Get street wise with Bordeaux & Bordeaux Supérieur this September
Bordeaux & Bordeaux Supérieur are teaming up with some of the UK’s top street food chefs this September for two tutored tasting events led by Jane Parkinson, matching award-winning Bordeaux Blanc wines with uber fresh fish and seafood.
The first tasting aimed at wine writers and educators takes place at trendy wine shop/bar, Vagabond on Charlotte Street in central London on Wednesday 2 September. Running from 12 noon to 3pm, the event will feature a tutored food and wine pairing session from 12 noon to 1pm, led by star of BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen and member of the Wine Gang, Jane Parkinson. Outside of the guided tasting, there will also be a larger self-pour tasting of Bordeaux & Bordeaux Supérieur that have won medals in this year’s major wine competitions. Places for the food and wine matching are limited, and guests will also just be able to attend the larger self-pour tasting if they prefer or are short on time to get a snapshot of the very best of current Bordeaux Blanc.
The second event is for the rising stars of the on-trade as well as wine writers, as Bordeaux & Bordeaux Supérieur teams up with the Hospitality Guild for a second tutored tasting of award winning wines from the region and fish-based street food led once again by wine critic, Jane Parkinson.
Taking place on Monday 29 September at the Guild’s start of the art HQ in East Finchley, north London, this event aims to educate the Guild’s members, especially students in London’s leading catering colleges, about the Bordeaux Blanc blend in particular and to present them with some contemporary and relevant ways to serve the wines with food. The event will also be webcast to all Guild members who can tune in to the event interactively, and Jane will be hosting a Q&A afterwards on Twitter.
These food friendly tastings form part of Bordeaux and Bordeaux Supérieur AOC’s new UK promotional campaign to raise awareness of Bordeaux Blanc in particular showcasing a variety of styles, demonstrating the quality and value for money now on offer, and providing some more up to date and relevant food pairings with bang on trend freshly cooked fish and seafood based street food, to show that these wines do have a place in a younger wine drinker’s repertoire.
Marc Medeville, Vice President of the Syndicat Viticole des Bordeaux et Bordeaux Supérieur says, “The investment in Bordeaux and Bordeaux Supérieur over the last decade has had a marked effect on quality, and we are now producing fantastic wines that offer great value for money.” He continues, “Bordeaux Blanc comes in a range of styles, and is a very food friendly wine, perfect with a range of flavours and casual eating out occasions that are now so popular. We invite you to come and taste for yourself”
