Food and Wine Pairing with Acquiesce Wines + Gift Package
Please join me, Susan Tipton, winemaker of Acquiesce Winery and Susan Manfull, Editor of Provence WineZine, for our second virtual cooking, wine pairing, and wine education class.
Bonus Wine Gift Package
Perfectly Provence has partnered with Acquiesce Winery on a wine gift package for this event – Cook, Drink, & Learn 2.
To enter the contest, leave a comment below this post before January 30th at 18:00 (Pacific time). The winner will be selected via a random draw from eligible names and enjoy a gift package, including:
2018 Sparkling Grenache Blanc
2019 Grenache Blanc
2019 Grenache Rosé
Saturday, February 6th at 1:00 PM (PST), 4:oo PM (EST).
I will begin with a cooking demonstration of Feuilletés aux Champignons Sauvages (velvety mushrooms sautéed in tarragon and cream, nestled in puff pastry). Following that, I will share the secret behind making a traditional French cheese souflée and a tempting Angel Food Cake.
Sue Tipton will be tasting through three of her award-winning Grenache wines. Editor Susan Manfull will provide historical and pertinent information regarding the Grenache varietals and how they are interpreted at Acquiesce, along with posing questions and taking some of yours. I have now tasted and paired all three wines, and you will receive three recipe cards – one to go with each wine.
The event is hosted on an interactive virtual platform, sign-up for the event here. The event costs $99, including three (3) bottles from the Acquiesce Grenache selection (shipping in the United States). Acquiesce Club members save an additional 20% on the bottles. If you live outside of the U.S.A, sign-up for the class and learn about the wines.
