Presidential Wine Dinner at Bedell Cellars
March 25 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
This March marks the ten-year anniversary of the 2013 Inaugural Luncheon, where Bedell Cellars’ 2009 Merlot was the first New York wine to be served at a Presidential Inauguration. To celebrate the momentous occasion, Winemaker Rich Olsen-Harbich is teaming up with Fyr and Salt (www.instagram.com/fyrandsalt/) to host a Presidential Wine Dinner on Saturday, March 25 at 6pm.
The three-course menu will feature dishes from the 2013 Inaugural Luncheon, and each course will be paired with a vintage Bedell Cellars wine, including the 2009 Merlot which has not been poured since that day.
The pairings will be inspired by wines enjoyed by past presidents and the 2009 Merlot will be available for guests to purchase. Cost is $285 and there are only ten seats available.
