We’re thrilled to announce that Bordeaux Wines’ will be the official wine sponsor of the inaugural Harlem Eatup! Festival. The four day event, founded by Celebrity Chef Marcus Samuelsson and veteran event producer, Herb Karlitz and supported by Harlem ambassadors like President Bill Clinton, will celebrate the food, culture and spirit of the historic neighborhood of Harlem. While Harlem and Bordeaux are thousands of miles apart, they both represent a rich and dynamic history that is reflected in the food, wine, culture and arts you see today.
As part of our involvement in the event, we will provided distinct wine pairings for the festival’s Dine In Harlem events – a one-night only dining experience at select local Harlem Restaurants including The Cecil, Ginny’s Supper Club, Dinosaur BBQ and Jin Ramen. Celebrated Chefs from across the country including Jonathan Waxman (Barbuto), Sean Brock (Husk), Paul Qui (Qui) and Ludo Lefebvre (Trois Mec) will collaborate with participating Harlem area restaurants on a menu for a one night residency. Each course will be expertly paired with a delicious and affordable red, white and / or sweet Bordeaux wine that will reflect the versatility and accessibility of our wines with the wide range of cuisines represented at Dine In Harlem.
Additionally, you’ll find us at the weekend’s Grand Tasting in beautiful Morningside Park where food vendors from across the neighborhood will offer their unique fare alongside music and dance performances and art exhibitions from local artists. Attendees will have the opportunity to pair the diverse cuisine of the area with unexpected wine pairings from our region.
