Join us as we present an exclusive dinner designed around one of the greatest wineries on the planet, Château Margaux. For centuries, Château Margaux has produced some of the most legendary wines from Bordeaux. In fact, our oenophile founding father, Thomas Jefferson gave the chateau a ringing endorsement in 1787. Guest speaker, Aurelien Valance, will be visiting fron France to speak about the wines and share the story of Château Margaux. We will be pouring vintages sourced directly from the chateau that range back to the 1980s and paired with a menu designed by Chef Michael Gaspard. It will be a wine event not to be missed.
