Bordeaux Tasting Event

For Fall 2020, a Bordeaux tasting event will be open to the Las Cruces community, but with current state regulations, limited to 20 guests each. Guests holding reservations from the postponed Spring 2020 events will have first priority for reservations.

WHEN: Thursday, November 12
TIME: 5:30 pm
WHERE: 100 West Café.
COST: $30 per person

It will include an educational presentation about Bordeaux, tasting of 7 wines, and select cheeses and appetizers.

Dining will look a bit different with expanded table spacing and servers wearing face masks and face shields. The maximum group size for a reservation is 4 people. As our seating will be tables of four, parties of two will be placed together.

For reservations, please contact Jacqueline Talavera, 646-7324.
