Evanston, Illinois: Serbian Wine Dinner at Quince


May 22, 2014
06:30 PM


Quince restaurant will hold a four course, Serbian wine dinner on Thursday, May 22. Executive Chef Andy Motto has created four dishes (prawn; squab; bison; dessert) to pair with Francuska Vinarija wine. Wine Director Scott Quint will lead this event, discussing the interesting history of the vineyard. The evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. and the fee to attend is $70 per guest (exclusive of tax and gratuity).  

The winemakers behind Francuska Vinarija ("French Winery") are Cyrille and Estelle Bongiraud. Cyrille spend much of his career consulting for over 200 estates in France, the U.S., Spain and Italy. He and his wife decided to create a project of their own, and in 2007, found the ultimate terroir in Rogljevo on Serbia's eastern border. The Bongirauds make this organic wine on 60 hectares with seven villagers who own the vines. They feel they have revived the forgotten treasure of winemaking in this historic region, an area where growers once lost the right to make wine.
