Sud de France Festival – New York City

Have you heard of this incredible food and wine festival happening in NYC next week? Sud De France is an organization created by the region’s government in 2006. Its aim is to support and encourage international exchange with businesses in the Languedoc-Roussillon region, and to promote the region’s history, heritage, gastronomy and culture both at home and abroad. Since not everyone can make it to this beautiful region of France, they are bringing it to you with the Sud De France Festival, beginning on June 9. For three weeks attendees can try mouth-watering versions of staples like cassoulet, bourride sétoise, cod brandade, and more, all paired with wines from the region. For a complete list of events and participating stores as well as information on how to purchase tickets, please visit their website: suddefrancefestival.com Camille Becerra, executive chef of Navy, the new restaurant and raw bar in SoHo.

Generous Pour Wine Event at The Captial Grille

With locations around the country, the Capital Grille is a restaurant you know you can walk into in any city and be treated with amazing service and have a damn fine steak too. Now, through September 4th, The Capital Grille has their Generous Pour Wine Event going on. The Generous Pour Wine event offers guests the chance to taste nine varietals ranging from bubbly to full-bodied reds to a Port. These wines are selected by Master Sommelier, George Miliotes - Twitter @TheWineExpert - Tweet him, he'll tweet you back! He even hosted a live webcast during our preview wine tasting where we were able to tweet to him and ask questions. Ample servings of nine rare and limited vintage varietals – all for just $25 per person (with dinner entree purchase) from July 12 through September 4. The collection includes wines from all over - Spain, California, Australia and Italy. So no region is excluded. Guests are able to try wines that would normally be out of price range like the Freemark Abbey, Cabernet Bosche, 2003 which is about $250 a bottle. Everyone at the Capital Grille is friendly and helpful and not snooty at all even if you are a non-oenophile. Read More
