"Wine is one of the mysteries that mirrors the depth and inscrutability of Life itself; and as we have been taught by book and fable, it is a gift to be shared, cherished, respected, and most importantly enjoyed."
Such a beautiful sentiment.
Hirsch Vineyards will be having a wine dinner at Upstairs On the Square on March 26. Estate wines from Hirsch Vineyards will be paired with the inventive food of Chef Deborah Hughes at this Harvard Square classic. Jasmine will be on hand to present the wines and answer questions.
Dinner includes four courses with wines to match. Price is $65 per person plus tax and gratuity. I have had their 2006 Hirsch Vineyards Bohan-Dillon Pinot Noir before and it was excellent. I will likely be at this dinner so hope to see you there as well.
To make reservations, please call 617-864-1933.
