Chef Antonio Bettencourt of 62 Restaurant & Wine Bar located in Salem, Massachusetts, has partnered with several wine organizations to launch his new ongoing Wednesday night series called “Bread, Salt, Wine.”
Based on the traditional Judeo–Christian blessing and offering brought to a new home, and in an effort to take some of the mystery out of enjoying wine, Chef Bettencourt will open his restaurant up to guests free of charge offering, wine samples, complimentary hors d'œuvres and his full “spuntini” – (small snack in Italian, similar to tapas) will be free with the purchase of one of the wines during the tasting.
“We wanted to create a fun unpretentious environment where diners could come in, try amazing wines, eat great food, socialize and learn from these amazing Boston resources,” said Chef/Owner Antonio Bettencourt. The “amazing resources” Chef Bettencourt is referring to are Boston’s premier oenophile groups, associations and schools. Included in the series: Boston Wine School, Red White Boston, Second Glass, Local Wine Events and Boston Uncorked.
Each week a group will come into the restaurant and speak about the wines served and answer any questions guests may have.
The series is offered every Wednesday night from 5:00PM-7:00PM in 62 Restaurant & Wine Bar’s Lounge and is free with RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on 62, visit 62onwharf.com.
