Presented by The Original Wine Company
We will sample a survey of ten of the thrilling wines from the Jura and Savoie regions of Eastern France. While many of these wines are the darlings of sommeliers, many people have yet to be acquainted with their charms. The Jura, east of Burgundy, and the Savoie, in the foothills of the French alps, are tiny wine producing regions with their own unique culture and histories. Traditionally, few of the wines have been available for import to the United States until recently. The two regions a produce a stunning range of sparkling wines, crisp whites, rich whites, light and bold reds and desert wines. Many of the wines are made from grape varieties not found anywhere else in the world. Bistronomic’s Executive Chef/Owner Martial Noguier will accompany the wines with beautiful hors d'oeuvres from the region.
