Mika, Charles and the Chefs explore its deep, classical roots and curate with a night with incredibly special wines featuring Jura’s indigenous grapes, the ‘sous voile’ aging phenomenon and the bursting ingredients of this terroir and the dishes that ensue. Mika brings us Crémants, Vin Jaunes and Macvins and more from Tissot, Ganevat, Rolet, Montbourgeau and more. Heather and Hugue will make culinary classics their own.

The vines in Jura are predominantly grown on Jurassic period limestone and marl - the name Jurassic itself being a nod to the region.

Where orchards of sugar maple trees cover the land, there are usually boisterous, magical places called Sugar Shacks, the dining and recreational halls attached to the maple sugaring houses of the Northeast and of course Québec! As the sap flows from the forest to the boiler room and the sweet water turns to golden and amber syrups, the adjacent 

Sugar Shacks become electric. 

At M. Wells, the tables are teeming with big foods and pitchers of all kinds, surrounded by friends and family, hockey, pétanque, live music and maple syrup. A great pastime we bring to Queens. The Sugar Shack stage hosts talented musicians that perform at such fabulous venues as Jalopy Theater and Barbés. We will once again play the long day away at two Sugar Shack Sundays this April. TICKETS are available HERE.
