Bar Boulud Hosts Gaja Wine Dinner on Saturday

If you always envisioned enjoying fine wine from Italy’s northwest Piedmont region without having to travel too far from Boston, you’re in luck.

On Saturday night, Bar Boulud at the Mandarin Oriental is hosting an exclusive tasting experience with guest Giovanni Gaja whose family history of wine making dates back to 1859. The fifth-generation wine-making family is best known for their wine’s structure, finesse and flavor depth.
