This coming Tuesday March 12th, Vermont Wine Merchants, in collaboration with Kismet restaurant, are hosting a unique event, showcasing the organic and/or biodynamic wines of Roche-meré.
The two part event begins with a free and open-to-the-public tasting from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., to be followed by a reservation only wine dinner at 6:30 pm.
That evening, Chef-Owner Crystal Maderia will present a five-course prix-fixe menu that both incorporates and is paired with choice wines, hand-selected by Roche-meré. Maderia’s unique approach is inspired by the intention to highlight the absolute enjoyment of each individual wine through both a culinary perspective and a casual dining experience.
Both the daytime tasting and the pairing dinner will specifically showcase the organic and/or biodynamic wines of Roche-meré Wine Selections. Roche-meré is an importer/distributer based out of Bordeaux, France, owned and run by Theo Mellion and Michael Affato, collectively boasting over 20 years of experience. Roche-meré hand-selects and imports deep, complex reds and whites that express specific typicity and origin, which stimulate the intellect of the experienced wine collector, but also give less experienced wine lovers wonderful discoveries, creating new-found passions.
Vermont Wine Merchants is the sole Vermont distributer of Roche-meré Wine Selections, and will be co-hosting this event.
Kismet is a unique ‘Farm-to-Table’ dining & flavor experience, founded in 2006, expanding to its current location in downtown Montpelier in 2010.
