Parallel 37 has joined forces with the Boisset Collection of award winning wineries to present a series of exclusive wine pairing dinners throughout 2017 at the Forbes Four Star restaurant. The Boisset Collection encompasses more than 25 renowned wineries around the world with more than 20 centuries of combined winemaking history, both in the rich wine regions of California ̶ including Buena Vista Winery, the state’s first premium winery ̶ and in Burgundy.  The ‘Boisset Collection Wine Dinner Series at Parallel 37’ will feature specially crafted menus by Chef de Cuisine and Charlie Trotter-alum, Michael Rotondo that highlight  the restaurant’s concept of globally-influenced California cuisine made with the finest seasonal Bay Area ingredients and perfectly paired with the prestigious portfolio of wines.

Each wine pairing dinner will begin with a reception in the bar and lounge of Parallel 37, followed by dinner in the main dining room and finish with dessert in the neighboring JCB Tasting Lounge located in the lobby of the hotel. At each event, guests will have the opportunity to engage with Chef Rotondo and the winemakers.
