Tonight is the Night

This is Philadelphia Wine Week and I will be hosting a Rhône variety wine dinner at Fare Restaurant in the Fairmount section of the city tonight. We are still finalizing the menu a bit, but the wines are set:

2013 Château Beauchêne Côtes du Rhône Blanc Grande Réserve (France)
2014 Enazo Garnacha Rose (Navarra, Spain)
2011 Château Beauchêne Côtes du Rhône Rouge “Premier Terroir” (France)
2009 Chono Syrah (Elqui Valley, Chile)
2011 Purple Star Syrah (Washington)IMG_3627

The idea is to explore the main grapes from the Rhône from various places and how well they pair with food, while learning about the specific wines and regions.IMG_3628

What: The second monthly wine focused five course dinner, with this month’s theme, Rhône Varieties, with wine education provided by the Drunken Cyclist.

Cost: $75 all inclusive (includes wine, gratuity, and tax).

Where: Fare Restaurant 2028 Fairmount Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19130,  (267) 639-3063

When: Tuesday, March 24th, 7:00 Sharp

Reservations: Call Andrew (267) 639-3063 or drop me an email (jeff(at)thedrunkencyclist(dot)com)IMG_3630

So if you are in Philadelphia tonight and would like to come by for a great meal and interesting discussion, give the restaurant a call and I will see you there!


About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.
