Winemakers Dinner. Vivre à Bordeaux! Et Plus! Presented by The Wine Ladies, Château Larose Trintaudon and Noble Bistro.
This is a global show with a Canadian local flare!
Bordeaux still until today defines the finest red wine in the world and for many winemakers whether in California, Italy or Spain in the old world or Chile, Argentina or California in the new, it is the benchmark. World renown is the famous 1855 Classification where upon the Emperor Napoleon the 3rd, wanted to display the best wines of Bordeaux at the Universelle de Paris Exposition, or The World’s Fair in today’s terms and so requested of the Bordeaux brokers to make a list of the highest quality properties.
From this, the 1855 Classification remains today with just a few changes, famous names Château Lafite, Château Latour, Château Margaux, Haut Brion and Château Mouton Rothschild are recognized around the globe. But what of the many other incredible wineries, Bordeaux is a large wine region, with so much to offer, with many wineries that produce delectable, elegant powerful superb wines and at great value?
So on this show we introduce you to one such winery, located on the left bank in the Medoc, with the largest vineyard and largest producer of wine in this region, this brand, a beautiful award winning wine, is Château Larose Trintaudon which we will explore with our first guest.

Moroccan-Canadian Kaoutsar “Katsy” Entifi from RepChampion Canada
Macarons have been all rage in last couple of years! The rise of macaron dates as far back as the Revolutionary France during the 1700s. Legend has it that French nuns baked and sold these during difficult times to help them pay for day-to-day essentials. It’s also believed that macarons had a much more humble beginning, having started out with no filings or the array of unique flavours that we’ve come to associate them with. We’ve all tasted the notoriously sweet and airy macarons that come in the usual flavours of chocolate, strawberry, coffee, and lemon. But today is different- today we get introduced to the beauty of savoury macarons, orange & cumin, goat cheese and figs and onions, olive tapenade, Porcini mushrooms to name a few.
And who better to discuss the lesser-known French treat than Moroccan-Canadian Kaoutsar “Katsy” Entifi from RepChampion Canada. Katsy imports only the most delicious, difficult-to-acquire goods from France Originelle, and is making the Greater Toronto Area the latest new home for savoury macarons.
These aren’t your run-of-the-mill macarons. France Originelle’s goods are hand-made in France and are only made using the highest quality, freshest ingredients. You can taste the French pride in these macarons, and it’s no wonder why they’re used in many of France’s most prestigious sporting events. Their gourmet savoury macarons have even won Le Trophée de la Gastronomy, one of France’s highest distinctions.
We explore the pairing of wine with the macarons and more. What a unique and interesting spin! These macarons are available to purchase on line and make a beautiful gift too.

Et Plus!
I’d like to wish you a Happy New Year. Thank you for spreading the joy of wine throughout the year! Once again as we head into 2017 I have a question for you. How do we lose the extra five pounds we have been gifted and still enjoy an occasional glass of wine? Which wines are the least caloric?
Happy New Year to you as well and we must confess, we too have been similarly gifted! Here’s the good news, if it is only an occasional glass of wine, and time is not of the essence, the additional 100-125 calories/ 5 ounce glass shouldn’t impede your progress too badly. In fact, there are many diets out there that actually allow for an occasional glass or two such as Weight Watchers and L.A. Weight Loss. Even the popular ketogenic diet has a place for vino says Dr. Dominic D’Agostino of Keto//OS. In fact there is one company, Dry Farm Wines, deemed “ketogenic friendly” that we are looking at bringing in, so keep an eye out for that.
We would order cialis from uk like to offer a word of caution though, if you are anything like us, we tend to bring out the assortment of cheeses, dried fruit and nuts to accompany our wine. This behavior is definitely better reserved for post diet times.
In fact, studies show that total consumption of calories tends to go up when an aperitif or two precedes or accompanies the meal.
Finally we are often asked if the driest wines are the least caloric. Actually the ideal choice is to select wines that are both dry and lower in alcohol. Percentage alcohol is definitely a determining factor when it comes to caloric content. Opt for wines that come from cooler climates such as Germany, Austria, New Zealand and Ontario to name a few. Cooler climate regions tend to produce lower alcohol wines that are 12% or 12.5% , and Germany has one as low as 9%.

WE’D LIKE TO WISH EVERYONE A HEALTHY AND HAPPY 2017!
