Halpern Enterprises portfolio tasting 2015

wine releasesI always look forward to the annual Halpern Enterprises’ cru fundraising event.

The wines are always well selected, and outstanding. While some of the wines are general list, many periodical Vintages offerings, many are either consignment or private order products. Consignment orders can be filled in a few days; private orders take anywhere from six to eight weeks.

Halpern Enterprises portfolio tastings are very popular judging from the huge number of people in attendance.

Generally, wineries pour more than 200 wines and no one can taste all with some credibility during the three hours, while enjoying some food.

I was particularly impressed with the red wines and cognacs in this event. Here are my recommendations (I must mention that I tasted selectively and no more than 80 wines and the cognacs).
