A Serene Night At Galatoire’s

Oh, summertime: It’s hot and humid all day, every day till basically October. The upside? We get to spend time indoors drinking rosé and other wines!

We love Summer in NOLA for a variety of reasons, one being that Galatoire’s hosts wine dinners all season long with great food and the most amazing winemakers in the country.

A few days ago, we attended their very first one with Domaine Serene, an award-winning Oregon winery. We were greeted with plenty of ice-cold rosé and we proceeded to sample many more of their fantastic wines.

Check out what we ate a drank, and why you should start looking up tickets for their next wine dinner!

Not only did we eat some of New Orleans’ finest foods, but we also got to sample and learn a lot about this winery and about each individual award-winning wine. These dinners are the perfect birthday present, date night, or even just a simple #treatyourself gift to yourself.

We can’t wait for the next one, we hope to see y’all there!
