Chaine des Rotisseurs Promotion

BRIEFS - nFocus, March 2009

Tom loves wine and wine loves Tom. That`s pretty clear now that Tom Black has, in essence, been knighted by the gods of the wine world, the Chaine des Rotisseurs, the world`s oldest and most prestigious food and wine society. Tom was named to the rank of Vice Conseiller Gastronomique Bailliage des Etas-Unis. Cool.

The guild is a non-for-profit society officially founded in Paris in 1950, with written history which has been traced back to the year 1248. At that time, French King Louis IX assigned the task of bringing order into the organization of gastronomic traders, developing young apprentices and improving the technical knowledge of its members. Today, this storied French royal guild of food and wine afficionados continues in its efforts to educate and unite those who love the good life.

If that weren't enough, Tom is also an officer of the Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne, an organization established in 1656 by King Louis the XIV (these French kings named Louis sure do like their wine!) to manage global communications for the wine of Champagne, France.

So know this. If you`re going to dinner at Tom`s and you want to take a gift, box wine probably won`t go over that well.
