Peter & Co Serves Up Fine Wine!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

With the thrust to make the Caribbean, in­clud­ing Saint Lu­cia, a renowned culi­nary des­ti­na­tion, food and wine pair­ing has in­evitably be­come part of this new niche. There are in­deed plenty of wines that go well with Caribbean foods and Peter & Com­pany now carry an ar­ray of these wines for just the right oc­ca­sion.

On Fri­day July 31 Peter & Co. hosted “Un­corked- a Wine & Cheese Mixer,” on the plea­sure boat the Pearl, in the Rod­ney Bay Ma­rina, from 5 to 8pm. The pur­pose - in­tro­duce their spe­cially in­vited cus­tomers to some of Saint Lu­cia’s finest wines. All of the wines are avail­able at Peter & Co. and pa­trons were also given a quick study on the ben­e­fits and use of some of these fine wines and the op­tions to pair with food.

Whether en­ter­tain­ing guests, host­ing an event or cater­ing at a res­tau­rant or bar, the wide as­sort­ment on dis­play last Fri­day gave per­sons sev­eral op­tions.

Wine ex­traor­di­naire Mr. Martin Ja­groop was also on hand to show­case how these wines could be in­cor­po­rated into food recipes to change and or add to that aro­matic flavour that visi­tors to the is­land find ex­otic. Some of the wines sam­pled by guests Fri­day in­cluded Hardy’s Moscato, Ravenswood Lodi Old Vine Zin­fan­del, Ruffino Chi­anti and Two Oceans Moscato as well as Two Oceans Caber­net Sauvi­gnon Mer­lot, among oth­ers.

At­ten­dees at Fri­day’s event thor­oughly en­joyed the oc­ca­sion that also af­forded them the op­por­tu­nity to take home some of these wines at spe­cial prices. “With this be­ing the first of its kind, the con­cept of Un­corked, brought to­gether some of the world’s finest wines paired with de­li­cious cheeses, a per­fect mar­riage for the oc­ca­sion,” noted Ger­maine Se­rieux brand man­ager at Peter & Com­pany for these ex­otic wines. He fur­ther added that the at­ten­dees em­braced the am­biance of the Pearl and thought that the event was an ex­quis­ite one and are look­ing for­ward to other sim­i­lar mix­ers.

Proudly dis­play­ing some of the com­pany’s

fine wines.
