Vicariously French (Food & Wine) with Karen Ralph

September 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Metrovino,
722 11th Ave SW , Calgary, Alberta T2R 0E4 Canada
+ Google Map

This is a sit down tasting. In France, lunch is taken seriously: the shops close at noon, reopening for the late afternoon and early evening. The boulangeries and boucheries open early in the morning and it’s well worth getting out of bed to buy a baguette that’s so fresh and warm it’s still crackling. Walking to the store and buying a wine that’s so local that you might have walked through the vineyard is a luxury that we Calgarians are…

This is a Festival Style Tasting (Stand up and mingle). The ancient quaff of many Celtic peoples, cider is on a contemporary rampage of popularity! We are going to pour only ciders that represent the pure and natural expression of the fruit, not those nasty little coloured and flavoured “alco-pop” impostors (Mango and Lime “cider”, indeed!)  Only apples and pears and quince, oh my! Cider, when natural, is a low-alcohol, gluten-free, tasty beer alternative.  We’ll offer up a set of…

This is a sit down tasting. Metrovino is completely bonkers over Riesling and we’re ecstatic that the mania seems to be catching on worldwide! Whether it’s bone-dry or juicy and “fruchtig,” leave the 1970s stereotypes at home get down with the most dynamic and exciting wine-grape on the planet.   For the sake of simplicity, we’ll keep it strictly German this time around.     _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The Presenter Al Drinkle “Dipsomaniacal Troglodyte” Perpetually curious and ever thirsty.

November 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Metrovino,
722 11th Ave SW , Calgary, Alberta T2R 0E4 Canada
+ Google Map

This is a sit down tasting with very limited space. Domaine Francois Lamarche’s monopole vineyard, La Grande Rue, is one of Vosne-Romanee’s six Grand Cru sites.  It’s sandwiched between La Tache to the south and La Romanee, Romanee-Conti and Romanee-St. Vivant to the north. All Burgundy experts agree that a bottle of Grande Rue should be one of the world’s truly great expressions of Pinot Noir and after decades of disappointment on the part of the critics, it seems that…

This is a sit down tasting. France’s Jura region is only a 90-minute drive east of Burgundy on the Swiss border, but it might as well be on another planet. It’s the land of Comté cheese and Morteau sausage and the wildest wines in the world – once you’ve tried them, you’ll never be the same. They’ve got sparkling covered, and quirky reds and whites, but what about the legendary “yellow wine,” or the “straw wine?” Come find out – your…
