Join us on National Rosé Day and taste this delectable, all natural French Ham paired with beautiful wines from the South of France for this special VIP event. Produced in France for over 1000 years, Jambon de Bayonne is the original French Dry Cured Ham. Cured for at least 12 months, the high quality is controlled by the Protected Geographical Indication, ensuring that Bayonne is an exceptional product of origin, from the Basque Country in South-West France. All natural, tender and delicate, this ham is made of only two ingredients: Pork, from Local, sustainably-raised Pigs, and Rock Salt, specifically from a spring under the Pyrenees Mountains in Salies-de-Bearn. Made by the famous house of Jambon, DELPEYRAT, founded in 1890, this fine ham is the perfect partner to French cheeses and wines for appetizers, lunch or snacking. A beautiful alternative to other cured hams, Bayonne has a firmer texture than Prosciutto from Italy, and is not as gamey as Serrano Ham, which is from a warmer region. Our VIP guest is an expert in all things 'Bayonne', we welcome Fleurine Barriol, the Delpeyrat Brand Ambassador for USA.
We are also happy to welcome Austin Corso, our wine tasting specialist, to take us through a tasting of Grenache-based wines including Saleya Dry Rosé from Provence, La Vieille Ferme Réserve Rosé Brut sparkling, and sulfite-free Domaine Des Carabiniers Côtes-du-Rhône Red.
Delpeyrat Bayonne Ham is Free from Nitrates, Free from Preservatives, Gluten-Free and GMO-Free
The newest addition to our amazing selection of dry Rosé wines, Maison Saleya is named for the 'Cours Saleya', a famous flower market in Nice, on the shores of the Mediterranean. Crafted from grapes grown in France’s sunny Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence, this is dry, crisp and mouthwatering with nuances of plums, berries, pink grapefruit, flowers and salty stones. The unique terroir of Provence features abundant sunshine that is moderated by its famous Mistral winds. Prime plots supply grapes of good maturity and low yield, and the granitic, schisty soil and proximity to the ocean impart great character to the fruit. Grenache lends subtle red fruit, fullness and intensity while Cinsault contributes freshness and balance to the blend. Serve as an aperitif between friends, to enhance a Provençal recipe, or with other worldly cuisines... Provence Rosé wines are known for their conviviality and freshness… everywhere they go, they're always right at home! Fire up the Grill!!
La Vieille Ferme Réserve Rosé Brut is designed to share your celebration in elegance and simplicity. Whether served as an aperitif with friends or at a lavish banquet, this wine will help you enjoy the memorable moment, bringing conviviality and liberty.
Delicate peach core with seductive raspberry hints and fine exquisite bubbles. A first nose of fresh red fruit (raspberry, wild strawberry), giving way to a perfect balance between freshness, acidity and roundness.
Food Pairing: Pair with fresh sweet or savory appetizers. Versatile, it can accompany smoked fish appetizers just as well as fruit-based deserts, La Vieille Ferme Réserve Rosé Brut is to be served "without restrictions" and during any and all celebrations.
The Leperchois family arrived in France in 1920 as Italian immigrants with a passion for winemaking. The fourth generation of the family, brother and sister Fabien and Magali now manage the estate. Christian started to work with organic farming early on, and obtained ecocert certification in 1997. When Fabien joined the winery he converted into biodynamic and obtained demeter certification in 2009.
Their terroirs have been chemical-free for a long time now, to the joy of the winemakers, the environment, the grapes and of course, the clients. This delightful Cotes-du-Rhone is made of 50% Grenache and 50% Syrah, fermented in concrete with natural yeasts and NO SULFITES ADDED. The vines are planted in clay, sand and pebble soils. Certified Demeter, meaning this is Biodynamic, and the wine is vegan as well...you're welcome:)
