru. In 1975 , with the creation of the grand cru appellation in Alsace, Bernard and Marcel Blanck, the sons, played a determining role. Schlossberg was the first to be assigned this appellation. In 1985 came a new generation of winemakers : Frédéric and Philippe. Their main preoccupation is respecting the vines and the soil upon which they are planted.

"Our main objective is to create authentic wines of pure pleasure for food and wine-lovers throughout the world." ~ Frédéric and Philippe Blanck (Owners)
