PRESSOIR APÉRO: CÔTE DE NUITS, Tuesday, April 16, 6:00pm-7:30pm

Named after the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges, the Côte de Nuits is the kingdom of Burgundian Pinot Noir. The small size of this subregion of the Côte d’Or is home to some of the most prestigious appellations in the world. With 20 wines carefully curated by the Pressoir team and featuring top producers like Fourrier, Hudelot-Noëllat, Domaine d’Eugenie, and more; this Apéro is the perfect opportunity to discover or revisit Burgundy’s fascinating Côte de Nuits. 


PRESSOIR APÉRO: CÔTE DE BEAUNE, Tuesday, May 14, 6:00pm-7:30pm

While the Côte de Nuits is famous for its amazing red wines, Burgundy lovers find as much beauty in the white wines of the Côte de Beaune as they do in the reds.

For this Apéro, Pressoir invites guests to revisit or discover no fewer than 20 different wines from the Côte de Beaune with a wide range of vintages going back to 2000 and featuring sought-after producers, such as Pierre Morey, Yvon Clerget and Caroline Morey.
