Which wines pair well with BC's Bounty?
Our second session with Vancouver Magazine's 2020 Sommelier of the Year, Robert Stelmachuck is happening on Zoom May 19th at 7:30 pm. It's promising to be a tasty night of eye opening wine and food pairings garnished with excitement, stories and laughs.
If you missed DimSomm, we are sorry. You missed some great wine chatter and sips, a couple moments of hysterical laughter and some awesome inspiration connected to sticky rice, scallop scallion dumplings, har gow, sui mai and chicken feet.
It was pure pleasure as I also opened a bottle of South African Natte Velleji 2018 Cinsault. Mind expanding fantastic wine! If you are in Greater Vancouver, you can find it at Everything Wine, Liberty Wine Merchants and Marquis Wine Cellars. If you did not catch the previous post, here is the link.
But that is not why you are here, right? You are here because it's time to prepare for #seasomm. Or as I like to call it - my date night with RS (and I don't mean residual sugar). Who wouldn't go on a date night with someone who cleans up this good?
Wine Recommendations & Take Out Suggestions
To be honest, I eat very little seafood. What's on the menu, Robert? Regardless of our tastes, here is the wine list. These six (6) bottles are available at Marquis Wine Cellars. Grab a bottle, or as many as you like, off this list from Marquis Wine Cellars and use the wine code (RobertWine101) to receive 10% off your entire wine purchase Deal of the decade, winelovers!
