Chantovent Wine at Bite Bistro Alpharetta Ga

Updated on 4-22-13 with new menu items.

Finally, it seems that spring has indeed sprung, and that provides a perfect opportunity to pair Bite Bistro & Bar’s exceptional cuisine with food friendly wines from the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France.  Bite’s Leif Johnson and Jason Morgan welcome Chantovent’s export manager, Bruno Gaschet, for an exploration of wines from southern France, which will be paired with small plates created especially for the warmer springtime weather. Guests will enjoy five courses and five wines during the evening’s festivities.

Chantovent was founded in 1953. The company is owned by 1,200 winegrowers brought together into one winemaking union, representing nearly 15,000 acres of vineyards, with a total annual production of more than 8.5 million gallons of wine. Chantovent exports 25 percent of its wine to 35 countries around the world. As a specialist in wines from the Languedoc region of France, the company is primarily focused on developing distinctive “terroir-driven” wines from Vin de Pays des Coteaux de Peyriac and Minervois.
