French Wine 101 Bootcamp
Wine Director and Sommelier, Bryan Lamorena
For Course 2 in our Wine 101 series, we get together with frame’s resident wine director and sommelier Bryan Lamorena for an evening dedicated to six French wines.
We’ll be cracking open the books, well actually cracking open the bottles, to get versed on topics from the likes of: Why French wine has dominated the world wine market. Is it because they make the best wine or because they’ve had the best location? What is terroir? Who is a sommelier? Does Champagne, the wine, really have to come from Champagne, the region?
In this two hour intro course into France’s wines, you’ll learn about major varietals and regions, key terms, wine law, and some bonus tips on pairing French wines with food.

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
