The 5th Annual Boulder Burgundy Festival officially happens October 22-25, 2015 in Boulder, Colorado. But Brett Zimmerman, festival founder and Master Sommelier, welcomes two Burgundy heavyweights at a bucket-list level Burgundy wine dinner at Mercantile Dining and Provision (Union Square), Denver on Tuesday October 6th. This dinner is clearly the Denver first-taste of The Boulder Burgundy Festival.
Chef/Owner Alex Seidel has created a mouth-watering 5-course menu suitable for heads of state!
I am pinching myself with disbelief that I am one of the lucky 16 that will be enjoying this feast! Check out the menu below, which is being published for the first time on this blog. Check back next week for a review and photos of the dinner.
