Back in 1949 a man known to many Houstonians simply as Richard opened his first liquor store at 2124 South Shepherd. In the old country, his family drank wine with every evening meal, so it was only natural for Richard to become Houston's first serious wine merchant. His philosophy: know your product well, keep prices low and treat your customers like family. This is the philosophy that still guides us today. More »
FREE WINE CLASSES AND TASTING
When: Wednesday March 12th from 7:30pm-8:30pm
Where: Richard's - 1900 Shepherd Drive
Ask the average wine drinker to name the home of the Malbec grape and chances are that they will answer, "Argentina." However, seven thousand miles northeast in the historic Cahors region of South West France, wine producers must view this 21st century phenomenon with a mixture or wonder and disbelief. For Cahors is the historic and once world-famous home of Malbec: it was Cahors that gave Argentina its first Malbec vines, when French agronomists took cuttings there in 1852. Today, the winemakers of Cahors are determined to reclaim Malbec as their own. The famous 'black wines' of Cahors were true vins de garde, suitable for long cellaring but needing that time to soften their sometimes brutal tannins. Such wines do not suit today's consumer, especially when the warm and sunny conditions in Mendoza amplify Malbec's sweeter, riper and creamier side. The winemakers of Cahors have new vineyard regimes that harvest riper grapes with less strident tannins, and gentler winemaking that can still harness the power and depth of Malbec, but without the level of extraction that once made these wines so tough in their youth. This week we will have a wonderful French Experience from One of the premier producers in Cahors, Georges Vigourouxux! Donít miss this great opportunity to taste some exquisite wines! Viva La Cahor Malbec!
