The $10 per-person event is reflective of new trends in beverages across the nation for "innovation" wines that are good-tasting and easy to drink immediately upon opening.

The only location in Fullerton offering a wine pairing with this accessible approach and at this price point, visitors of the new informal monthly series will enjoy 3-4 wines from a featured vintner with three pairings of hearty, thoughtful, seasonal and local small plates as part of this unique downtown Fullerton experience:

April 17 - Southern Classics paired with J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines

  • Chardonnay with Voodoo Shrimp
  • Sauvignon Blanc with Tomato Bisque and Gouda and Cheddar Parmesan Crusted Grilled Cheese

Says Bourbon Street co-owner and unpretentious wine enthusiast John Skehan, "Our spring wine selections are fresh, crisp, and enjoyable anytime, just like the Bourbon Street menu items they are paired with. We proudly continue to show a newer, gentler face of our restaurant and bar through this series."
