The Best of France:
From Grand Crus to First Growths
Wednesday, December 13th, 6:00pm
Ask and you shall receive! Join us on December 13th for a special wine tasting as we break into some of the finest wines that our cellar has to offer, including First Growth Bordeaux's and Grand Cru Burgundies! NRG Wine Director Erin Dudley will lead you through a tasting of six of our favorite "collector wines" -- wines that are sold at auctions for hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of dollars. It's not every day we get to open these rare treats, but it's the holiday season, and we are ready to share some of this prestige!
Welcome to Josephine, an everyday French brasserie and bar located in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. Inspired by classic Parisian eateries, Josephine brings the timeless charm and culinary traditions of France to the neighborhood.
The menu, lovingly crafted by Chef Matt Cockrell, combines classic, time-honored dishes that include a broad range of salads, appetizers, and entrees along with an extensive raw bar. The cuisine is complemented by a stellar selection of Champagne, old world wines, cocktails and craft ales.
Whether it’s a quick aperitif at the bar, an intimate rendezvous in the atrium or a sumptuous and celebratory meal with friends and family, Josephine combines the cinematic grandeur of a timeless café with the spirit and warmth of a refreshingly unpretentious and altogether delicious neighborhood eatery.
Our hidden bar and lounge at the top of the stairs of Josephine is the perfect hideaway for champagne and cocktail lovers alike. Bar Jo boasts a menu of wine and spirits accompanied by small bites great for soaking up sparklers of all kinds. Join us for an unforgettable experience and keep an eye on the calendar for exclusive classes and events!
