Summer Down Under Holiday Wines South Hemisphere (Hands On)

Chef Robin Nathan presents Summer Down Under: Holiday Wines of the Southern Hemisphere

Depending on the continent, southern hemisphere wines can be labeled by region, by grape, or both! It's time to get familiar with wines of Chile, Argentina, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. We'll sample one exemplary wine from each of these wine-producing regions and pair them with classic flavors from that area. Southern hemisphere wines offer some of the best wine values, come taste and see why. 

On the menu (with regional wine pairings for each): 
  • South Africa: Lemon Zest Infused Goat Cheese Crostini
  • New Zealand: Ceviche with Coconut
  • Argentina: Flank Steak with Chimichurri 
  • Chile: Pork Tenderloin with Cherry Gastrique and Dulce de Leche Natillas (South American pots de creme)
