The Brook Tavern is having a Burgundy wine dinner next Wednesday (May 20) at 7pm. The cost is $65/pp, tax and gratuity additional.
Hosted by the ever-so-talented Joe Armstrong, anyone who attends this dinner will without a doubt walk away knowing more about this wine than they did before, even if they think they’re an expert!
The wines they’ll be featuring? Côte Chalonnaise Reds, of course. These Burgundy wines have been making quite the headlines, including two separate articles by the New York Times recently which you can find below:
