Menton may be a special-occasion destination, but longtime Wine Director Cat Silirie’s list is less focused on impressive “name” producers than it is on food-friendly, terroir-specific wines. Eat à la carte or embark on the eight-course “chef’s whim” tasting menu.
From The Sommelier: “I deeply believe that the qualities of imagination, passion, empathy and WONDER are the keys to being a talented wine-drinker. Wonder is my favorite quality in a ‘wine person’. Our approach to wine service and wine appreciation is based on these values and our guests seem to respond in kind!” —Cat Silirie, Menton
