Welcome to Winephabet Street Season 1 Episode 17 Q is for Quarts de Chaume. Winephabet Street is a monthly series where Lori Budd of Draceana Wines and I work our way through the alphabet exploring wine and wine regions on letter at a time. The show is live on the third Monday at 8pm and is free, but you must register to attend. Put it on your calendar, pour yourself a glass of wine and hang out with us.
In October we explored the Quarts de Chaume region of the Loire Valley. This is a special region that produces sweet wines made from Chenin Blanc. Quarts de Chaume was awarded the first Grand Cru title in the Loire Valley.
The wine I chose for this episode was Barton & Guestier 2016 Vouvray (Chenin Blanc). I tried to stick with the grape knowing that I wouldn’t be able to find a true wine from the Quarts de Chaume region. They are very hard to find - this sweet Chenin Blanc.
Sit back with a glass of wine and join us as we explore the Quarts de Chaume region of the Loire Valley. We’ll cover the history, the wine and the food that pairs well with it.
