Fall Harvest Dinner - La Paulée de Vignette Cellars

  • Farmhouse at Serenbe

La Paulée is a Burgundian harvest celebration that began during medieval times. The origins trace back to the Cistercian Monks who invited their vineyard pickers to a communal banquet at the end of the grape harvest. This celebration is still continued in Burgundy today. In recognition of the arrival of Vignette Cellars first wines from Burgundy and a bountiful harvest here in Serenbe, we invite you to attend our La Paulée de Vignette Cellars here at The Farmhouse at Serenbe on Sunday Nov 2 at 5pm. This casual affair will begin with tastings of our new Champagne and white wines from Burgundy and Sancerre, followed by a sit down family style dinner at 6:30pm featuring Chef Thaddeus seasonal cuisine and some delicious Pinot Noir selections from Burgundy followed by a dessert course and pairing.

Attendees will enjoy a total seven new Vignette Cellars' wines. The price is $120/person. Please RSVP as soon as possible to reserve your spot in the celebration. Please email your RSVP to rob@vignettecellars.com.

We hope you can join us for what we hope will be an annual event ringing in harvest and the arrival of new wines!
