Easter Lunch tasting cocktail - The egg in many different guises !

An Easter celebration where the eggs are not just chocolate!

Easter is a festive time, and a great opportunity to gather together with family and friends to enjoy delicious dishes accompanied by fine wines. The Easter period is now associated with the egg in many different culinary or decorative guises. So join us on this special occasion to discover some of our Burgundy wines, representative of the savoir-faire of Maison Joseph Drouhin, accompanied by an assortment of different ‘bites' of the egg in several ways!

The visit starts with a promenade through our historical cellars dating from the XIIIth and XVth centuries. This will be followed by the commented tasting of a selection of 6 of our emblematic wines of Maison Joseph Drouhin, accompanied by 6 ‘bites' (4 savoury and 2 sweet) concocted by Sarah HIRST, our resident chef. We have created some food and wine pairings that will tantalize your taste buds, some of which will intrigue and surprise you!

Hope to see you very soon at Maison JosephDrouhin !
