¡Che! An Argentinian Wine Tasting at Heirloom in New Haven
Posted May 20 2011 5:24pm
Hello to all my gluten-free foodie friends who happen to like a good glass of wine too… I would like to let you know about a fabulous event taking place this coming Thursday, May 26th, 2011 at Heirloom Restaurant at the Study Hotel in New Haven, Connecticut.
Heirloom will be hosting the 4th Pop Up “Farm to Wine Dinner” 5 Argentinian inspired plates and five wines (from Mendoza to Patagonia) for $55. The passionate, Maurice Juarez , sommelier of New Haven, Connecticut, will be speaking about the wine selection and food pairings. If you aren’t familiar with an event hosted by this engaging sommelier and self-taught chef , click on his name above to see him in action.
As someone who has always been fascinated by Argentina, its wine, its tango, its asados (Argentinian barbeque), I am excited to be attending this event because there are some varietals and regions being featured that you don’t normally find on restaurants’ wine lists. I am newbie with the Bonarda varietal and I have never had a wine from Patagonia . Yes, wine from Patagonia does exist and boy, Maurice has selected a nice Pinot Noir for the tasting!
To top off the evening in a most appropriate manner, there will be a tango/milonga demonstration. What Argentinian wine tasting would be complete without the sounds of the bandoneon and the intricate foot work of the tango?
I hope to see you there!
