Tour de France of wine and food

September 23 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Berkshire Botanical Garden will lead a Tour de France of wine and food in the Heart of the Berkshires with Benjamin and Mary Daire, owners of Dare Bottleshop and Provisions in Lenox.

The wines of France have had a profound influence on new and developing wine countries, so even if you haven’t tasted a French wine, you’ve had one inspired by France. For example, the varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay originated in France, and the French versions have a distinct character unlike any other.

Tasting French wine offers a valuable perspective on the evolution of modern wine. We will taste and talk about five wines from various regions of France, each paired with regional delicacies crafted by Chef Benjamin Daire .

The husband-wife team Benjamin and Mary Daire celebrate the thirst for wines that represent place and maker, regionally focused craft beers, artisanal ciders, exciting non-alcoholic beverages, and hunger for an elevated selection of food items.

Their wine selection is rooted in organically farmed grapes, they say, small-production low-intervention wines made with love for taste and the environment by independent winemakers around the world, and their craft beers and ciders are sourced from brewers and farmers in the Northeast.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
