Bep is harvesting new vintage in Burgundy!

End of September- beginning of October it is the period called les vendanges in France -Wine harvest. This year our Sous Chef Marc Arthur Baralla went back home in Bourgogne- Burgundy- home of the Pinot Noir. That region is mainly known for the delicate taste of the Pinot Noir like Romanee Conti, Gevrey Chambertin, Chambolle Musigny ( vineyards I used to harvest when I was teenager). However Marc went back to his roots in the terroir he grew up of Chassagne Montrachet and Massagne/Santenay. He harvested in some exquisite Organic and Biodynamic vineyards. Following his advices, we will serve soon some Biodynamic and Organic wines.

Bonnes Vendanges a tous!
