Each four-course dinner showcases four wines as well the culinary artistry at the Beacon Hill Bistro as each course is designed to complement each featured wine. This intimate adventure is set in communal seating to encourage conversation, laughter and fun. For the price of $60.00 per person (tax and gratuity not included), guests are treated to four wines, a full four-course dinner and Cecilia and Tracy’s good cheer, humor and expertise.

The Many Faces of Pinot Noir…

In football, “hang-time” has a very particular meaning. As it does in basketball! In wine-making, “hang time” is the length of time grapes are able to remain on the vine before being picked. Higher altitudes mean longer “hang-times,” which assists in the accumulation of acids, sugars and flavors. For this night, we have selected four wines “with altitude” from very different parts of the world.
Chile – The Conquered becomes the Conqueror!
April 23rd, 2012 7:00PM

Even with all that history, it is only during the last twenty years that the international market has truly been interested in Chilean wines. During this dinner you will find out why Chile is now the fifth largest exporter in the world.
