Terra Wine Dinner Series: From Barbera to Barolo! Dinner with Francesca Vajra of G.D. Vajra
Apr 5 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Terra Wine Dinner

Francesca Vajra is one of the owner-winemakers for G.D. Vajra in Barolo and will be joining us at Terra to host a very special wine dinner. Francesca’s depth of knowledge and charm will offer compelling insight into this small but renowned producer in Piemonte known for making both adventurous and traditional wines.

With a matured ripening comes an innate elegance and intensity. The soil breeds the wines to be rich and fragrant. The climate lends to smaller batches, where the quality is palpable. As exemplified at the winery: “We believe in beauty, craftsmanship, attention to detail and creativity with respect for tradition” — and it shows!

Together with G.D. Vajra Wines, guests will embark on an exploration of this beloved winery — from Barbera to Barolo and beyond — alongside a delicious authentic menu from our very own Chef Dan Bazzinotti.

The Art of Pairing at Bauer Wine and Spirits
Apr 28 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Join Bauer Wine and Spirits for the Art of Pairing

On Saturday, April 28, Bauer Wine and Spirits will be hosting the Art of Pairing from 4:30-6:30 P.M.

 Art is all around us, it just depends on what inspires you. What makes your mouth water on a cold bomb cyclone day in Boston might not be appealing at all on a hot July Sunday on the Cape. Just as weather impacts your appreciation of a meal, your choice of beverage can take a meal from good to great, or even from great to extraordinary. The Art of Pairing is an educational piece where you can learn the key to a successful meal–the passport for a beautiful harmonious marriage between food and drink. We will be serving Tenure Peach Fizz with smokey pulled pork sliders, Garden Punch- a Rosemary Rhubarb Lemonade, with cornbread, and a Coldbrew martini served with Pecan Pie!
