Thursday, August 22nd, 6:30

We are excited to announce the first of an

on-going series of wine dinners! 

Hugues Beaulieu, long-time wine director at the Inn at Little Washington and now Virginia Sales Manager for Elitewines, one of the top wine importers and distributors in the country, will be presenting a selection of wines designed to showcase New World and Old World wines. Each course will feature a wine from both areas, and Hugues will discuss the differences between the two and what makes each unique.

Executive Chef Joe Wolfson has designed a menu perfectly paired with each wine. Courses will demonstrate both "old-world" and "new-world" interpretations of similar dishes. There will be two presentations for each course, allowing you to experience classically inspired dishes alongside a more modern, "new-world" take on the dish. Chef Joe and Hugues have worked together to develop the evening's menu to beautifully compliment each of the wines presented.

This is a wonderful opportunity to grow and further your knowledge of wine and what it is involved in making two different representations of the same varietal. Both Chef Joe and Hugues will welcome questions about interpretations on both winemaking and culinary development. 

We look forward to making this a very intimate experience and as such are limiting reservations to just 40 guests. You are encouraged to book early. This is truly an opportunity not to be missed!

$125 per person, including wine pairings.

There will be an opportunity to buy wines directly at the finish of the evening.
