Retailers can claim £250 towards Bordeaux Dinners

10 May, 2011

Independent wine merchants are being encouraged to team up with local restaurants to host a Bordeaux Dinner – and will receive £250 to help plan and run the event.

The Bordeaux Wine Council (CIVB) is repeating last year’s Bordeaux Dinners initiative and will supply publicity material as well as the cash contribution to participating retailers.

The menu must be matched with at least four Bordeaux wines listed by the independent.

Douglas Morton of the CIVB said: “For generations Bordeaux has been making food-friendly wines. The overall style, diversity and range of flavours produced in the region result in wines that complement rather than overpower food. So we have developed a promotion that helps to prove that good food would choose Bordeaux.”

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
