SOLD OUT | Wine Tasting at TMORA: The Legend, André Tchelistcheff

Thursday, October 20, 2022 from 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


The Museum of Russian Art (TMORA) and France 44 Wine & Spirits have partnered together

to present an incredible series of wine tastings in the Main Gallery of the Museum!

Join us for an exclusive after-hours experience featuring a Sommelier-led deep-dive class set amongst the artworks along with private after-hours viewing of the exhibitions and shopping at TMORA Shop.  

For our second class of the series, we’ll be focusing on André Tchelistcheff — AKA “The Winemaker’s Winemaker.” Sitting amongst walls of art, you’ll taste wines from some of the country’s most respected wineries and learn about Tchelistcheff’s legacy within California, Washington, and beyond, through his mentorship, his development of some of the most widely used winemaking techniques today, and his role in the 1973 Judgement of Paris.
