Bordeaux and Burgers
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019 | 6:00 - 7:30 pm

Hoping to make 2019 a year of exploration? Start things off right by traveling to the heart of France without splurging on a plane ticket. We’re debuting a new monthly class focused on French wine – the first installment Bordeaux and Burgers on Tuesday, January 15th promises to be a très chic and delicious evening.

Led by Yann Bouey, a French native from the team at Wineberry, the 80-minute class will start with an exploration of the rich culture and history of French wine. Yann’s family have been in the industry for decades (at Maison Bouey), so you can trust he knows his way around a wine list.

The following 40 minutes will be a tasting, during which Yann will introduce the diverse flavors of five Bordeaux Appellation wines: Saint Emilion, Graves, Margaux, Pauillac, and Sauternes – each wine will be paired with a different burger preparation.

Class participants must be 21 years of age of older to attend this event. Please bring a valid ID to the class.
