Presidential Wine Cellar

What have our presidents been drinking?


« Prev Next » 7 of 8
Bill Clinton

So we should probably define state affairs before asking what wines Bill Clinton was serving. I can hear it already, “I did not imbibe!” Well the Internet says otherwise Mr. President!

In fact, a quick scan of some of the official White House dinner menus shows that some kick ass wines were on offer.

1991 Ridge Monte Bello
1997 Macari Chardonnay ( Go NY!)
1995 Horton Nebbiolo (Go Va!)

Nice going Clinton White House!

    Ben Franklin was not, of course, a president.

    I've heard Mac McDonald of Vision Cellars tell the story of how his Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir was requested by the White House (pretty sure it would have to be the Bush presidency). Mac had a limited # of cases and would only sell them 2 despite their request for the whole vintage. He also said that Prince Charles drank this wine every night during his stay.

    Sorry, Mac, if I got any details wrong. PS, I love this wine too!

    Of course Ben Franklin was not a President, though his time in France certainly had an impact on what the Presidents were stocking and drinking.

    Was wonder why Ben was on the list as he was a founding father and not President. He most likely enjoyed wine while in France as an ambassador. I read somewhere he invented the armonica from wine glasses.
