5 Course Wine DinnerFeaturing Domaine Bousquet
Domaine Bousquet is an organic winery in Tupungato, Uco Valley (Mendoza) Argentina that offers a variety of delicious wines that we pair with each course.
They grow many different grapes in a climate ideal for organic production. The combination of sandy soil, good drainage, and cool and fresh air are the perfect conditions for good “wine stress.”
If you have high quality Argentinian wines, it is the perfect opportunity to pair them with Argentinian dishes. Freight took that idea and developed an incredible 5 course menu that highlights each wine with a traditional Argentinian dish. See the full menu.
When you think of classic dishes from Argentina, certain ones come to mind. The empanada is certainly a classic favorite and how dinner begins. For our first course, we will pair the empanada with the Chardonnay which offers a good balance of sweetness and acidity.
The second course is a salad with braised lamb, called Ensalada a La Parilla. We pair this with the Gaia, which has notes of blackberry, truffle and spices. This will blend well with the flavor of the lamb.
The third course is a veal stew with vegetables, called Carbonada Criolla. The Malbec is the choice for this course. Notes of currant, coffee, and black pepper as well as shades of raspberry and fig make this a good choice for this course.
The fourth course serves as the main entree. It is called El Fuego Cocineros and is a grilled ribeye served with charred vegetables accompanied with the classic chimichurri, salsa roja, and salsa verde. Because it is beef, the Cabernet Sauvignon is the obvious choice to pair with it.
Finally, the fifth course is the dessert, a sweet ending to an incredible South American experience. The Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is the pairing selection as it has intense flavors of black currant and tobacco as well as notes of raspberry and minerals. It will be wonderful with the selection of cheeses and Dulce de Leche, which is a classic Argentinian dessert.
