Burgundy

  • May 17, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Ragav will be hosting a tasting at his place in May. We are going to do both white and red burgundy with white tasting taking place during appetizers and red tasting with dinner.

He is asking for guests to bring a $30 to $35 bottle of burgundy, you pick red or white. He is making main course for dinner but would like guests to bring either an appetizer or side dish to share. If you RSVP yes and are on the guest list, please comment with what you plan to bring in terms of food and if you will bring red or white. That way people can get an idea of what might fit well with what others are bringing.

Please also bring 4 wine glasses for tasting.

Should be fun! Comment with questions. See you in May.

    Thanks for hosting a great event Ragav! I love the idea of a Peidmont pairing :)

    Thanks so much Ragav! Lovely event and a beautiful home.
    I think a structured peidmont and dinner pairing would be awesome!

    Thanks again for everything last night, Ragav-- that was excellent. Piedmont! Yes! Just remember, Nebbiolo doesn't wash out of your shirt like Pinot Noir does.

    Excellent evening last night. I'm wondering if a more structured dinner and pairing with Piedmont might be on the horizon....

    looks like I'll be stuck in NYC for the evening.. Bummed to miss this one. Ragav, have fun and hope to see you a the June tasting!

    May 16, 2013

  • Ragav

    As of now, here is what we have....

    Cheese/Crackers = 2 people
    Cheese/Bread = 2 people
    Pate/Bread = 1 person
    Apps = 2 people
    Dessert = 3 people
    Salad = 2 person

    Total of 11 people. Can some folks please bring some olives/anti pasti type stuff? Perhaps some Salami? We might need some blue cheese to go with the Port (yum). Other than that, I'm getting the pork and chicken later today. See you all tomorrow!

      I can cover olives. Was thinking about bringing a salmon spread as well.

      1 · May 16, 2013

    • Suzanne

      I will be bring a bottle of red and an app - prosciutto and mozzarella. See you tomorrow!

      May 16, 2013

  • Laura

    Apologize if already sent but the address is? Thx.

    May 16, 2013

    • Ragav

      I just posted it

      May 16, 2013

  • Eric

    Deja vu? Normally the address email has gone out by now. I didn't get one. Ragav: you don't want this to end up like Thomas B's. Since Roy didn't make you the event host, you won't be able to email the list yourself. You might try pinging Roy earlier than later. If it's still quiet tomorrow, you could email the address to each of us individually through the site ( a pain I know), but it's better than a non-party.

    1 · May 16, 2013

  • Crista

    Ok. Instead of goat cheese and crackers, I will bring an antipasti thing.

    1 · May 16, 2013

  • Michael

    I'm technically asssigned dessert, though it looks like a number of others are planning to bring sweets. I'll bring Stilton to accompany the port. That's MY idea of dessert, anyway!

    2 · May 16, 2013

  • Karen

    Sorry for the late reply, I'll be bringing a red (because that's what I have and I won't have time to get to a wine shop), and a veg heavy app/side dish.

    1 · May 16, 2013

  • Thomas B

    I'm going to bring "Provençal Wheat Berry Salad with Shrimp and Mustard-Caper Vinaigrette"

    Seems there is confusion on placement on the list. How about folks look at what has been posted and then make a decision accordingly?

  • Ragav

    I may be increasing the amount of folks. This may be a tasting, but I suspect its just going to go from a Burgundy tasting to a party, just so you know. The wine fridges will be open at some point and the music will be on. I'm working on a menu and will send out suggestions for sides and appetizers

    1 · April 10, 2013

    • Pamela

      I don't work Fridays so I'm happy to come anytime fri -sat to help set up!
