Winemaker dinner in either New Orleans or Baton Rouge?

I'm thinking of giving my parents the gift of a winemaker dinner for Christmas. I don't live in Louisiana anymore so I'm not up to speed on what may or may not be happening as far as wine dinners go.

Where I live, certain restaurants periodically host wine dinners. Basically, a winemaker from some winery (usually domestic) visits the restaurant and a special multi-course meal with wine pairings is planned. That is the only thing available in the restaurant that night so all patrons are participating and the winemaker talks about each wine as it is served.

So...does anyone know of any restaurants in New Orleans or Baton Rouge that do events like this? Thanks for your help!

  1. In Baton Rouge, Juban's often has special events as does Galatoire's Bistro. I believe Juban's has some things scheduled for the holidays.

      Thanks so much. Galatoire's Bistro is right near my parents' house and Juabn's is an old favorite so thanks for the suggestions. I just checked out their websites and they both appear to be doing this kind of thing. I'll give them a call to see if they have anything planned in the new year.
