Wine Tasting Featuring Expert Janet Cam: Affordable and Fabulous? Trader Joe’s Has it All

Thursday, May 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


This event has passed

Tasting of four wines with nibbles.

More than the early aughts, Janet Cam has sipped through 19th Century Madeira and Port, the best Burgundy and Bordeaux notching the benchmark wines – 1947 Cheval Blanc, 1929 Grand Cru Bordeaux, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti; where there are no bad years in Burgundy, just lackluster producers. Never the wine snob, Cam is curious about all wines including those from the Canary Islands. Janet Cam is a Culinary Strategist and wine expert, best known as the co-founder of DC’s storied restaurant, Le Pavillon, the first nouvelle cuisine restaurant in the U.S., honored with Wine Spectator’s Grand Award for their wine list. Cam is the recipient of The Wine & Spirit Education Trust II with distinction. She has completed in-country studies for certification in Burgundy, Loire and Champagne.  Cam’s clients have included Chef Peter Chang and his Q restaurant group (Q by Peter Chang, Mama Chang, and Nihao – named Esquire magazine’s best new restaurant 2020), The Cosmos Club, and Vino Volo wine bars. Cam conducted 48 wine and food pairings delivered during the Covid 19 lockdown. Most recently, she paired wines for the dinner prepared by Chef Peter Chang for the Smithsonian’s gala honoring legendary cookbook author and food historian Grace Young, the 2022 James Beard Humanitarian of the Year Award recipient.
