Wine Stains 4/25/11: Highs + Lows with Mr. Hill

Please join Seth Hill of Alchemy Wine and the staff of Journeyman on Monday April 25 at our second installment of Wine Stains, a monthly wine dinner where the drinks get all the attention. Seating, at communal tables, is available at 6:00, 7:00, and 8:00pm.

This time, we’ve paired the pairings; each course will be served alongside at least two drinks! We’ll start with a flight of some our favorite vermouth-style aperitifs, compare two Belgian-style sour beers, challenge the norm with a red wine that drinks like a white + a white wine that acts like a red, then compare two wildly different Cabernet Francs, and end with two of our favorite sparkling wines for spring.

$85 for 4 courses with multiple beverages paired with each course.
