Gale Residences Fort Lauderdale Beach unveiled its collection of seven unique beach homes with a special wine tasting co-hosted by the development team and the Laurel Glen Vineyard, a highly regarded boutique vineyard from Sonoma, California. The intimate affair, held at the project’s Las Olas sales gallery, was attended by local influential real estate brokers, local patrons of the arts and wine enthusiasts. Laurel Glen’s owner, Bettina Sichel, was at the event to introduce and describe each of the three wines presented. Those in attendance were among the first people in the country to taste Laurel Glen’s 2013 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, which is set to debut later this month. Last year’s Laurel Glen’s 2012 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon received a 95 plus rating by Robert Parker. Guests also got to sample the 2012 Lauren Glen Vineyard Lot 44 Cabernet Sauvignon which earned a 94 plus rating by Robert Parker, as well as the 2014 Laurel Glen Counterpoint Cabernet Sauvignon, which was voted Best of the Year in 2016 by Wine Enthusiast Magazine with 93 points.
