Rosenblum Wines & LASPCA Benefit at Swirl

[New Orleans]
A Benefit for the LASPCA with Rosenblum Wines, Tuesday November 9, 6-8pm
In 1978, veterinarian Dr. Kent Rosenblum and his wife Kathy founded Rosenblum Cellars. Over the years Rosenblum has been hailed as one of the top American wineries and called a ?mecca for zin-fanatics.? Embodying nearly three decades of winemaking tradition, Rosenblum has evolved from a passionate home-winemaking operation into a world-class winery. Today, Rosenblum Cellars is recognized as one of North America?s most acclaimed producers of zinfandel and Rh?ne varietal wines. As a veternarian, Dr. Rosenblum wanted to honor the animals that give us so much joy so he created "Ch?teau La Paws", Rh?ne-inspired blends with a California twist. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this vibrant and deliciously playful wine benefits Paws With A Cause, a charitable leader in training assistance dogs for people with disabilities. And tonight we'll also donate the proceeds from the cost of the tasting to the LASPCA. The Chateau La Paws wines will be in the lineup as well as the Rosenblum Viognier, Petite Sirah, and their award winning, highly rated "Rockpile Zinfandel". Taste five great wines, help out the SPCA, and feel free to bring your well behaved, leashed, four legged friends if you want too! This event is limited to 40 - two legged participants. Reservation and prepayment are required, call 504.304.0635 $15.

Sure, the commentary is in French. Sure, the real action doesn't start up until 1:00. But wouldn't this information come in handy next time you have a bottle of wine, a man's dress shoe, and no corkscrew?
