We are super-thrilled to be able to invite you to an intimate dinner with Daniel Brunier, proprietor and head winemaker of Vieux Télégraphe. Vieux Télégraphe is one of the best wines in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, from one of its supreme sites and made by some of its greatest talents, and this promises to be a wonderful and exceptionally rare opportunity.
When: Tuesday, October 24th, 8pm
Where: Blue Ribbon Federal Grille, 84 William Street, New York
Price: $190 (including food, wine, tax and tip)
Sold Out For Now…
We are exploring options to offer more seats. To put your name on the waiting list please:
Daniel is a gentleman and scholar who has been working the high, wind-swept vineyards of his family’s domaine since the early ’80s. It sounds cliché, but Daniel has such charm and elegance that the term “gentleman” is most appropriate. And his deep knowledge of the geology and history of both his own domaine and the entire region is truly scholarly.
This will be a rare opportunity to taste back-vintage Châteauneuf with a winemaking legend. The wines will be served with a perfectly-paired four-course meal, next Tuesday, October 24th, at Blue Ribbon Federal Grille, the newest outpost of one of New York’s classic restaurants. The event will start at 8pm.
If you’re reading this blog, you almost certainly know how honest and straight-up delicious Blue Ribbon’s food is. But, if you’re anything like me, seeing the special menu they’ve planned for this event will remind you of why their restaurants have been NYC favorites for over two decades.
Tickets are $190, all in. This is an outstanding value. The library wines are direct from Blue Ribbon’s Cellar. They are sure to be in top condition.
Seating is limited and we expect the event to sell out quickly, so please don’t hesitate to email me to grab your seats.
Hope to see you there
