Spring Wines and Dinner for One

Tariquet Classic Côtes de Gascogne

With weather like we are having today

my daydreams drift off to spring wine. One of our favorite regions for bright fun wines for spring is the “Sud-Oeust” a beautiful region is south west France.

Here is one you’ll love by environmentally conscious Domain Du Tariquet from the region called Côtes de Gascogne!

Diana was out for the evening at a meeting in New York City so I decided to make myself a nice dinner for one and try this wine.

We have all ways loved wine from the south of France great regions like Languedoc-Roussillon and Provance, but new little about a lesser know area called the  Sud-Oeust.  A fabulous tasting presented at FI:AF by the entertaining and engaging Pascaline Lepeltier, Wine Director at Rouge Tomate, enlightened us, Vive Le Sud-Ouest
