La Belle Vie

Particiating in Minnesota Monthly‘s Wine Week: October 4-10, 2009

For Wine Week, La Belle Vie sought out stellar wines for a pairing with Tim McKee’s truly stellar, James Beard Award-winning cuisine. Each bottling has been carefully selected to match one of Chef McKee’s vibrant, seasonal dishes in one of three flights.

The flight paired to the four-course tasting menu, available in the Lounge only, is specially priced for Wine Week at $19:


Cava, Parxet 21,
Costa Brava, Spain NV
Grüner Veltliner, Danubio,
Danauland, Austria 2008
Plasir de Lys, Khal Khal Pamies,
Minervois, France 2006


The flights accompanying the five and eight course tasting menus showcase wines that would normally be far too expensive too feature, rare wines that are even rarer on Twin Cities wine lists:
