Corbett's Louisville Announces Wine Down Thursdays

At Corbett’s, we know that there’s no better way to “wine down” after a tough day than with a glass of wine perfectly paired with fresh, seasonal dishes. To help guests relax and make time for the finer things in life, Corbett’s has created a new monthly wine dinner series that will be held throughout 2009. The first series kicks off on Thursday, January 8th with a salute to Spain.

The price of each “Wine Down Thursdays” event is $75 per person plus tax and gratuity. All dinners take place in Corbett’s Wineskellar and began at 6:30 p.m. Each tasting is limited to 40 guests. A perfect holiday gift for wine enthusiasts, the entire series can be purchased for $750, a price that reflects two complimentary months.

This dinner series will feature a minimum of five wines that have all been carefully matched to a five-course dinner prepared by chefs Chris Howerton and Kevin Rice. At each tasting, the focus will be on a new wine region. With the guidance of Corbett's sommelier Troy Ritchie, guests will learn about the various grapes from the selected region and come away with a new appreciation for the varietals of the evening.

“We wanted this series to be more than just your average wine dinner,” said Ritchie. “It includes a strong educational component tied to an exceptional dinner. It’s a chance for me to share my passion of wine with fellow wine-lovers, both novice and experts alike, while working with chefs Howerton and Rice to have each wine reach its full potential with the food pairings.

The 2009 “Wine Down Thursdays” are February 19, March 19, April 2, May 14, June 18, July 16, August 20, September 10, October 8, November 12, and December 17.

Corbett’s: An American Place is located at 5050 Norton Healthcare Boulevard in Old Brownsboro Crossing in east Louisville. Corbett’s is open for lunch Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dinner hours are 5 to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday. For more information or to make reservations, call (502) 327-5058.
