Clash of the Titans – Burgundy v. Bordeaux


One night only you can experience the CLASH OF THE TITANS. That’s right … Burgundy AND Bordeaux! Both big deals and undefeated in their own worlds – that’s right ladies and gentlemen, with these two titans at the table, it’ll be a CAGE MATCH OF A MEAL!

Kicked off with a Champagne (cuz that’s how we roll!), we’ll crash into some fish with the traditional grapes of each region, Chardonnay and Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc. Then… just when you start breathing again you’ll have to stare down two reds from the massively historic Burgundy and Bordeaux regions, one of them produced by France’s first ever female winemaker of the year – you’ll get nuance and sophistication versus plain old earthiness and power – BOOM!

And we have just the chef to take on this challenge – Kevin Costa of Crested Duck.

Seriously – should be a nice dinner – hope you can join us (sorry for all the yelling).
