Do you like to drink @loirevalleywine #Sancerrre with red meat dishes? Have you had #wines from the Clos de Beaujeu vineyard? Here is a recap of a recent trial with this for our Keeper #sommchat community. Wine 2005 Gerard Boulay Sancerre Clos de Beaujeu Grape Sancerre Vintage 2005, highly regarded in Loire (17 years old) Producer Gérard Boulay Vineyard Clos de Beaujeu, a famous vineyard that was mapped out by monks in the Middle Ages in the village of Chavignol. The old vines on this small plot of land produce what is considered some of the most nuanced sauvignon blanc in the world. Pairing (1st time for this pairing with Sancerre) Montana Grass-Fed Beef Tri Tip Veggie Stir Fry - EXCELLENT pairing

#burgundy #wines filled this #valentinesday with even more #love ♥️♥️🍷🍷 The 2011 @domaine_michel_lafarge #volnay was sublime and drinking beautifully and the 2009 @domaine_jeannoel_gagnard #chaumees1ercru was absolutely perfect in every way with layers upon layers of goodness. HIGHLY RECOMMEND BOTH #sommchat

Lunch splurge treasures 🎆🎆 - such a treat - @franklinbbq #brisket #tacos with a fav bottle of #burgundy @drinkdujac @dianasnowsey #dujac #wine #moreysaintdenis. Very thankful for this time to enjoy. #sommchat

A @pelicanhillresort SUNSET over the #pacificocean paired with a lovely #burgundy makes for a perfect Pre-dinner combination - loving the 2014 @domainelarue white vintage #wines and thanks to @rootstockwinesatx for introducing us to the domaine #sommchat

#wine CONFIRMATION- @marchand_tawse 🍷#burgundy pairs beautifully with #salmon #sommchat thanks @ianmccaff and @rootstockwinesatx for sharing this #gevreychambertin beauty and thanks @pascal_marchand21 for the creation.

New #wine and #food pairing - don’t forget to try pairing #fish with a really good red wine -here we tried #salmon with fresh tomato vinaigrette and a fav #barbaresco producer @cascinadellerose -the #barberadalba was outstanding with the dish -thanks @sobri_cdr and @davidesobrino for your #wines #sommchat

When Keeper #Chef prepares @ericripert inspired #japanese Warm #Scallops with #Yuzi Rice and Toasted #Nori Dashi the immediate pairing inspiration was Kubota Manjyu Junmai DaiGinjo thanks to @genjisake and @mutualtrading #sommchat sure can’t wait to have this dish again with more #sake

To drink the #wines of a #winery with the #winemakers and eat #food prepared by the #chefs for the #wine is so lovely and tonight with @gdangerville & @rajatparr provided us with added knowledge not to mention just pure pleasure thanks to all who made this happen in #austintexas #sommchat

Love when we #travel and find a bar that makes their #cocktails with @taittingerusa #champagne if you find yourself in #Frankfurt #germany🇩🇪 check out John F Kennedy Bar @villakennedy1901 and ask for the JFK 🍾#cocktail #sommchat

Thanks to @vomboden for another chance to learn about #German #wine and this time we had the pleasure to learn about @julian.haart #wines. Nadine Haart is a wealth of knowledge and shared much about the intensity with which she and Julian approach their #winemaking and attention to every detail in the vineyards and in the cellar. This is a small estate of 5 HA so keep your eyes searching to find these #wines if possible. #sommchat

When you drive after an early dinner towards your room on the #Mosel river in #bernkastelkues #travels to #germany🇩🇪 #wine region become magical. You feel as if time has stopped and you are floating in total peace over the water and through the mountains 🏔.

What a delightful afternoon for some #wine education @j._b._becker in the #Rheingau thanks to @vomboden we got to see #vineyard management, a cellar visit, and of course taste the wines. We can’t wait to try the #trocken #wines with #japanese dishes as was recommended. #Sommchat

For all those #Sommeliers that are studying and those #wine enthusiasts that just love trivia - here we go with a clue from #heidelberg #germany🇩🇪 : Q. Where is the largest wooden wine Barrel ever to be made, when was it built, and what is its capacity? A. In the cellar of @heidelberg_castle , there stands a large wooden barrel with a capacity of 220,000 liters (58,000 gallons) which was built in 1751. This was built by the King and put in the kitchen of the castle to entertain and impress his guests. The only problem: It leaked! Well at least it shows the presence of the wine culture in the area in that time period. #sommchat #travelforwine

Important lesson learned in southern #Corsica while at lunch @hotelgoeland in #portovecchio: don’t worry if the sky is overcast and it is raining like in the pic in the upper left hand corner because in Southern Corsica 5 minutes later your view will change and the sun ☀️ will shine and the #mediterraneansea water will be clear and blue again like in the other 3 pictures #travelislife

In Old Town #bonifacio #corsica you can find a family restaurant called Stella D’Oro “Chez Jules” established in 1965. Upper left hand pic is a local dish called Aubergines Bonifacienne by some. It is a very traditional dish and this one has now become our ‘best ever’ Eggplant Parmesan which paired beautifully with Canerelli Rose. The bottom left is a fresh local area John Dory fish with olive oil, lemon butter parsley sauce along with sides of potatoes tomatoes and onions. What a lovely lunch in the old town. #sommchat

What is the first thing you should do after #flying into the #Ajaccio airport in #Corsica??? Find the closest seaside restaurant (la table du marche at hotel les Mouettes was a good choice) with the table closest to the water and order a bottle of Clos Canarelli Blanc - #lifeisgood❤️ thanks @ianmccaff @rootstockwinesatx and @lylerailsback @kermitlynchwine for introducing us to this #winery. Stay tuned to learn more about these #wines when we visit and taste their this coming week. #sommchat

What a lovely surprise to have some #burgundy tastings with @yannickbenjamin and @heiditurzyn and then to share a magnum of @domaine_michel_lafarge Rose 2017 in #Bouilland with the @beckywasserman.co team. From the first tasting together @benjaminlerouxwines to dinner last night each moment was a treat. Also a shout out to @elizabeth.gabaymw on the rose for her book! #Sommchat

Always great to see @nico_rossignol while in #burgundy to hear about all he is doing in the vineyard and cellar to make his #burgundy #wines. #Sommchat #domainenicolasrossignol
