Anna Tyack of SAINT ANDRE DE FIGUIERE Here Tuesday March 3rd, 2009 To Discuss Dinner At Lavandou For Tues. April 7th, 2009

     Here are the pictures that I took of Anna Tyack ( Export Sales Manager " Vignoles & Signatures Le Club des Grands Domaines, that represents SAINT ANDRE DE FIGUIERE )when I met her for the first time here at Cleveland Park Wines & Spirits Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009 in the morning. 

     It was fun to meet her. Our rep from Country Vintners Chris Pigott had told me about her and that she would be visiting the store. I had forgotten exactly when but here she was in the store looking at our group of winemaker/owner pictures hanging around our round tasting table. The visit was so much fun with Anna that I made it the lead for my store email that morning as I had to write about the dinner at Lavandou (  Tel :202-966-3003 ) call Florence or Francis anyway on Tuesday, April 7th, 2009 just down the street from us on the same block as you walk towards the National Zoo.

     Go to : to our web page and read that email that I wrote dated this same day ( it may already be on the Archives in the News section ). I'm not going to repeat it all here. You should also go to the previous blog I just recently posted on our Lavandou dinner with the SAINT ANDRE DE FIGUIERE. that blog and the pictures will give you a good idea of what to expect as Chris Pigott and I joined Florence for lunch that afternoon and tried all seven of the Provence dry reds, whites and roses from SAINT ANDRE DE FIGUIERE ( BP 47  83250 La Londe les Maures, Provence, France  Tel : +3 (0)4 94 00 44 70  Fax : +33 (0)4 94 35 04 46 ). 

     Funny, on the map of Provence I see the town of La Londe where SAINT ANDRE DE FIGUIERE is located and just a little further down this road is the town of Le Lavandou : is that fate?!? It's good karma anyway, right?!?

     And then you add the energetic, lively, youthful charm and enthusiasm of Anna to this evening's equation at Lavandou and that will spell a grand, fun success and good time-good meal-good wine-good company time filled with so much cheer and goodwill that everything will be spilling over and there will be so many smiles to go around that we will not have room for them all by the end of this Provencal evening at Lavandou.

     Think of joining us and trying both these fine biodynamic ( all the old-vines/vieilles vignes wines are 100% organic- biodynamic )and fighting-organic wines of Provence along with Lavandou's excellent cuisine. Lavandou has been there now for seventeen years or more successfully serving our neighborhood as well as the Washington D.C. metropolitan area.

     Look forward to seeing you all at this wonderful experience to get the bad taste of Monday out of our mouths and to steel us for the rest of the week ahead.

     Cheers a tout le monde et a Anna et Chris, Florence et Francis et tout les autres. Look forward to wining and dining with you all. A notre sante.

     Also, today, Saturday, March 7th, 2009 at noon in Cleveland Park, Washington D.C. ( our nation's capitol ) it is a really warm, bit humid day and lovely to be outside in short sleeve shirts. Everyone is out - all the joggers and everyone headed to the National Zoo. Come yourselves and as you walk past us and Lavandou you've got just another couple of long blocks before you reach the Zoo and can see all the wildlife enjoying this glorious day. 

    Cheers,  TONY
