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.
