Take a fun and fantastic culinary wine tour around the world with the Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro’s Wine & Dine Mondays series. Diners are invited to visit various wine regions without leaving the comfort of their seats, as Cecilia and Tracy Burgis of M.S. Walker act as virtual tour guides, moving from region to region and explaining the history, curiosities, nuances of each selection.
Each of this season’s three dinners, titled “Hate School, But Love Class?,” “Expensive Taste,” and “Heading Toward Winter Wonderland: Snowy Wines and Warm Foods,” will be held on a Monday evening throughout the fall.While “voyaging” the globe, the series is not simply about the wine. It is also about the wonderful food. Each four-course dinner showcases four wines as well the culinary talents of our team, led by Chef Josh Lewin, whose menu is designed to best compliment each featured wine and region.
The experience is set in communal seating to encourage conversation, laughter and fun. For the price of $65.00 per person (tax and gratuity not included), guests are treated to the four wines, the full four-course dinner and Cecilia’s and Tracy’s good cheer, humor and expertise. Reservations are encouraged as most nights sell out well in advance.
