Maison Riviere of Saint Emillion Tasting at Rustic Cellar Wine Bar, Boca Rato

Join us at the Rustic Cellar for an impromptu tasting with Maison Riviere as they expand our Bordeaux portfolio! Maison Rivière is a family enterprise (managed by my brother Jean-Pierre and I) founded in 1875 by my great grandfather Hector Rivière. we represent one of the significant trading houses in Bordeaux region.
We own 8 wine Castles located in the most prestigious appellations
in Bordeaux (let’s see the list on the left).
Pride of Maison Rivière is Clos Des Menuts (Saint Emilion
Grand Cru), situated at the heart of Saint Emilion, the Capital of
French wine.
We are producers of red, rosé and white wines, both dry and
sweet (Sauternes).

Situated in Saint Emilion's heart, Clos des Menuts possesses
magnificent monolithic medieval cellars - among the most
beautiful of the village - in constant temperature of 12 degrees.
It reigns a religiosity convenient to the ageing of these Grand
Crus in oak barrels there.

    Excellent wines and food, well worth the price. What a treat to have the vintner there from France to tell us about his wines.

    This sounds like an interesting Tasting with a few wines from my Home Country, I unfortunately am hosting my own Amazing Wine Tasting here @ The Best Cellar With 15 or more wines from all over the world every night Wed., through Saturday.. It is for this reason that I am unable to attend other Events. Drinking Red Wine is not an option , but a Healthy necessity in Like! Thank God for Tasting Wine brings 150 new guests into my Livinf and Life at all my Wine Tastings. Enjoy the tasting and Viva La France!
    Thank you,
    Come and join us as well if you want to learn about Wine.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
