Wine Curation Program

Many thanks to the incredible restaurants that partnered with us for our first ever Wine Curation Program!

During our 2016-17 season José Mateo Ballet Theatre partnered with the four restaurants below who hand-selected the wine served at our concerts. cThese talented folks really knew their stuff and our audiences loved the rotating selection. We look forward to offering this program again for our 2017-18 season.

If you work for a local bar or restaurant and would like to partner with us, please contact Lori at



The wine curation for IMPELLING FORCES will be done by Stan Hilbert at Forage restaurant in Cambridge.

The menu at Forage is local and seasonal-ingredient driven with a focus on classic fare with an innovative twist.  The Forage bar serves craft cocktails and offers a carefully curated yet approachable collection of organic/biodynamic white, red, and sparkling wines; small grower champagnes; and an “outside-the-box” selection of beer.
