Natural and Wild: Wine and Food with Minimal Intervention, Maximal Flavor
The category of "natural" wines is exciting, controversial, and growing. Many definitions persist, but in general these are wines made from organically grown and biodynamically farmed grapes, with as little human intervention as possible between harvest and bottling.
Only naturally occurring yeasts are used. No additives, no high-tech alteration during fermentation, no funny stuff. No-or-exceptionally-low sulfur added. Everything done by hand, on a very small scale. The wines, when well made, express a range of flavors, and profiles of freshness, purity and drive, unavailable from more assertively treated wines.
Ned Swain of Devenish Wines has been at the forefront of efforts to bring more of these wines to Maine. Ned will join us at this event to provide background, philosophical perspective, and history of the wineries.
We will match the wines with an exceptional array of foods that complement the spirit of these wines. Using seasonal foods from Rosemont's deep and varied array of local producers, we will craft dishes that are delicious, unique and memorable. Some items will be cooked, some will be raw, some will be fermented. They will all be spectacular!
