Recipe of the Month- Braised Chicken with Mustard and Mushrooms

Thursday, January 1

When winter sets in, nothing is more comforting than a wonderful braised dish.  Mushrooms, shallots and tarragon are the base flavors for this easy meal.  We recommend serving either 2013 Marcel Lapierre Morgon from Beaujolais, France or Ken Forrester 2013 Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc from Stellenbosch South Africa.

Languedoc has become one of France’s most dynamic wine regions with adventurous wine producers redefining traditions and creating some of the country’s most exciting wines.

Domaine Paul Mas is on the creative cutting-edge of extraordinarily, high-quality wines that remain affordably priced. Wines that if they came from somewhere else in the world, would cost much more!

Getting to Know the Rhone Valley; North and South

Saturday, January 17, 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

France's Rhône Valley is divided into two parts. The northern Rhône is home to dark, powerful, spicy reds made with the Syrah grape. The warmer southern Rhône grows some Syrah, but its signature red wines—softer and riper—are blends, typically with Grenache and Mourvedre.

We’ll have one of our favorite importers on hand to introduce some new wines and vintages that represent some of the best values in premium reds from both the North and the South of one of France’s most prolific wine producing regions; the Rhone Valley.
