Over the past roughly 30 months we have all done much together, apart. Tasting spirits and Champagne on a Zoom call kept us happily in contact with many of you all, but we are happy to welcome the return of in person events for D&M.

It is with great pleasure that we can say that our first in person event will be with the company and person largely responsible for our legendary wall of Armagnac: Marc Darroze! Marc's family has been fundamentally a part of the food and beverage landscape of the Landes in the southwest of France for over three generations, and Marc himself has been a worldwide champion for Armagnac for over twenty five years.

It has been over five years since Marc has been in town, so we jumped at the chance to host him and share the passion and depth of knowledge he brings to any robust conversation about Armagnac. We are keeping this close to home so to speak.

You are probably already familiar with Tequila– famously made with just one type of Agave: Blue Weber. There has been a groundswell of interest in other spirits from Mexico from outside the bounds of Jalisco state. We are happy to partner with Robert Horton who has imported small batch spirits from across Mexico for the last seven years. In his quest for the delicious and unique, Robert has traveled to twenty of the 32 states in Mexico. He has been great about sharing his passion for the history and makers of these delightful and unique Agave spirits, and we are excited to be able to share a tasting of four Agaves and a Sotol off the beaten path. If you have ever wondered how Mezcal is different from Tequila? Or what is Sotol? These bottles normally retail for over $100, so this is a great opportunity to taste these 5 different spirits. Join us Via ZOOM Wednesday April 20th at 6pm and find out!

The $40 Zoom Tasting Kit will have 5 one ounce samples of the following:

Mal De Amor Cuishe/Tepeztate Ensamble

Mal De Amor Madrecuishe/Coyote Ensemble Mazcal

Mal De Amor Sierrudo Mezcal

Rey Campero Ensamble Mezcal

Hello All! We are coming into a holiday season that is shaping up to be different than any in our memory. That said, there are some things that we here at D&M think are timeless- the confluence of good Champagne and Conversation. 

We have not been able to do any events this year for obvious reasons, but we wanted to end the year in a responsible and delicious way. We reached out to Clement Calleja of Billecart Salmon to see if he was open to joining us for a "Date Night" in early December to lead us through a flight of Champagne, and we are oh so very happy that he has agreed!   

We will be showcasing three bottles of Billecart's work with the Brut Reserve, Rose, and Sous Bois rounding out an evening of conversation over Zoom on Saturday December 5th. To make this more viable for couples and small pods, the Brut Reserve and Rose will be half bottles and the Sous Bois will be a standard bottle-- and we will provide one Champagne stoppers to keep the bubbly-- well, bubbly.   

We hope that this early December tasting will entice you with a unique look at the Billecart Salmon House and a trio of delicious Champagne. Showcasing three distinct styles and vinification processes.   

This trio is $138 an 11% discount off our normal low retail price!  Order your kit by December 1st.

Look forward to you joining us! 

An email will be sent with the Zoom link closer to the event
