The Wine Regions of France
185€ per person
In this seminar and tasting,
we navigate our way through France, visiting each main wine growing region,
tasting seven wines, as we dine on seven beautifully paired dishes for a very french gastronomic experience!
We start with a Rosé from Provence, before arriving
to the Loire Valley, for a food friendly
and refreshing white wine.
Moving on, we to stop in Burgundy, where
Chardonnay is queen of the whites,
and is quite a delight,
and where Pinot Noir is the prince of the reds.
From there we stop off in the Beaujolais
region to discuss Cru Beaujolais,
(I'll explain what "nouveau beaujolais" REALLY is, and the difference between the nouveau and the crus!)
Before getting to the King of Reds, in Bordeaux,
we will head to the South of France and taste the consistently fabulous wine from the Rhone Valley!
Lastly, a little bubbly from Alsace!
A gourmet dinatoire is served that includes artisinal cheeses and breads, and other delicatible treats, such as Smoked Salmon, a Tower of Provençal vegetables with Beef, a secretly spiced Carrot Soup, and of course,
a lovely dessert.
This tasting and seminar is heavy on the seminar part,
as well as the tasting (both food and wine!). We go over basic to intermediate wine knowledge, along with lots of wine trivia that is sure impress your friends!
