We enjoyed a lovely and fun Chablis Event in San Francisco where we first entered a Chablis-themed Escape Room at Jardiniere San Francisco and our Team used strategy creativity and logic to solve puzzles and unlock the key to escape in under an hour. We were told our Team beat the current record!! The Chablis Tasting immediately followed and was led by Christian Moreau of Domaine Christian Moreau Pere and Fils who shared his knowledge and passion for Chablis including a Certified Organic Wine. See all the Chablis Tastings we experienced below and our photos from the Escape Room in our Slideshow. Santé!
