It’s 2 pm and we have our annual Summer Wines and French Country buffet event this evening. 50 members will come to taste 5 different wines from the Alsace region of France starting with a refreshing Rose Cremant made of 100% Pinot Noir and produced in the traditional Champagne manner. Then it’s onto a Sylvaner, a white wine with few pretensions and meant to be enjoyed with salads and light uncomplicated dishes. Next, a gold Medal Riesling, which is the leading varietal of Alsace. Fourth is a Gewurztraminer with a real aromatic personality and freshness. And last but not least, an Alsatian Pinot Noir – an excellent example of the progress that has been achieved with the challenging grape in Alsace.
Enjoy some pics below as the team prepares for this fantastic summer event. And be sure to check back afterwards to see photos of the event itself!
