A very Happy 😃 Keeper #Chef prepping dinner with fresh from garden #squashblossom for stuffing and orange and yellow squash grated into balls and to be made into #squash gratin. Keep an eye 👁 out as we unveil more of the ingredients going into Sunday dinner and of course the wines to be paired with it #sommchat

What would we pair with one of our favorite fish #kinmedai prepared in the #Chef @ericripert @lebernardinny way? We have been fortunate to enjoy the #wines of @domaine.pavelot.jmh for many years. Thanks to @jwallacepdt we were recently introduced to this bottling of #aloxecorton and the #wine and the pairing were delightful. #wantmore Who says you can’t drink 🍷 with #fish???? #sommchat

It was time to get some exercise after enjoying Keeper Kitchen #wine and #food pairings the past few days, so Sunday as we enjoyed a clear day morning walk in 70 degree weather in #billingsmontana we passed this lovely bit of #nature -can any of our Keeper Community share what this flower is called? How long does it typically last once it has bloomed? What climates does it grow best in? Hope your day is brightened with some lovely bits of nature🌺🌿🥀🍃🌲🌼🌻🎄🍀

New Keeper Chef trial dish in #Montana that is easy and a Keeper! Step 1: Went to support fav local Butcher in Billings @ranch_house_meats and bought Asian (precut) marinated strip steak (of course local grass fed meat!) Marinade definitely had some good heat but not too much. Step 2: Went to local grocery (FM not open yet!) got bok choy 🥬 onions 🧅 3 different color bell peppers and used extra long broccoli stems to make the stir fry. Step 3: Stir Fried in non-stick skillet and then paired with a lovely #wine. This was our first time to pair Loire Valley Red with Asian Stir Fry and the 2015 @domaineguiberteau was a real Winner! Can’t wait to hear if you try this and what wine you pair with it!! #SommChat

SORRY NO MASK, NO SERVICE! We had an interesting visitor to the Keeper Team recently with the nicest compliments about our wine and food adventures and if we would share some of our knowledge. Normally, as our Keeper Community knows, we welcome questions and interaction. But as you can see in the video, the visitor did not honor our current important rule of NO MASK, NO SERVICE during these times. We invited the visitor to follow us on social media @KeeperColl and post questions there, just like we do for all of you! Stay safe and wear your masks for everyone’s safety.

We love the #wines of @domaine_jeannoel_gagnard ❤️. Many of you may recognize the producer for the great #chassagnemontrachet white wines they produce. We were so glad that we had cellared this 2009 red #burgundy 🍷 as it was sublime and paired beautifully with the #Montana beluga #lentils. Hope you get a chance to try the wines by #winemaker Caroline Lestime and enjoy them as much as we do. #Sommchat

Yes we love #popcorn with #champagne. Since we knew we loved #dujacwines and we knew we loved popcorn 🍿 why not splurge and try them together ?@dianasnowsey and @drinkdujac this was such a decadent treat and one we will not forget. Thanks for making such beautiful #wines for us to enjoy in so many ways. #sommchat

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
