Dr. Vino’s Tour de France: Wine Edition


$175 per person


With all eyes on the Paris Olympics, we will embark on a vinous journey of France from the friendly confines of the CWC. Guests for this dinner will start the evening with a reception bubbly on the front porch and then move inside for a three-course meal with three pairs of wines. In the glass, we will examine three leading wine regions – the Loire Valley, Burgundy, and the Rhone – with a white and a red from each. Guests will gain an understanding of what makes these regions so exciting today and perhaps with a bit of joie de vivre as well.
