Portland Wine Week Dinner:  Burgundy North to South

Wednesday |June 20, 2018 |6:30 pm

People have been making wine in Burgundy since the dawn of time. (Well, more accurately since about the first century…) Romans, Valois Dukes, Benedictine and Cistercian monks, to name just a few. From Chablis in the cooler north to the Mâconnais and Beaujolais in the south, Burgundian winemakers produce wines of great finesse and beauty – beguiling wines that are highly sought after.

We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Portland’s inaugural Wine Week than by bringing in some of these beautiful wines to share with you.

We’ll feature both village and premier cru wines from two prominent producers: Domaine Billaud-Simon, a presence in Chablis since 1815, and Domaine Faiveley, a premier producer dating back to 1825, with 12 hectares of grand cru and 27 hectares of premier cru vineyard holdings. And, we’ll feature wines from the north to the south of Burgundy to highlight the diversity of the terroir.

Billaud-Simon Chablis 1er Cru Les Vaillons
Domaine Faiveley Mercurey Clos Rochette (monopole)
Domaine Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin
Domaine Faiveley Beaune 1er Cru Clos de l’Ecu

Join us as we welcome our special guest, Brett Marcy, from Frederick Wildman & Sons, the importer responsible for bringing these and other wonderful wines to us in the United States since 1934.

And to make things easy and simple, we’ve made the evening all inclusive. $125 per person includes dinner, wine, service/gratuity, and tax. (Brown Paper tickets has a separate ticket fee of $5.37.)

We look forward to hosting this very special dinner, and hope you can join us.
