After working with Bistro Barbès for a number of winemaker dinners over the last year, we can confidently state that they’re doing consistently assured, imaginative work designing menus rooted in classic French cuisine around a wide variety of wine styles from around the world.

Our debut dinner will feature two iconoclastic, versatile white wines from Tuscany and Spain, plus our favorite new SBC Pinot Noir and a library release of Côtes-du-Rhône from Lirac legend Rodolphe de Pins at Château de Montfaucon. And that’s before dessert, paired with wonderful Madeira.
