This fall, Talulla in Cambridge is doing “Ladies’ Night” a little differently. To honor and celebrate all the brilliant women in the hospitality industry they’re hosting a Women x Wine series, inviting a different female wine professional each week to choose wines for a multi-course dinner from the chef. From sommeliers to winemakers, you’ll have the opportunity to be wined and dined by some of the most impressive and knowledgeable ladies in the historically male-dominated industry. The series kicks off on Wednesday, October 16th with Advanced Sommelier Lauren Daddona of AP Wine Imports — consult the rest of the schedule below. Tickets are $80 including your four-course meal plus Lauren’s wines. Scope the full schedule below, and make your reservations here.
