I am forever being asked about Food Pairing and what wine goes well with this or that dish.
I have had many frantic last minute texts from people in the wine store staring, like deer in headlights, at the rows of bottles trying to find something to go with a certain dish.
This week I took an hour drive Northeast from our house in the Pyrénéan foothills to the beautiful Gers region of Southwest France. The Gers is a beautiful, lush and vibrant farming area with stunning scenery, rolling hills and picturesque views of the Pyrénées. The farming is diverse and it’s where, among other things, Gascon Black Pigs are raised.
