Billy Dee Williams | Pinot Wine for Days
You might be wondering why we are mentioning Billy Dee Williams. Well, our good friend, Topper, who owns The Gendarmerie, and created our favorite fragrance, has recently informed us that we have quite the fan in none other than Billy Dee Williams. Mr. Williams told us that he really enjoyed the Pineapple Jalapeno Marmalade(as well as our Chimichurri and Guava Jam) which he picked up at The Gendarmerie. Needless to say, we were thrilled. He is every bit as nice, as he is a legend.
In January, we attended the Pinot Days Wine Festival, at the Santa Monica Airport. The people who run the festival were recommended to Lourdes Gourmet by a buyer at Whole Foods Market in San Francisco. We still don’t know who the mystery buyer is, but we are very thankful that they said such nice things about us. And the owners of Pinot Days couldn’t have been nicer.
The Pinot Days event went great and we sold out of everything in less than 4 hours! A ravenous crowd of wine aficionados descended upon our booth, and customers were sampling and buying, and bringing back their friends and co-workers at a quick pace. We met so many nice people.
