Big Macs & Burgundy: Unusual Pairings for Exceptional Wines

Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site, Burgundy’s Climats, or terroirs, are world renowned. Lesser known is that these prestigious wines are also incredibly versatile, beautifully complementing delicate and bold flavors alike. Vanessa Price, co-author of Big Macs & Burgundy, will examine the bolder side of the spectrum during this illuminating evening of surprising and indulgent pairings.

Nicole Muscari, wine advisor from Vivant, will present the evening’s selection of six wines, provided in 100 ml tubes, focusing on hidden treasures from south Burgundy. This region, where the Saône river winds through the Côte Chalonnaise and the Maconnais, a lesser-known subregion, welcomes you with unexpected high-quality wines. Home to enticing Pinot Noir and citrusy Chardonnay, southern Burgundy has its own distinct vibe. The evening will be moderated by Yannick Benjamin, co-founder of Wheeling Forward and Head Sommelier of The University Club.
