Nick & Toni’s will host a special wine pairing dinner on
Thursday, March 30 beginning at 6:30 p.m. “France: Tour de Terroir – The Limestone Cowboys” will feature a five course menu crafted by Chef Joseph Realmuto and Pastry Chef Kelsey Roden, paired with French wines chosen by Beverage Director Chimene Macnaughton. The cost is $150 per person, plus tax and gratuity, for the five-course dinner including course-by-course wine pairings. Wines from the menu will be available for pre-order with special event pricing directly through Jacques Franey of Domaine Franey on the night of the event.
“In creating the themes for these monthly tasting experiences, we take our core inspiration indigenous grape varieties the world over. We dedicate half of the series to the over 300 native grapes of Italy, and for the other three themes, I let my most recent blind tastings and the year’s newest vintage releases be my guide. When that means we receive our dinner guests with a dazzling (and bubbly!) Chenin Blanc, then I’m doing something really right!
‘Limestone Cowboys’ is a way of touring some of France’s most prime and prestigious terroir, all in one sitting. We’re covering terrain in Burgundy and the Loire, the Languedoc and the Northern Rhône Valley. It’s a crowd favorite topic I’ve workshopped in years past, and the menu that this ‘Tour de Terroir’ has fueled is sure to spark another truly elevated evening of dining at Nick & Toni’s.
