Islands of the Tyrrhenian Sea (Sold Out) / 7:00
The Tyrrhenian Sea is off the coast of Italy and is bounded by the islands of Corsica, Sardinia and Sicily. These 3 islands all have a somewhat similar but vastly unique culture from each other and from their respective mainlands, making for very interesting wine and cheese. Occupied by every Mediterranean power (Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Goths, Moors, Catalans, French, Italians) but maintaining their own cultures while assimilating bits and pieces of all, make for some familiar yet different cheese. Being harsh and rugged Islands goat and sheep rule the areas and with mountains producing almost alpine like climate and volcanic soils to seashore and hot inland make for a vast array of pastureland. Chris Noyes of Winebow will be bringing wines from these areas and showcasing some of the unique grape types found only on these islands and variations of Italian mainland varieties. Bellegarde Bakery will be providing bread and Cleaver & Co will be providing island inspired charcuterie. A Tyrrhenian sun soaked tasting. (Sold Out)
White Burgundy / 7:00
In 1522 Erasmus wrote: “O happy Burgundy which merits being called the mother of men since she furnishes from her mammaries such a good milk.” Burgundy is one of those places (which France seems to have so many of) that is a food lovers paradise: Charolaise cattle, Dijon mustard, Bourg-en-Bresse chickens and of course wine and cheese. Many monasteries and abbeys have existed in this area since the middle ages and they began a long tradition of cheese making with the beautiful, runny Époisses being the most famous, and the triple cream Delice de Bourgogne being another well known. Wine of course is also made in Burgundy and Morgon Stroud of Purveyor Wines will be bringing a selection of white burgundies to go with our beautiful cheeses. With wines from the areas of: Mâcon, Chablis, Chassagne-Montrachet, Meursault, and Puligny-Montrachet paired with the magnificent Burgundian cheeses not to mention charcuterie by Clever & Co and bread by Bellegarde Bakery this will be a fantastic tasting. For one night Saint James Cheese will be on the Côte-d’Or (or at least trying our best to do it justice!) $45.
