TASTE & TERROIR:
BRITTANY, LOIRE & BURGUNDY
THURSDAY 6TH MARCH 2014
We are delighted to invite you to join us for the first in a series of tastings of food & wine pairings and how this is influenced by the terroir of regions. We will explore why these pairings work so well, discovering other perfect matches including beers, cider, charcuterie and other produce grown & caught local to the region.
We begin with Spring in France, as Patricia takes guests on a journey through the regions beginning on La Côte d'Emeraude & Le Cote de Granit Rose in Brittany. We then head along Côte Fleurie to Normandy, followed by the Loire & Burgundy, looking at both the classic as well as slightly unusual pairings exploring the taste & traditions of the regional terroirs.
