Château de Brézé has a long and storied history, first being mentioned in texts in 1068, lauded by King René of Anjou in the 15th century and served at all the royal courts. In 1957, when the AOC of Saumur Champigny was established, the owner of Château de Brézé refused to be part of the appellation, saying that his estate's vineyards were the best and deserved an appellation all their own. And he was probably right. Unfortunately, the wines from those exceptional vineyards were terrible. Lucky for us, the winery sold in 2009 to Le Comte de Colbert, who recruited Arnaud Lambert from nearby Domaine de Saint Just to make the wine. He changed the vineyards over to organic farming and began producing truly stellar wines worthy of their source. The 2012 Château de Brézé Clos David is all estate-grown Chenin Blanc raised in stainless steel to preserve freshness. It has the slightly-oxidized note of a great White Burgundy and a lovely richness that allows it to pair with a variety of foods.

Getting to Know: Jason Marwedel

What’s your position at K&L and how long have you been with the company?

I am a part of the sales staff at the Redwood City store, and also do some customer support on the phone lines.  I started with K&L in December of 2009.

What did you do before K&L?

Upon graduating college, I managed a specialty food and wine store in the San Francisco Ferry Building Marketplace. After four years I wanted to experience the corporate world, so I transitioned to the healthcare industry working for a pharmaceutical consulting firm.  It was a challenging two years, but it helped me reaffirm my passion for the wine industry.  Thankfully, K&L saved me shortly after this realization.

Fizzy, Pink & Fabulous


You're finally coming around.

Twenty years ago, you would have balked at the suggestion of a pink wine to pair with tonight's grilled salmon, roast chicken, or Thai takeout.  Not so anymore. Our sales (and your smiles) are proof: you love rosé wine. You love it, and you're drinking it.
