TOUR DE FRANCE SERIES - CHAMPAGNE with John McIlwain

After a very successful first dinner paying tribute to the Loire Valley, we are moving North-East to go visit Champagne for our second stage of Racines' "Tour de France" Dinner Series on Thursday November 1st. For this dinner Champagne lover & expert John McIlwain from Chambers Street Wines put together a fantastic line up of wines exploring the different aspects of the region and style.
Once again Chef Paul Liebrandt will re-invent traditional dishes from the region, to be paired with a wild selection of both classic and off-the-beaten-path wines from our favorite producers.
