Summer in France Wine Dinner

Thursday June 21st 2018

6.45pm Reception 7pm Dinner

Greetings from Cobalt Grille,
This month we venture to France! Perhaps no country evokes such strong associations with fine wine as does France. Its reputation has led to worldwide imitation. France has been making wine since approximately 600 BC, and was its largest producer until it was passed by Italy in 2008.  With over 800,000 hectares under vine, it has the largest vineyard area in the world after Spain. It is, however, the world’s largest producer of fine wines. One advantage France has over other wine-producing countries is the great variety of growing climates it encompasses. Its south has a Mediterranean climate, with a warm sun that can be relied on to fully ripen grapes. Western France, which includes the Loire Valley, enjoys the mellowing influence of the Gulf Stream. In eastern France, the climate is more continental, giving us the great wine-producing regions of Burgundy, Champagne, and Alsace. So please join Chef Alvin Williams, Sommelier Arden Allen alongside Alex Carr and Megan Jones of the Robins Cellars for this delicious 6 course food & wine pairing.
