The Wine & Winemaker Built for Our Food (November 11th)

On November 11th, Christophe Mersiol, of Domaine Mersiol, will be visiting Camber-ville from Dambach-la-Ville in the heart of Alsace. Christophe’s family has lived in the medieval city since the 18th century, and they started making wine just after World War II.  Working the dirt in the Grand Cru Frankstein, Christophe gives the majority of his attention to his vines – thinking the wine will turn out right if the vineyard is nurtured.

Having visited the region in June, our own Carl York came away thinking every winemaker in Alsace was equal parts geologist, historian and farmer, and he couldn’t be more excited to spend the evening with Christophe, breaking bread and sharing his wines. Chef de Cuisine Carl Dooley is forging and foraging ahead on a menu designed to perfectly complement the mostly white wine line-up. This is a unique opportunity to share an intimate table with a winemaker’s winemaker – a young, handsome French winemaker and kindred spirit who believes in exactly the same things that Craigie does.

Dinner: 5 courses paired with wines and love:
$115 plus tax and gratuity. Seating is extremely limited. First come, first served.

You Asked for Wine Pairings. We’ve Delivered. (November 1st)
Based on the ever-changing nature of our signature six- and eight-course Tasting Menus, we’ve usually shied away from wine pairings at Craigie on Main. That said, we love having a good time as much as the next guy. Our solution: We’ve teamed up with Eric Broege, owner, wine buyer and Nebbiolo-zealot from Vintages in Concord and Belmont. For one night only, we’re giving him the keys to the cellar, letting him bring in some of his own favorite bottles, and turning him loose. Eric will be on the floor presiding over the tasting menu and pairings, as well as being available to chat, offer suggestions, and opine about all things wine. The Riesling-Obsessed Craigie Cru will also be around for support and to keep refreshing Eric’s palate with grower Champagne (or Sekt!!).

Seats are expected to fill up quickly, so please be sure to make your reservations now

Available on Sunday evenings after 9:00 pm. Chef de Cuisine Carl Dooley and his kitchen team cook for your table – a six-course surprise menu for $57, or an abbreviated four-course menu for $45. Through the years, Chef Tony Maws has loved to cook and serve up impromptu dishes that may not be on the regular menu, and here the kitchen is at their most inventive, spontaneous, and generous. It’s never the same meal twice and your palates and pocketbooks are the winners!
