Tour de France Food and Wine Pairing at ELY WINE BAR with Charles Derain

France may be the most famous wine producing country in the world, but it still has some well-kept secrets – regions and varieties yet to reach the fame of Bordeaux or Burgundy, Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir. For this very special tasting we’ll focus on some of the lesser known but hugely exciting mountain regions which are making some of our favourite wines in all of France. We’ll taste varieties such as Savagnin, Mondeuse & Trousseau, from Jura, Savoie and the Jurancon. To guide us on this wine adventure we’ve recruited the French-est man we know, Charles Derain. Sommelier, Importer and Wine Maker he is equal parts encyclopaedic wine knowledge and cheeky Gallic charm, the perfect person to introduce these fascinating wines. The wines will be paired with some of our classic wine bar dishes and superb French cheese.
