Join us for an elegant dinner to celebrate the fantastic wines of Château Lynch-Bages. This Pauillac estate has been producing superb wines since the early 18th century.

We are honored to have the co-owner of Château Lynch-Bages, Kinou Cazes-Hachemian, as our host for this very special evening.
Chef Tony Maws, James Beard Award winner and Chef/Owner of Craigie on Main and Kirkland Tap & Trotter, has designed an innovative menu using locally grown and sourced products to compliment these unique wines.

Kinou Cazes Hachemian, Owner, Château Lynch-Bages
Kinou Cazes Hachemian, fourth generation owner is currently responsible for representing Lynch-Bages and the wines from the family estates throughout North America.
Kinou grew up in Pauillac where her family has its roots but began her career in New York working in advertising. She came back to France to work for the insurance group AXA and in 1996 joined AXA Equitable in New York.
Wine and the art of living have been her enduring interests. Now living near New York City with her husband and children, she collects objects connected to wine and gastronomy from all over the world, and sources the designer creations and works of art that can be admired throughout the Lynch-Bages wineries and in the boutiques of the village of Bages.
Kinou is a fan of all of life’s pleasures especially those of the table. To celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Cazes Family at Lynch-Bages she compiled a book, Lynch-Bages & Co., a Family, a wine and 52 recipes, detailing the history of Lynch-Bages together with a history of the Cazes family cuisine, enjoyed by guests in the Cordeillan-Bages restaurant and at family gatherings.
Tony Maws, Chef and Proprietor, Craigie on Main & The Kirkland Tap and Trotter
Since opening his first restaurant, Craigie Street Bistrot, in 2002, Chef Tony Maws has risen to international acclaim for his innovative and creative work in the kitchen, dedication to showcasing locally grown produce and locally caught seafood on the menu, as well as the high expectations he sets for himself and his staff. Maws continually earns recognition as one of the country’s best chefs, including a James Beard Award for Best Chef Northeast 2011; “Boston’s Best Chef” 2010, 2008, 2006, and 2003 by Boston magazine; and Food & Wine magazine’s 2005 “Best New Chefs.” Today he operates two of greater Boston’s culinary gems: Craigie on Main in Cambridge and The Kirkland Tap & Trotter in Somerville.
Craigie on Main, which he opened when he outgrew Craigie Street Bistrot in 2008, gives Maws the opportunity to create a menu that epitomizes these passions. Working on the line, writing a menu that changes daily, directing the wine program, and still making time for afternoon visits from his wife, Karolyn, and his son, Charlie, Maws ensures Craigie on Main is a family-run business at which guests feel welcome, as if they were at the chef’s own home. He opened The Kirkland Tap & Trotter in fall 2013 to further this idea, offering a heartier, more casual menu in a neighborhood pub setting.
