A Night in Southern France Dinner Class | BWS at The Middle Gray

  • The Middle Gray 6 Station Street Brookline, MA, 02445 United States

Join us for a fun food & wine tour of Mediterranean France, all within the four walls of the Boston Wine School! We know this region intimately, and the cooking demos and wine pairings in class will give exciting new insight into the wine & food traditions from this part of the world. So many dishes, so many wines!

This class - limited to 14 students - will taste six major wine + food combinations together that express the full range of how these foods and wines match up: by style, by texture, by flavor, geography, even temperament. You'll be able to find your favorite wine towns on the map when this class gets done with you!

MENU (tentative)

Please understand the food and wine menu are subject to change based on availability, chef creativity, teacher whimsy, and more!

Sparkling wine with olives, saucissons, crudites, tapenade

Picpoul de Pinet with brandade de morue with croutes

Tavel with root vegetables stuffed and gratineed, with a little sauce

Cotes du Rhone Cairanne with meat stew with tomatoes & fennel

This tasting assumes some exposure to wine but little formal wine knowledge. This program is appropriate for both consumers and professionals in all bar, food, hospitality and service industries.


At the Boston Wine School, we are a 100% Wine Snob Free Zone. We believe that learning about wine involves learning about yourself, and we promise to challenge all our students to do that. Our goal is to help you understand deeply and communicate completely what you are experiencing when you are enjoying a glass of wine or a morsel of food.


Guests, students and certificate candidates must meet the legal minimum age for the retail purchase of alcoholic beverages in the country where the program is being held: 21 in the USA and 18 in China.
