Big news: Italian wines and collab w/ Elysia

Published the Apr 12 2018 in "News & Events"

For those who follow us on Social media, we already made some announcements a few weeks ago about a tasty and unexpected surprise we had for you…  

 

Today is the day to let you know that our Italian wines are finally here and ready for Spring! #italianwinelover  

We received 18 new wines directly coming from the region of Friuli in the North East of Italy.  

And the best part is: we decided to make a collaboration with Elysia catering to celebrate those latest arrivals. But also, our latest creations for Spring season: the One to Wine Cocktails! 

 

After some researches and meetings with Sophie and Anya from Elysia, we choose which of our specialties will perfectly match with each other.  

 

 

We first think about the red wine Giovanni Drì Monte Dei Carpini Schioppettino DOC Collio Orientali Friuli 2015 paired with a gougère topped with a colorful herby hummus.  

The various aromas of dark fruits and chocolate with a hint of wood coming from a light oak aging are showing first. Once you get it, the perfect balance takes place between fresh fruits, gourmet chocolate, and nutty notes…  A true delight with the gougère pastry of Elysia. It’s definitely a great couple! 

Secondly, we choose the Bidoli Friulano Friuli DOC Grave 2017. This is one of our favorites! Made from the very rare grape Friulano, this wine is produced in the North East of Italy. This wine has been selected for its great freshness, a good acidity and a light bouquet of flowers and citric fruits makes it perfect for picnic time in Summer season.  

Our final choice has been logical: Kurtin Opera Prima IGP Delle Venezie 2016. The winemaker blends this white wine with a selection of Pinot BiancoRibolla Gialla, and Chardonnay. The particularity of this blend comes from a long-maceration, the altitude of the vines and the sunny region of origin. It guarantees to the wine an opulent taste and a rich and complex bouquet of various exotic and stone fruits, olives and acacia flower.

 And you know what? You can pair those aromas perfectly with food, especially gougères pastries. Lucky you are!
