Wine Dinner #54: Another Side of Burgundy

Saturday, November 8th, 2014, from 5:45 P.M.
Our milestone Wine Dinner #50 in 2012 featured a gala taste treat of Bordeaux.  So,
it ‘s only fitting to be kicking off our 20th Anniversary Season with a rare fascinating 
look at some other of the most beloved and popular wines in France, namely,
the luxurious, sensuous Grand Cru bottlings of Burgundian Beaujolais. And, while
the price of most French burgundies today has soared well beyond the reach of many
of us, the good news is that these high-end Beaujolais vintages are still comparatively
affordable gems of Burgundian pedigree. Hoping you will join us for this 20th landmark
season special, and thanks for your many many years of loyal and generous interest.
5:45 Kickoff reception with aperitifs, abundant hors d’oeuvres, French melodies
 6:45 Tasting adventure of artisan Beaujolais and indigenous Burgundian styles 
 7:45 Hearty four-course Burgundy banquet with additional special wine pairing

A Brief History of Cambridge Boat Club

Cambridge Boat Club was founded by civic minded Cantabrigians who gathered to create a common resource for athletics and socializing. The club was incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on April 7th, 1909. Its declared purpose was to "encourage athletic exercises, boating and yachting and to establish and maintain a place for social meetings".

This is the era when people began to formally take notice of the importance of individuals and groups to marshall their forces, in stewardship of the nation's open spaces and recreational lands. It is the time of Teddy Roosevelt's Presidency, the establishment of many of our great national parks and the environmental movement so capably espoused by the impassioned photography of Walter Muir. Mount Auburn Cemetery and Frederick Law Olmsted's Emerald Necklace are still in their infancy.
