Georges Remy Champagne Dinner
Thu, Oct 7 at 7pm
We are thrilled to host our first wine dinner in nearly 2 years! On Thursday, October 7, we will explore the Champagnes of Georges Remy and his one still red. Local importer David McCarus will lead us through this amazing lineup.
The story of the Remy family’s history in Champagne began in 1829 after acquiring their first vines in the grand cru village of Bouzy in Montagne de Reims. However, most of the generations preferred working in the vineyards to making their wine, and it was only after George went to oenology school in Bordeaux that he began experimenting with making his own wine: a still red wine to be exact! Finally, esteemed Champagne peers like the Bereche brothers convinced him to make his own sparkling. George’s experience with still wines really shines in his sparkling wines. They have what wine nerds call a very “vinous” character. In other words, there’s way more to them than just bubbles.
Chef Bob Cook and Pastry Chef Heather Hutton will prepare a four course “family style” dinner to compliment the wines. The dinner will start at 7 p.m. and will be held in “The Library”, the private dining room at Edmund’s Oast. Tickets are $150, all inclusive. We are limiting seating to 20 guests, and we ask that all guests be fully vaccinated.
We are featuring the following wines and will have limited quantities of each for sale at the dinner:
