In honor of Bastille Day, Bar Boulud celebrates with a special four-course wine dinner, featuring traditional Provençal cuisine along with all things rosé from Château d’Esclans.

Located fifteen miles northwest of the Mediterranean coast, in the sun-drenched landscape of Provence, Château d’Esclans is renowned for their mature Grenache vines, which produce grapes that offer a greater concentration of flavor, creating the palate-grabbing collection of rosé, for which the château is known.

On July 14, 2018, join Sommelier David Bérubé and special guest Alex Diard, Wine Ambassador for Château d’Esclans, who will pour pink and educate guests on some of the “finest rosé you will ever find,” according to Jonathan Ray, Drinks Editor of The Spectactor.

Terra Wine Dinner: Behind Natural & Biodynamic Wines
Mar 10 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Beverage Director Gregg Guertin takes you back in time to the way wine used to be.

During the next Terra Wine Dinner, Eataly’s Beverage Director Gregg Guertin takes us back in time to the way wine used to be—before the addition of pesticides, chemicals, and additives to today’s agriculture.  Each wine pairing during this multi-course dinner will be an expressive, unique, and raw example of grapes in their truest form so that you may taste distinctive characteristics of the grape varietals while appreciating terroir and the growers’ techniques. Along with natural wines, you’ll enjoy biodynamic wines—bottles which are made with a holistic view on agriculture and balance the resonance between vine, man, earth, and stars.

Just like the wine, the five courses prepared by Terra’s Executive Chef Dan Bazzinotti will also draw from primitive roots of cooking and ingredients while showcasing Terra’s wood-fired grill as the main attraction. These dishes will utilize meats from local farms using organic and sustainable methods; wild and sustainable Massachusetts seafood; and local, organic, and foraged fruits and vegetables showcased in their true form to create the perfect pairing with each wine.

During the dinner, you will have the opportunity to learn about the ingredients and stories behind our wines and food directly from our experts. Chef Dan will take you on a journey through all the dinner’s ingredients including the Frantoi Cutrera Primo organic olive oil from Sicily used in the preparation of local seafood; the Country Hen eggs that give our housemade pasta its bright, yellow color; the local, humane, non-GMO meat raised at Chickering Farm in Westmoreland, NH; and our fresh produce from local farms, foragers, and purveyors who strive to keep the quality intact.

Book your seat for another installment of a Terra Wine Dinner under the stars. Stay tuned for the full menu!

At this dinner, you will:

  • Indulge in five courses featuring local, organic, sustainable ingredients cooked over the Terra fire
  • Enjoy natural & biodymanic wine pairings with each course and learn about the distinctive characteristics of grape varietals
  • Meet and chat with Executive Chef Dan Bazzinotti and Beverage Director Gregg Guertin about the stories behind each ingredient and wine pairing
  • Experience the magical ambiance of Eataly’s rooftop restaurant, Terra

The Valtellina is an Alpine valley in Northern Lombardy, just below the border with Switzerland, that was carved out by the mighty river Adda.  The valley lies in between the Rhaetian Alps to the north and the Bergamo Alps to the south.

Nino Negri, located in this very valley, was established in 1897 is one of Italy’s most celebrated producers in the Valtellina.  The winery operates to this day in a centuries old castle, and uses the original cellars with natural underground temperature control to age their wines.

Each wine will be perfectly paired to savory courses like Pizzoccheri alla Valtellinese, a traditional Alpine pasta dish. You will dive into flame-kissed flavors of the seasonal ingredients prepared over Terra’s famous wood-fire grill as you discover the stories and history behind the dishes and wine.
