Treat Your Tastebuds with a Moulin Rouge Wine Dinner at Marcel on February 9!

Join Atlanta Ballet dancer John Welker and retired Atlanta Ballet dancer Christine Winkler on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 for an elegant wine dinner at Marcel to celebrate Atlanta Ballet’s production of Moulin Rouge® – The Ballet. Executive Chef Brian Horn will create a special five-course menu inspired by the ballet’s vibrant romance and late 19th century la vie bohème. Beverage Manager Eduardo Guzman and Perrine Prieur of Perrine’s Wine Shop will partner to pair the evening’s menu with their favorite French wine varietals.
