Complimentary Fine Wine Tasting @ Savour Wine & Cheese
February 5 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join Savour Wine and Cheese for their first February complimentary wine tasting featuring selections from the acclaimed Carolina Wines Connoisseur Portfolio, wines matched to the cuisine of the season, hearty fare. Their tasting travels from France’s Southern Rhone Valley to California, Washington Street onto Oceania and New Zealand, and the singular story of the McBride Sisters.
WHAT & WHY: A special story celebrating Black History Month, two sisters and the grape. Raised among the vines of Monterey, California and Marlborough, New Zealand, one could say that the McBride Sisters’ path to winemaking was destiny at work. Beginning in the present, the McBride Sisters, Robin and Andrea, own the largest African-American wine company in the United States and remarkably it all started with two half-sisters who didn’t know that the other existed for half of their lives.
When they finally met, they realized that they had both been raised among vines some 7,000 miles apart – one in New Zealand the other in central California. Fate brought them together and today the McBride Sisters have one of the industry’s most exciting companies. Do join us today to sample their energetic and fragrant Sauvignon Blanc showing the more tropical side of the Marlborough flavor spectrum while focusing acidity brings the refreshment factor… a wine that brightens up winter fare!
Food Pairing: Prosciutto Wrapped Blanched Asparagus.
