Saturday, October 15th from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.to celebrate our 5-Year Anniversary with Corsican wine and a feast, that you might find on the island, of roasted suckling pig.
The Domaine Maestracci Wines
Made with 100% Rolle, as it's called in France, and Malvoisie de Corse, in parts of Corsica and Vermentino in Italy. Confused yet? Aromas of pear and lime with a fascinating smoky note. Soft, ripe fruit with a fresh feel in the mouth and a very tasty herb character.
A blend of Nielluccio (the island’s clone of Sangiovese), Grenache, a more recent import, Syrah, another newer arrival, and Sciacarello, a native Corsican variety that may be the source of the island’s most distinct wine. A rustic but pleasing red that has bright notes of cherry fruit and a earthy finish.
$20 per person - for food and wine!
Wine and Corsica
Since the arrival of the Phoenicians around 570 B.C., Corsica has produced a lot of wine in steep, coastal terrain. Production increased after 1950 when the Pieds-Noirs, ethnically French emigrants fleeing unrest in Algeria, arrived to plant vineyards. Until recently most Corsican wine stayed on the island. We are lucky to now be able to enjoy these wines here in the States. Thanks in no small part to Kermit Lynch Imports.
Adam Zuckert from Kermit Lynch will be behind the bar pouring, answering questions and will have some bonus Corsican wines to sample!
