Wine & Cheese pairing 2/13/2020
Your requests have been heard! We know how much you all love Ashley and Devin's wine & cheese pairing events. They have agreed to host another one, here at the Alliance Française de Denver! On a vaiment hâte! Just in time for La Saint Valentin :)
A message from Ashley:
"J'aime la France!
What better way to celebrate Valentine's than by sipping on wines from the best soil on earth- from a country we all love. Join us as we taste through the whole of France on February 13th and hear stories of others that fell hard for this country's vineyards as well as winemaker partners that harness some of the best love stories, too! We are sure to visit Champagne, St. Amour in Beaujolais (obviously), the Rhone valley, Provence... "
A little more about her:
"Ashley came into the wine industry in 2008 while completing her Masters in English and American Literature at New York University. She moved to Denver, Colorado in 2009 to manage Little's Fine Wine & Spirits; in 2013, she took a position in import distribution for Old World Wine Imports, which she still represents. Ashley also teaches for the Wine Education Institute and conducts many private and public events through her own education/consulting business - Mistral Wine Co., which she formed in 2014. Former and present clients include Rocky Mountain PBS, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, Alliance Francaise, The Italian Institute and Liv Sotheby's International. Recently, Ashley was awarded the Commanderie de Bordeaux aux Etats Unis Scholarship for outstanding performance by a North American student in the MW Study Programme. She also serves on the Colorado Wine Industry Development Board, for whom she is Chair of the Legislative and Business Development Committee as well as Secretary. When she is not teaching, selling or drinking wine, she can be found reading, writing, running, cooking or obsessing over her dog." - https://www.mastersofwine.org
A little more about Devin:
"Born and raised in Virginia, food and family was central to Devin’s upbringing. As a 30-year veteran of cooking and food service, his career has taken him to Italy, France, Spain, and Antarctica. After having cured prosciutto and salami in Tuscany in 2009, his focus became cheese and he earned the title of Certified Cheese Professional in 2013." - https://www.theseasonedchef.com/
