What goes best with Beaujolais wine? A Film Festival!
While I cannot ever claim to be an expert in wines, I do know that my husband rarely turns down a glass of RED. At the Brooklyn Film Festival opening night party, Dan and I both had the chance to check out the wines from Beaujolais, a region in France that is little known for wine production.
Most wine experts can tell you a great deal about pairings:
- Which wine goes best with which food dish?
- White with fish?
- Red with meat?
Dan will tell you that red wine is good with everything, plus its great for health reasons….or maybe he just likes the buzz he gets. Either way, he gave Beaujolais wines a big bottom’s up.
DiscoverBeaujolais.com has a new campaign that encourages people to find the perfect type of wine for them. Each of the different wine terroirs are represented by a different “type” of person.
Since I don’t really like to follow the rules, I just know that I prefer white wine. It’s usually “fruit-ier”.
What I do know, is that a Film Festival and a Wine Company do make for a great pairing.
Facts from Beaujolais website:
Beaujolais is one of the oldest wine regions in the world, producing versatile, expertly crafted wines by dedicated winemakers for over 2,000 years. The region produces white wines, rosés and light red wines which are a refreshing alternative to heavy reds. Beaujolais wines are known for having the unique ability to be chilled. Because of their bright acidity, juicy berry aromas and soft tannins, Beaujolais wines pair well with a very wide spectrum of foods:
- Grilled or roasted chicken
- Pork chops
- Grilled fish
- Roasted turkey
- Various cheeses
- Berry desserts
We were grateful for the opportunity to attend the Brooklyn Film Festival opening night film and screening at the Wythe Hotel.
