Keeping Warm

Thursday, January 22

This week at the tasting table I'll be opening up a 2006 Bordeaux, one of my latest finds under $20. Then, because no matter how cold it is outside there's always room for a beautiful white, I'll be also opening the new vintage of Domaine Richou, Chauvigné from Anjou. And finally because it will be somewhere in the mid- to high-teens tomorrow, I'm planning to warm everyone up with an outstanding red Rhone from Louis Saladin and Filles that waters my mouth every time I talk about it. 95% Syrah, 5% Viogier.

I'll see you tonight at 6pm.

A Tasting Class - Food & Wine Pairing

Do you panic when you are handed the wine list? Are you intimidated by the process of food and wine pairing? There are many techniques that we would love to share with you, including some well-kept secrets behind the fun of food & wine pairing. Using some of the basic building blocks of weight, intensity, acidity, sweetness, and tannin, we will teach you how to choose the perfect wine to accompany your meal, and perhaps inspire you to diversify your plate.
