Last year a couple weeks before Thanksgiving, I had the pleasure of meeting and visiting with Labid al Ameri from Domiane Bousquet. Labid was here in Houston for a day and preparing to teach an evening cooking class for the Central Market. Unfortunately due to a prior engagement, I could not attend Labid’s evening cooking class. Instead, that early afternoon I did have the opportunity to taste a nice selection of Domaine Bousquet wines. While sipping their Brut Rosé, I had a moment to ask Labid a few questions about his cooking class, we talked about about his food pairing ideas and some of his favorite recipes. I mentioned, I too enjoy cooking and look forward to pairing some Domain Bousquet wines with a few of my meals. All this being said, a few days after our conversation, I received three wines to sample and pair; Domaine Bousquet Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and reserve Malbec. Since then, I was able to find the Gaia white blend at Kroger for $16.99 in the Houston Heights and the lovely Brut Rosé at the Central Market for $14.95 in the Houston Galleria. Here in Houston you can also find Domaine Bousquet at HEB and the Houston downtown Spec’s.
What is important to remember about Domaine Bousquet is their wines are made with organically grown grapes from the Tupungato Uco Valley in Mendoza, Argentina, and also Vegan friendly. Enjoy!
