Join Seven Lamps for Bodegas Carrau of Uruguay Wine Dinner May 1

The winemaking heritage of the Carrau family can be traced back to Catalonia, Spain (circa 1752), and in 1930, they carried it across the Atlantic to Uruguay. When your winemaking experience spans 10 generations and two continents, you know a thing or two about wine. No wonder Bodegas Carrau is one of Uruguay's leading wine exporters. Seven Lamps in the Shops around Lenox welcomes winemaker Francisco Carrau (who carries a PhD in chemistry and is a professor of oenology at the Universidad de la Republica de Uruguay) for the Bodegas Carrau wine dinner on Wednesday, May 1 at 7 p.m. The four-course dinner and wine pairing from Executive Chef Drew Van Leuvan features smoked Bramlett trout with spring peas, almond, mint and goat's milk; caramelized globe artichokes, dried artichokes, curried hazelnuts and shiso; slow-roasted beef flatiron with roasted carrots and shallot confit with red wine bacon jus; and don't forget about dessert. Wines include Sust Vintage 2009, Sauvignon Blanc Sur Lie 2012, Chardonnay de Reserva and Amato 2007. The cost is $75 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Tickets are required and seating is limited. Call 404-467-8950 to purchase a ticket.
