Prix Fixe Dinner : Five courses – Seven Pourings - $68
Hungary's grape growing and winemaking tradition dates back to antiquity, but when I recently encountered some contemporary Hungarian vintages I was beguiled and intrigued; I tasted ancient vines in the hands of 21st century winemakers.
Eric Danch, of Blue Danube Wines, is the fellow responsible for introducing us to the new Hungarian wine industry. He and I and Paul Marcus Wines invite you to experience some remarkable selections paired with the flavors of the region.

We are very honored that the esteemed Cumberland Club has invited Jean-Michel Morel of KABAJ to pair his wines with a special menu prepared by Chef Dale Horton.
If its historic Federal-style clubhouse is the Club’s heart, her members make up the soul. Active, intelligent and involved, members have long distinguished themselves as the lifeblood of the community they call home. This standard of excellence comes to life in the setting of the Club itself.

Tandem Pairings: Slovenia Rising
Thursday, October 24, 5:00pm
The wines of Kabaj, from northeastern Slovenia, are truly extraordinary and unique. Jean-Michel Morel was born in Bordeaux, but found his calling while making wine in the ancient ways traditional to Georgia. Made from white wine grapes fermented for up to a month on their skins, these are amber-hued wines that take on more of a character of reds: that much intensity, power and drive.
This sometimes controversial practice has surfed a bit of a trend recently, but Morel is a true master, and Wine & Spirits Magazine recently recognized the greatness of Kabaj, naming it one of their Top 100 Wineries of 2013. We are humbled, grateful, and just super excited to host Jean-Michel Morel, who will pour several traditionally fermented wines as well as his internationally coveted Amfora, which is vinified in enormous Georgian kvevri, or clay amphorae, dug into the ground.
Don't miss this unique opportunity to taste some of the most fascinating wines on the planet, alongside a true master of his craft.
