Visiting wine producing regions, drinking the local wines, sampling the local cuisine and generally soaking up the culture (and probably enjoying considerably better weather) is one of the joys of travel and of having an interest in wine.  Capturing a little of that joy without the hassle and expense of travelling must surely turn an ordinary evening in Belfast into a much more memorable experience?

OX Cave is hosting an evening with Quentin Modat from Domaine Modat on Wednesday 11 Feb.   For those of you who are unfamiliar with the wines, may we encourage you take this opportunity to sample the wines in a very convivial setting.  The OX team will be serving charcuterie and cheese to accompany the wines and Quentin Modat will be on hand to bring a flavour of his family’s life and work to Belfast.

Domaine Modat is situated in the Roussillon in the south of France, near to the Spanish border.  The vineyards are moving to organic farming and they plant traditional grape varieties but the winemaking is modern and clean and very accomplished.  These are quality wines from a quality vineyard.

We have been working with the Modat family for a couple of years and they are building a loyal following.  The white in particular was a big hit with JN customers over Christmas.  This should be a great evening – contact OX directly to book.
