Provençal dinner with Francois Sack and his son Jonathan, the winemakers of Clos Sainte Magdeleine.

Some spots are the cradle of genius. Provence is one.”-Lawrence Durell

Bonjour mes amis! It has been said that French cuisine has the power to change lives. A sip of an aged Cassis or a hint of Mediterranean salt can hurl its savorers back in time and across the pond to a dreamy land of possibilité. Dreamers and truth-seekers alike flock to France’s southeastern coast to bask in the magic of golden Provence. Its colors may be immortalized in Van Gogh’s paintings and its hazy light the adoration of silver-tongued poets, but its food and wine we now have an opportunity to savor. On Saturday May 4th, Luce is offering a five-course Provencal dinner paired with Provencal wines. The evening will be hosted by Francois Sack and his son Jonathan, the winemakers of Clos Sainte Magdeleine in Cassis, France. Spots available for 20 fortunate souls. Come sing Provence’s praises.

5 courses + wine pairing for $75.
Make reservations at
dinner is at 7:30pm

The wines we will be pouring with dinner:
2011 Cassis Rosé
2010 Cassis Blanc Magnums 
2009 Domaine Tempier, Bandol Rouge 
2009 Domaine de Durban, Muscat de Beaumes de Venise 375mls 

All of these wines will be available for sale, with discounted retail prices, as well. 

From the sea-sprayed vineyards perched atop limestone cliffs, the Sack-Zafripulos family has been making wine for four generations.  Clos Sainte Magdeleine’s success lies in an uncanny ability to capture a nerve and a sun-kissed unctuousness in their wines, making them both incredibly food-friendly and delicious entirely on their own. 

John Willis, the chef at Luce, will be deviating from Italian fare for the evening and exploring the Provencal region, a place that ranks high in his culinary and cultural imagination.
