As a founding member of the #JuanGilFanClub (that to date exists only as a hashtag, but really does deserve its own following) I had to pass this event notice along.

Especially at the really fair price of $65. Dinners like this usually go for $100+.

Many of the wines and dishes being served line up well with my favorites from a trip to Spain a couple years ago. Juan Gil Monastrell is an amazing value, and Clio takes it to the next level. The other wines are part of the Gil Family Estates offerings - given the quality of the Gil Family wines I've tried I'd be very interested in exploring the others.

If you can battle your way through the snow (that seems to come every few days this winter in Massachusetts) this sounds like a great event.
