Margrit Mondavi’s pearls of wisdom continue to ring through our ears.
This amazing lady at 86, wife of the late California wine pioneer Robert Mondavi is still very much involved in the Napa winery. Her philosophy and advice….. “Look into each others’ eyes when you toast with wine, or you will have seven years of bad sex.” Good advice for sure.
The Wine Ladies recently attended a fabulous night at the newly opened Modus Restaurant, 145 King Street West, Toronto for the dedication of the Robert Mondavi room.
A spectacular structured tasting led by the charming and witty Master of Wine, Mark de Vere of 5 stunning Mondavi wines were all paired with mouth-watering creations created by head chef Bruce Woods.
The Wine Ladies with Mark de Vere, Modus Restaurant,Toronto
The evening was marked by a generous donation to the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra on behalf of Mondavi wines by the very special guest Margrit Mondavi, A very special lady indeed who’s humour was most evident throughout the night.”There are more old winemakers, than old doctors!”A very special thrill to meet this lovely lady.
The fabulous line up of wine included; the Fume Blanc Reserve 2009 paired with pan roasted diver scallop, cauliflower puree with pepperonata, the Chardonnay Reserve 2008 with Foie gras, chestnut and sweet potato ravioli, porcini truffle cream sauce, Pinot Noir Reserve 2009 with duck prosciutto, fig chutney with caramelized onion port reduction, the Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 served with roasted venison loin, smoked bacon jus and sour cherries and finally the Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2008 with house made cocoa cavatelli pasta with braised oxtail.
We can’t agree more with Margrit after all, she described the Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2008, “with the tenderness of a babies bottom and the power of Pavarotti!” Simply wonderful, we are now huge fans of the wine and this grand lady indeed.
