About the event

Last year, the Best of Bordeaux dinner was one of the most popular events of the year, both because the quality of the wines our members brought to the evening, but because the wines perfectly paired with the food provided by the Washington Duke Inn.  Thanks Boz for orgainzing such a wonderful event.

We listened to the feedback from the membership (those who attended and those who did not) and made some improvements.

- We increased the size of the dinner from 12 to 24

- Any classified growth qualifies for the dinner (preferably a wine with 15 years of age)

- Guests bring an aged Classified Growth Bordeaux (Left or Right Bank) from your cellar.

- The Commanderie will be providing Champagne, Bordeaux Blanc and Sauternes

If you don’t have a cellar and need guidance on how to procure a bottle, please call Ken Place at 919-696-6110. He will help you secure a bottle.

One of the best aspects of the dinner was that we could reserve a room (at a nice discount) to spend the evening at the hotel, so nobody felt pressured to leave or to be careful about consuming alcohol and driving.  This meant Commandeurs could relax and enjoy the evening.  And most of us had brunch the following morning.
