About the Event

Vinequity and Flavours of Guyana Talk food and Wine Pairing

This event is a part of the Vinequity Black History Month event series.

Join us on Instagram Live, February 7, 2021, at 1:00 pm for a food and wine pairing session with catering and food company Flavours of Guyana.

We’ll talk to the Flavours of Guyana team about traditional Guyanese foods and their African influences. We’ll also highlight a Guyanese dish (Cook-Up Rice) and pair it with wine. Our intention is to both highlight Afro-Caribbean food and to make it clear that Riesling is not the only wine pairing for spiced driven and flavourful Caribbean foods. With that said, we are big Riesling fans too!!

The Food & Wine

If you want to taste along with us, here are the details for the food and wine pairing.

The Wine - Land of Hope Pinot Noir 2019, Hemel en Aarde Valley, South Africa

Radford Dale started The Land of Hope Trust in 2007, a project where the direct and sole beneficiaries are the 'previously disadvantaged individual' employees of Radford Dale and their children and dependents. The Land of Hope trustees know their duty: to equip the next generation with the skills and confidence to promote entrepreneurial vim, a sense of adventure and optimistic self-reliance.

The Hemel en Aarde Valley grows vines which produce high quality Pinot Noir grapes, which means the wine has more depth and texture as well as presence and poise. Whole berry fermentation lifts the aromatics while also bringing supple tannins and length. Dark red fruit and subtle earthiness can be detected. This is a fragrant, bright and refreshing Pinot with wonderful succulence, expressive fruitiness and is full of character.

Pinot Noir is very versatile to pair. This wine will go well with fish like salmon and is also delicious with duck confit and other roast meats and mushrooms.

The wine can be ordered here and single bottles purchased at the LCBO (49 Spadina Ave, Toronto, ON M5V 2J1)

About Guyana

Guyana, a country on South America’s North Atlantic coast, is defined by its dense rainforest. English-speaking, with cricket and calypso music, it's culturally connected to the Caribbean region. Indigenous peoples inhabited Guyana prior to European settlement, and their name for the land, guiana (“land of water”), gave the country its name. Its capital, Georgetown, is known for British colonial architecture, including tall, painted-timber St. George’s Anglican Cathedral. A large clock marks the facade of Stabroek Market, a source of local produce.
