Légende Wine Lunch @ Mirabelle

*Sponsored Post
Légende Wines are from Château Lafite Rothschild in Bordeaux, France - a Taub Family Wine Selections brand. For five generations, the Rothschild family has been associated with the vineyards of Bordeaux since 1868. In addition to the wines produced from their prestigious vineyards, the Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) have for many years created a range of more accessible wines for everyday drinking. I was invited to a lunch at Mirabelle with winemaker Diane Flamand, who explained the history and variations offered by the Lafite label.

San Lorenzo

San Lorenzo is Chef Massimo Fabbri's most personal and passionate endeavor yet, paying homage to his family and hometown of Monsummano Terme in the Tuscan region of Italy.  The menu features simple but perfect preparation of fine, fresh ingredients from the Tuscan region; the classic dishes with which Chef Fabbri grew up.  Named after Massimo's son, who in turn is named for San (or Saint) Lorenzo, the patron saint of chefs, this Italian restaurant is a fine addition to the Shaw neighborhood.  Closest Metro is Convention Center.
