Laval and Marguet Champagne Dinner
November 12, 6:30 pm

It has become an Olea tradition to host a very special Champagne dinner each November featuring the acclaimed and unique sparkling wines produced by Champagne Georges Laval, a small grower/producer in the village of Cumières in the Marne Valley region of France.

The dinner will be held Nov. 12 this year, and it will be more effervescent than ever as the Laval wines will be accompanied by Champagnes produced by another premier grower/producer, Benoit Marguet of Champagne Marguet Pere & Fils in Ambonnay, France.

Vincent Laval and Benoit Marguet both produce critically acclaimed, limited production Champagnes that are certified organic from grapes harvested in vineyards still plowed by horses—and both are in the vanguard when it comes to presenting the world’s top Champagnes.

We hope you’ll join us for a special evening Nov. 12, beginning at 6:30 pm. The cost for the 4-course dinner is $200 per person, all inclusive. RSVP by calling Olea at 203.780.8925, or sending an email to to reserve. Space is limited and the dinner typically sells out, so contact us as soon as possible.
