Pairing up the Wines

Richard Harvey of Calgary’s Metrovino wine store has made the wine pairings for  Saturday’s Feast.

Finding a particular wine with complementary aromas, flavours and textures to match the food being served is an art and for some, a lifelong study. The wine pairings will add a special touch to the evening.

Here are Richard’s selections for the Feast menu.

With the Salad
Jané  Ventura Blanc Selecció “15 vinyes” 2011
Penedes, Spain

With the Meat Course
Bon Cap Syrah / Cabernet Sauvignon “The Ruins” 2011
Robertson, South Africa

With the Entree
Santa Duc Grenache / Syrah / Merlot “Les Plans” 2010
Rhône Valley, France

With the Dessert
Domaine de la Minotière Cidre Fermier Brut
Normandy, France

Richard will also be at the Feast to tell us more about the wines he’s chosen.

Wine will be available for sale by the glass or the bottle. Cash only, please. (Sorry, no credit cards.) All bottles are $30. By the 4 oz glass, $5.

See you soon! 🙂


What’s Cookin’ at The Feast?

Delicious. Fresh. Local. When it comes to food, it don’t get much better than this.

Bergen-area farmers and ranchers are supplying an array of foods for the Feast — vegetables, beef, lamb, cheese, honey and … well, if you’d like to know more, take a peek at the menu. 🙂

If you’d care to enjoy wine with your dinner, Richard Harvey of Metrovino will be doing the wine pairings. The wines will be available for purchase.

P.S. Are you planning to join us for the Feast? Don’t wait too long to reserve your spot. More than 50 of the 80 tickets have already been sold.


Bergen Makes the Calgary Herald

It’s not everyday our small rural community makes the pages of any newspaper, let alone the Calgary Herald. Many thanks to journalist Karen Anderson for the great write-up about our Farmers’ Market and the upcoming Feast of Bergen.
