Gourmet Odyssey and our partner winemakers wish you an excellent New Year!


And so a new year starts and we’re starting to put into action our projects for 2017.  But before we get too caught up in this new vintage, we wanted to send you our best wishes for the year ahead.

Each year brings us its share of great moments and a few surprises, and 2016 was no exception.  We thank you for your loyalty and support as we gear up to accompany you for 2017.  We hope that this New Year is a great vintage and also brings you lots of gastronomic discoveries!

And to get the year started, we asked some of our partner winemakers a few questions about how they spent the Christmas period, and what their hopes and wishes are for the coming year.

 

What wine did you open during the end of year celebrations?

Domaine Chapelle - The traditional Christmas meal this year saw all of the family reunited around the table.  We talked lots about wine and in particular “organic wine”, as we tasted some Alsace and Bordeaux wines from fellow organic winemakers.  And of course we opened a few of our own bottles.  This year, we concentrated on the 1988 vintage to choose the best bottle to serve at the coming wedding of my niece, Elodie.

Domaine Allegria - We enjoyed a curry with a bottle of Chenin Blanc 2016 from Grover Vineyards, one of the top Indian wineries!  Because that is where we were for Christmas day!

Domaine la Cabotte - For Christmas, we opened a magnum of our white Sauvageonne wine.  It’s a great wine for sharing with friends or family with coquilles Saint Jacques in a creamy safran sauce, or more simply with a nicely mature piece of comté cheese.

 

What wishes would you like to share with wine lovers for 2017?

Domaine Chapelle - Remain curious.  The world of wine is becoming more and more interesting, but be demanding of the winemakers and keep them honest by ensuring that they work properly and organically!

Domaine Allegria - We wish you a 2017 full of allegria for your families and those close to you.

Domaine la Cabotte – We hope you drink wines from the terroir and that are biodynamic!

 

And what are you hoping for?

Domaine Chapelle – A great and big harvest for 2017!

Domaine Allegria – A great 2017 harvest, more generous than in 2016!

Domaine la Cabotte – A harvest as good as in 2016!

 

A very happy and tasty 2017 to you all!
