WHAT: This autumn, guests are invited to take a culinary wine tour during the return of Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro’s Wine & Dine Mondays series. Designed to both educate and entertain, this season’s series offers a playful spin on the industry’s typical wine dinner.
“Wine & Dine Mondays is about wonderful wines, creative food and good friends,” said Cecilia Rait, proprietress and wine director of Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro. “This year we went a little more playful and decided to mix things up a bit by offering fun, out-of-the-box themes.”
Each of this season’s three dinners, titled “Hate School, But Love Class?,” “Expensive Taste,” and “Heading Toward Winter Wonderland: Snowy Wines and Warm Foods,” will be held on a Monday evening throughout the fall. Diners are invited to visit various wine regions without leaving the comfort of their seats as Cecilia and Tracy Burgis of M.S. Walker act as virtual tour guides, moving from wine to wine, explaining the history, curiosities and nuances of each selection.
The series is not simply about the wine. It is also about the wonderful food. Each four-course dinner showcases four wines as well the culinary artistry of Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro’s Executive Chef Josh Lewin, whose dishes are designed to complement each course’s wine. This intimate adventure is set in communal seating to encourage conversation, laughter and fun. For $65.00 per person (tax and gratuity not included), guests are treated to four wines, a full four-course dinner and Cecilia’s and Tracy’s good cheer, humor and expertise. Reservations are encouraged as most nights sell out well in advance.
WHEN: Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro’s Wine & Dine Mondays Series is held at 7:00PM on Monday, October 21st, 28th and November 18th, 2013. (Schedule Below.)
