DOTW Talks to Mixologist Jacques Bezuidenhout

A few months back, DOTW was lucky enough to sit down with Jacques Bezuidenhout, the brand ambassador for Partida Tequila. Jacques is an interesting fellow who is a master mixologist and tequila junkie. Not something that I would expect from a guy hailing from South Africa. Also, Jacques won the 2011 Brand Ambassador of the Year Award at Tales of the Cocktail. I imagine it being a little like being the Miss America of the cocktail world but I have to admit that I forgot to ask Jacques about.

DOTW Talks To Vidal Fleury

We recently had a very special wine tasting with Guy Sarton du Jonchay, the winemaster of Vidal Fleury, where we tasted through the Vidal Fleury portfolio with Mr. du Jonchay. During the tasting, we found out that Vidal Fleury is the oldest winery in the Rhone Valley having been established and in operation since 1781. Imagine my excitement when I found out that Thomas Jefferson visited the winery in 1787 in his wine tour of France and Italy and was the first person to export Vidal Fleury to the United States. Not to be too geeky, but I was an American history major and have always loved Thomas Jefferson who was a true renaissance man and wine lover!
