$95 Per Person – Includes Tax and Gratuity ABOUT NICOLAS BAZAN WINES The early success of Nicolas Bazan Wines is not surprising when you
consider the remarkable wine-maker Dr. Nicolas Bazan and his partnership
with the pioneering Wahle Vineyard. Carefully crafted, the four
Nicolas Bazan Wines stand alone, complement different dishes and encompass
remarkable taste qualities of superior burgundy.
The premier collection of wines exhibit a range of satisfying styles
reflecting the finest Pinot Noir grown in America’s top producing locale:
the Willamette Valley of Oregon. Wahle Vineyard features some of the oldest
vines in the Willamette Valley. They were among the first to recognize the
area’s potential to produce exceptional Pinot Noir, the notoriously thin-skinned
and difficult to raise grapes.
Nicolas Bazan Wines are the culmination of Dr. Nicolas Bazan's life
experiences: research, travel and a keen appreciation for memorable
flavors. An internationally recognized neuroscientist, Dr. Nicolas
Bazan is the Director of the LSUHSC Neuroscience Center of Excellence.
Beyond his passion for innovation in medicine, Dr. Bazan is a noted
gastronome. “My fondness for wines stems from my Argentine heritage.
This passion, along with my friendship with the Wahle family, has helped me
to realize this dream to create beautiful Pinot Noir"
