We’re thrilled to welcome Joao Roseira, winemaker and owner of Infantado Ports, to the wine store from 5-7pm tonight, Friday, November 12. Joao will be pouring his ruby, tawny and vintage 2004 ports for your tasting pleasure and Provisions will be providing blue cheese samples to pair. Ports make a great after dinner drink especially around the holidays.
Since we opened, we’ve carried Infantado ports. The first estate-bottled port producer in the Douro, Infantado has blazed a trail for independent port producers and is creating a whole new heritage and legacy. Their ruby port shows dark, rich plum-like flavors and an elegant touch of sweetness. The tawny brings nice nuttiness and flavors of chocolate and tobacco. And the delicious 2004 vintage port drinks like a fine wine with layers and depth. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet Joao and hear what goes into crafting such high quality ports.
Join us in the Brooklyn wine store on Friday, February 13 from 5-7pm when we sample Nunu chocolates and three kinds of port. Port and chocolate are a classic pairing and we’re thrilled at the opportunity to showcase our Nunu chocolates.
Nunu Chocolates are handmade in Brooklyn by Justine Pringle. She uses a single-origin cocoa bean grown on a family-run farm in eastern Colombia to craft her delicious chocolates. Our favorite is the salt caramel – it deliciously combines sweet and salty flavors and is even adorned with flakes of salt. Caramel sans extra salt comes in the beautiful package of her Golden Caramel Butterflies. We’ll be pairing Justine’s chocolates with Charbay ruby port, Infantado tawny port and Blueberry port from Duckwalk vineyards.
The Brooklyn wine store is at 765 Fulton Street in Fort Greene, Brooklyn 718.797.9463. Nunu chocolates are available at the food store, Greene Grape Provisions, at 753 Fulton Street in Fort Greene, Brooklyn 718.233.2700.
