After two years of waiting, our wine dinners are back! We are excited to celebrate Lolita's second birthday with a very special event - a five course Burgundy dinner featuring incredible wines, including several premier crus, paired with dishes that highlight and complement their elegance and distinctive terroir. We'll even be back in our old home at 100 Congress Street, which we're using as an event space for the evening. It's déjà vu of the best kind. |
People have been making wine in Burgundy since the dawn of time. (Well, more accurately since about the first century...) Romans, Valois Dukes, Benedictine and Cistercian monks, among the many. From Chablis in the cooler north to the Mâconnais and Beaujolais in the south, Burgundian winemakers produce wines of great finesse and beauty - beguiling wines that are highly sought after.
We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate two years of Lolita than by bringing in some of these beautiful wines to share with you. We'll make one exception we don't think anyone will argue with, by starting with some phenomenal Champagne from Pol Roger, a Grand Marque Champagne house that has been family-owned and operated since 1849.
Once we're ready for dinner, we'll feature both village and premier cru wines from two prominent producers: Domaine Christian Moreau Père et Fils, a winemaking family that has lived in Chablis since 1814, and Domaine Faiveley, a premier producer with 12 hectares of grand cru and 27 hectares of premier cru vineyard holdings.

Oops. That's actually six wines in all. We won't tell if you don't.
Join us as we welcome our special guest, Brett Marcy, from Frederick Wildman & Sons, the importer responsible for bringing these and other wonderful wines to us in the United States since 1934.
And to make things easy and simple, we've made the evening all inclusive. $150 per person includes dinner, wine, service/gratuity, and tax. (Brown Paper tickets has a separate ticket fee of $6.24.)
We look forward to hosting these very special dinners again, and hope you can join us.
- Guy, Stella, and Neil.
