The Bebedero’s signature experience for The Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions:

Bucket List Mezcal and Tequila Dinner Party

As regulars know, The Bebedero is home to one of the top selections of mezcal and tequila in Virginia. Yet, even The Bebedero’s most loyal customers have never enjoyed a night like this. The Bebedero team will come to the home of the auction winner and treat them and nine guests to an agave-lover’s evening of a lifetime. The Bebedero co-owner River Hawkins, one of Virginia’s top experts on mezcal and tequila, will walk guests through a series of rare and exclusive spirits, some of which cannot be found anywhere else in the United States. For tequila, there will be a mix of traditional approaches and modern innovations, with a focus on rare and exclusive bottles. As for mezcal, guests will sample unusual, wild agave varietals as well as those crafted with strange traditional practices, including some of the rarest artisan spirits in the world, from tiny distillers in rural Mexican villages.

To do justice to the spirits, Chef Kelvino will prepare his dream Mexican dinner – a six-course menu ranging from Veracruz to Puebla, each course paired with tequila, mezcal, or cocktails by Hawkins.

It’s the ultimate The Bebedero dining experience: a Bucket List Mezcal and Tequila Dinner Party.

Note: The auction winner will schedule their experience on a date that is mutually convenient for The Bebedero.
