The Millennium Bostonian Hotel, celebrating 30 years of award-winning service to travelers, offers a very special opportunity this winter to mark the occasion by ordering from a wine list of many highly notable California wines for an unprecedented price - $30 a bottle.
Thirty years ago, Director of Food and Beverage Sean Moesman points out, the hotel's restaurant, Seasons, now North 26 was the city's premiere dining spot with a trendsetting wine list of California varietals that had not yet made the impact that they have today. "We think it makes perfect sense to celebrate both our anniversary and heritage," he points out, "by offering a well-rounded list of California wines at a remarkable price that pays tribute to our opening 30 years ago." The promotion runs through March 3.
The wines (all prices are retail) include:
J Cuvee, California, $95.00 White Wines:
Jordan Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, 2009, $85.00
Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay, Napa Valley, 2009, $115.00 Caymus Conundrum, California, 2010, $65.00
Mt. Veeder Cabernet, Napa Valley, 2009, $85.00
Sequoia Grove Cabernet, Napa Valley, 2009, $105.00
Kenwood Jack London Cabernet, Sonoma Valley, 2009 $80.00 MerryVale Starmont Merlot, Napa Valley, 2009 $75.00
Ferrari-Carano Merlot, Alexander Valley, 2009 $95.00
Patz & Hall Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast, 2010 $105.00
These wines were ahead of their time and today, their prices have, in some cases, more than tripled.
