Le Grande Tent Terrace – Very Limited Exclusive Seating

Chef Jacques asks, “Do they make wine in Italy?” Indeed they do, and some of the finest in the world, too (at least outside of France). SoLCF Goes Italian Wine Dinner please join us Thursday, August 5th, at 6:00pm for a delectable tasting and scrumptious dinner experience featuring wines from two of Italy’s most celebrated wine regions, Tuscany and the Piedmont.

Our sommelier, Alex Bardsley, will lead a pre-dinner tasting, which will consist of two flights of two wines each. The first flight will include a Barbaresco and a Barolo, and the second flight will showcase two Brunello di Montalcino. Dinner will be accompanied by two more wines, one from each region. Chef Jacques and team will offer a feast evoking two of the most beautiful regions in Europe (once again, outside of France!)

Our very special wine dinner is offered on our covered garden terrace 40ft x 55ft tent, complete with plenty of room for generous distancing, six cooling fans, cafe bistro lighting and pastoral views of our 6 acres, two on-site gardens, koi pond and blooming flowers.

Our “Grande Tente” will be the perfect place for a relaxing Chef’s Jacques’ delectable six course Italian-themed repast, exquisite wines from two of Italy’s best regions.  Always good fun between the French and Italians as L’Auberge Chez Francois “Goes Italian”!  See you there-reminder to sign up early, as seating is very limited.
