Wine tasting & food pairing: Burgundy & Provence: Winedown Wednesday

Type of event:


Wednesday, July 19, 2017
7 pm
37 Morrison Drive
Yellowknife, NT
Chez Taylors

This evening we will indulge in Burgundy & Provence, pairing Opimian wines with sumptuous regional pairings.

Bourgogne covers most of eastern central France and produces some of the world’s most expensive wines, alongside some of the most under-valued and well-priced ones. Burgundians cling to their traditions and proudly show their cultural heritage through their food & wine offerings.

Lavender-covered Provence is, well, rosé nirvana, with outstanding landscapes bordering the Mediterranean Sea. Beyond rosé, however, are also red and whites of merit and surprising value. Tasty treats in the Provençal cuisine repertoire include tapenades, pastas, herbs & breads. All of which we will sample!

The wines from this event are aligned with C251 open for ordering from July 7 until August 11, 2017.
