Wineries of Niagara on the Lake wine and herb weekendFriday January 19th, 2018: Wines of Southwest France

Join us for an evening exploring the wines of Southwest France. South of Bordeaux, the wines of this region are many and varied. From robust Bordeaux-style reds to the black wines of Cahors (home of Malbec), all the way to whites and luscious dessert wines. Lesser-known in our market, and often confused with the regions of Languedoc-Roussillon to the south, this area is also a food-lover’s paradise. We’ll sample whites and reds, lighter to full-bodied – and maybe a few surprises as well. If you want to discover a lesser-known region often offering great value, chat informally about the world of wine, and learn a few “go to” dishes for pairing with your wine, this is the evening for you.

All wines will be in the $10-$20 sweet spot, ideal for all your entertaining needs. Wines will be matched with tasty hors d’oeuvres that you will learn to make through the evening (a mixture of hands-on and demonstration dishes). Neil Phillips of vinceteragroup.com will talk you through the pairings. Impress your friends with your wine knowledge and wow their palates with some “easier to make than you think” hors d’oeuvres!
