One of the best ways to experience different styles of wines is to visit one of the many Wine Bars to be found in Calgary.
Last night my daughter took me out to the Vin Room on 4th Street SW. They had an excellent Portuguese Douro – now I’m inspired to make a few extra for myself from this years Limited Editions. It is a very rich, lush wine. Another great red was an Argentine Malbec blend from the Mendoza Province, which is where we source our Selection Argentine Malbec from.
My daughter found a classic Gruner Veltliner, another one of our Limited Editions – very complex, with mineral characteristics. It was just excellent with the cheese and eggplant chips we ordered as a food pairing with the wine.
If you are unsure of the tapas that will pair well, you will almost always find that the staff can make good suggestions.
Enjoy the wine! Enjoy the food! Enjoy the company! Disfrutar del vino! Disfrutar de la comida! Disfrutar de la compania!
