Columbus Day is a Time To Discover Beaujolais!
Columbus Day wine and food pairings could go in any number of directions. For me, it’s a chance to try out some new food and wine pairings. After all, the purpose of the day is to celebrate Christopher Columbus discovering America in 1492 and the introduction of European culture into the Americas.
Wine lifestyle trends today are based on the introduction and discovery of new foods brought to our country every day. Many foods native to the Americas were brought to Europe during the centuries to follow and even more European products were brought to America. Over time, the Europeans learned to use the products from the New World and integrated them into their traditional cuisines.
I’m going to try some great Discover Beaujolais wines paired with chocolate and strawberries from the Melting Pot in Chicago. Enjoy the video! And be sure to follow Wine Channel TV for all of your wine lifestyle news around the world!
