We love sharing our passion for wine, cheese, charcuterie and the art of entertaining. In addition to offering daily tasting of our cheese and charcuterie, throughout the year we will also host a number of wine tastings, hands-on classes, trunk shows, and private events.

Saturdays with Skurnik
We have tons of exciting things planned at La Bergerie to start this year! We've had a great first month, we are especially grateful to everyone who has stopped by to get some fresh bread and try out our in-house cured meats. Another part of what we do is providing quality wine, from everyday pours to wines that you can cellar and age for years to come. That's what we love about the portfolio of Skurnik wines and why we have enjoyed working with them since Otto's opened almost five years ago!
As a part of our relationship with Skurnik, we are very fortunate to have David Salinas come up to Fredericksburg for six Saturdays over the next three months. Instead of bringing a 'grab bag' of wines, he will be sampling several wines from individual producers. This is the next best thing to actually visiting these producers, it is an opportunity to really understand what goes into the process of making these wines from vineyard to bottle. These are all family run estates from Germany and Austria who share a respect for the past while stepping responsibly...more

Dönnhoff + Wallner
Next in our "Saturdays with Skurnik" tasting series we will be visiting wines from two oft overlooked regions in the Teutonic wine world. First we will visit the compelling wines from Dönnhoff, a 200 year old family estate focused on cultivating Riesling from Erste Lage (Grand Cru) vineyard sites in the Nahe region of Germany.
Next we visit the tiny region of Sud-Burgenland in Austria. Gerhard Wallner makes earthy reds out of native varietals. He has the only St. Laurent vineyards in the region though Blaufrankisch makes up a significant amount of his production. His wines represent great value and expression of that little corner of Austria.more

Join us on Friday from 5-7 to taste through Regan and Carey Medor's first releases of Texas wines! Regan's wine making approach is to let the wine make itself, with the least amount of intervention in the process as possible. Come meet the newest addition to the Texas wine scene and taste some all Texas juice.more

This Saturday, we are upping the count to featuring three producers! The tasting goes from the minerality of Hexamer to the classic balance of Piemont, and finally to the expressive wine of Glatzer. From Nahe to the Mosel in Germany to Carnuntum in Austria, these are wines of particularly good value given their sense of place and quality. There is also a freshness that runs through the wines from each of these producers, especially pertinent considering the spring and summer are nearly upon us!more
