39 Rue de Jean is excited to announce a 4 course dinner with Rioja wine pairings taking place on Monday, November 27, 2017 at 6pm. Inigo Echavarri, Export Director of Baron de Ley based in Rioja, will be a spotlight guest in attendance and will discuss the wines with each course. Each course is individually tailored to the select wines and is prepared by our own Chef Justin Rambo-Garwood.

From Charleston City Paper’s Best Sommelier, Andres Contreras, “From my first sip of Rioja wine I was instantly enamored. This type of wine is incredibly versatile in the world of cuisine and unmatched in quality and value. It is a true pleasure to be working with Carolina Wine Brands, Southern Glazer’s, and Baron De Ley for this dinner and we look forward to sharing this experience with our guests.”
