Every year around the holidays, we always open a bunch of the top champagnes to enjoy. In the past, this has been a formal, seated event with flights of these wines. This year we’re shaking things up a bit and making a more casual drop in event with several of the best champagnes being offered by the half glass and glass throughout the night, no reservations necessary. Full details TBA.

Beauner! A Burgundy Pop Up at Ambonnay – Monday April 9th 5-9pm – I have loved Burgundy even longer than I’ve loved Champagne. I’ve been wanting to pull some corks on delicious Burgs, so I figured why not make an event out of it! This is a drop in event that is louder and more raucous than a normal night at Ambonnay. A bunch Burgundies will be available by the glass and half glass, full menu TBA. No reservations necessary, just drop in from 5-9pm.

I'm teaming up with Manuel from Conserva and Viridian Farms to show off his carving skills with a Cinco Jotas Jamón Ibérico, Spain's premier Jamón. 1 oz along with Picos de Pan will be $20.

In December I hosted a tasting of a variety of Cédric’s champagnes from various years and vineyards. It was a fantastic evening, and inspired me to host another tasting featuring his wines. This time we’ll focus solely on the Val Vilaine vineyard and enjoy very vintage from 2006 through 2015. This should be an amazing journey through Cédric’s time as a wine maker. $95 per person to enjoy 10 wines and discussion about them. Reservations and payment in advance are required. Please contact me for full details.
