Taste of France
Wine Pairing Dinner Series
Reservations required: (304) 876-8477
March 19: Burgundy – POSTPONED
Bistro’s second in a series of three wine pairings is the Burgundy region in central France. The reputation and quality of the top wines, together with the fact that they are often produced in small quantities, has led to high demand and high prices for wines from this region. The richness of the food from Burgundy is largely due to the preparation of sauces using wine, like à la bourguignon, and its beef cattle. And some of the best cheeses in France many say come from this region.
The Bistro will be preparing a menu based on foods of this region such as beef bourguignon, rillettes, snails, black currents, cheeses.
The wines will be from St Veran, Burgundy & Beaujolais.
April 16: Rosé
To celebrate Spring, Bistro’s third in a series of three wine pairings is rose wines from around France. France is the largest maker and exporter of rosé wines as of the beginning of the 21st century. And within France, Provence is the largest region. These wines should be chilled and are best paired with light salads, appetizers, seafood and chicken. To celebrate the various Rose producing regions, the Bistro will be offering a sampling of foods from these regions.
The Bistro will be preparing a menu to include bruschetta, grilled seafood, creamy soups & fruit tart.
The wines will be from Cotes du Jura, Provence, Tavel & Burgundy.
