Please join us Thursday, October 21st, as Chef Jacques welcomes Antoine Collet, French Specialist from Kobrand Corporation, to present a vinous “Tour de France” Six-Course Wine Dinner, featuring selections from their unmatched portfolio. For over 75 years, Kobrand has been a leading importer of classic French wines into the United States, and we are thrilled to be “touring” and tasting some of the world best wines from our mother country – France!
Our Tour de France Dinner will be held in our lovely and graciously distanced Garden Room this evening, overlooking our grounds and gardens. After a reception of Brut from the Loire, your French Dinner Experience begins with two of France’s best white wines – the extraordinarily rare Bouzeron from Burgundy, and a Grand Cru Pinot Gris from Alsace’s most acclaimed producer. For the main course, compare two of France’s favorite reds – a Premier Cru Burgundy (the pinnacle of Pinot Noir), and Chateauneuf du Pape, the savory, complex red of the Southern Rhone. Finish our French Tour with a delectable Dessert from Chef Pascal, served with incomparable “Nocturne” from Champagne Taittinger. Bon appetit and see you there. No need for your passports!
