TICKETS!!

Why do we love Eric Bordelet so much?

There are many reasons to love Eric Bordelet and his ciders. In a previous life, Mr. Bordelet was a sommelier at Alain Passard's Arpege Restaurant in Paris. Opting for a change of pace, he moved to Normandy and took over his family orchard. Steeped in the traditions of wine, he grows more than 20 varieties of apple and 15 varieties of pear. While it is not uncommon to blend various varietals of apples and/or pears in a single cider, Mr. Bordelet certainly takes this approach to extremes.

What all of this means is that Mr. Bordelet is making the kind of nuanced and complex ciders of character that will convert even the most entrenched wine drinker or beer aficionado. Ciders that are perfect for pairing with food, and perfect for drinking on their own.  Ciders that raise the bar. In short, ciders to get excited about.

We're pairing these incredible ciders with Picnic's whole hog barbecue - pasture-raised in Durham and smoked over wood - and a full spread of our favorite sides. It's a perfect combination you won't want to miss.

Tickets are $26 in advance, $32 day-of, for 2 pours and a plate. A la carte options will be available, so come to eat, come to drink, or come to do both - we'll see you there!
