Aura & Bonny Doon Vineyards

Aura Restaurant welcomes Santa Cruz’s Bonny Doon Vineyards for a special wine dinner with guest of honor, winery founder and self-proclaimed “vitizen of the world,” Randall Graham. If having the opportunity to experience Randall’s rants on “ugly duckling grape varietals” isn’t reason enough to reserve your tickets today, than perhaps Chef Rachel Klein’s spirited 3-course pairing menu will be:

First Course:
Georges Bank Scallop
with Gnocchi, baby fennel, Coulommier cream and apple
Paired with the 2006 Cigare Volant Blanc

Second Course:
Moulard Duck Breast with Star anise, black garlic and Chinese shiitake mushrooms
Paired with the 2003 Cigare Volant

Apricot Crumble
with Greven Broeker, marcona almond and honey-yoghurt sorbet
Paired with the Le Vol des Anges

The wine dinner will be held on Friday, January 23. There will be a Reception at 6:30 PM and Dinner at 7:30 PM. The dinner costs $85 per person (includes tax and gratuity).

Reservations are Recommended. Please call 617-385-4300.
