On Tuesday, October 29, 7:00 p.m., the Pluckemin Inn, Bedminster, New Jersey, will host a special dinner with courses paired with the vintages of Bordeaux’s Château Pontet-Canet.

Château Pontet-Canet is a winery in the Pauillac appellation of the Bordeaux region of France. This is also the name of the red wine produced by the winery. The wine was classified as one of the eighteen Cinquièmes Crus (Fifth Growths) in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855.

Ten years following the 1855 classification, the property was purchased by Herman Cruse in 1865, in whose family the estate remained for many years. The Bordeaux wine fraud scandal in 1973 forced the sale, in 1975, of Ponet-Canet to Cognac merchant Guy Tesseron, owner of Château Lafon-Rochet.
