Sherry! Sherry Baby!

We here at Saint James love Sherry and we are partnering up with our friends at Swirl Wines for a tasting of it! Albariza, Palomino, Bodega, Solera, Capataz, Venencia, Fino…if any of these words peak your interest, John Mitchell and Liz Dowty, the resident NOLA experts on Sherry (who may or may not be founding members of the NOLA Sherry Mafia) invite you to get “flor’d” with us on Thursday, October 8th. Jerez, the region for producing Sherry in Spain, could possibly be the frontrunner for the least known and misunderstood wine region in the world. We will be pouring a wide selection of Sherries from this “Bermuda Triangle” hoping to demystify these complex wines and teach you why sherry is so much more than “Grandma’s bedtime drink”. Cheese, Serrrano ham, sherry what more could you want?

Parmigiano-Reggiano / 7:00

Parmigiano Reggiano is not only one of the greatest cheeses in the world but one of the greatest foods in the world. An ingredient that is used by great chefs in all styles of food, and found all through out American resturants and homes. We will be working with the Consorzio del Parmigiano-Reggiano to highlight this most magnificent of cheeses. The two greatest cheesemongers in the U.S., the Mighty Justin Trosclair and the Great James Gentry, will be on hand to show us the traditional way to open a Parmigiano and to guide us through a tasting of aged cheeses, aged at 14 months, 24 months and 36 months. Martha Wiggins (head chef of Sylvain) will be making a few dishes based on Parmigiano and the Consorzio has sent us a few gifts to give out as well. Chris Noyes of Winebow will be bringing wines from Tuscany and Piedmont to pair up with these tasty dishes, not to mention Clever & Co’s charcuterie and Bellegarde Bakery’s bread. This is a very limited event and seats will be held to 25 only, get ‘em while there hot. A night celebrating a truly fantastic food, not to be missed. $50.

Rhône Valley / 7:00

The Rhône Valley is a large region that stands on the dividing line of the north of France and the south. Starting just below Lake Geneva and going down to the Mediterranian it encompasses cool mountain climates down to warm costal regions. We will be focusing on the areas of the valley contained mostly in the govenmental region of the Rhône-Alpes. Often called the gastronomic center of France it holds what most chefs consider to be the greatest gastronomic city in the world, Lyon. The cheese that we will be using will be alpine syles and the country style tommes that come from the mountainous regions and some of the smaller runnier cheeses from farther south. This region is cow country and the majority of the cheese will reflect that. This area produces some very well known cheeses (Tomme Savoie, Reblochon, St. Marcellin, Fourme d’Ambert and various types of Raclette) and you may hve heard of their wines as well. Rhône valley wines are really a steal for the price as compared to Burgundy and Bordeaux and the quality is in some opinions better – fantatic rose’s, fruity perfumy whites and big robust reds with the vigonier, syrah and grenache grapes being used the most. A tasting for people who like there flavors big and bold. Bellegarde Bakery providing bread and Cleaver & Co providing charcuterie. $35.

Tuscany / 7:00

Tuscany is famous for a lot of things, Etruscan heritage, the birth of the Renaissance, birthplace of artists like DaVinci and perhaps the most traveled to vacation destination in Italy. Tuscany also has some fantastic food including cheese. Sheeps milk reign in this area of Italy with one of the most famous of all sheeps milk, Pecorino Toscano. Many claim (moslty Tuscans) tha the Romans learned to make aged pecorinos from the Etruscans in this area and the history of dairy production has a long history here that undoubtedly effected the cheese making traditons in neighboring Lazio, Emilia-Romagna, and the Marches. Chris Noyes of Winebow will be bringing Tuscany’s other speciality – wine. Chris will be focusing on one specific area of Tuscany (no not Chianti) Montalcino. Montalcino is home of one of the most sought after and expenseive wines in Italy, Brunello di Montalcino. The Sangiovese grape is the most widely planted grape in the Montalcino region and is the only permitted grape in the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. Brunello is often compared with the Pinot Noir wines of Burgundy with its smooth tannins and ripe, fruit driven character. The high acidity of the wine allows it to pair well with food, especially cheese and charcuterie. Bellegarde Bakery will be providing bread and Cleaver & Co providing charcuterie. A treat for any lover of great Italian food and wine! $40.
