Mirepoix USA, a leading online purveyor of specialty gourmet foods and traditional French foods, announces alliance with new wine partner, Porthos.com, also know as “The Wine Insiders”.
According to Mirepoix USA founder, Laurel Pine, the alliance between the two companies was formed in mid August, 2012. Mirepoix USA is an online source for foie gras, caviar, truffles, Wagyu beef, charcuterie and other fine foods. Laurel Pine stated, “We wanted to offer our discerning clients access to fine wines that pair exceptionally well with specialty gourmet foods such as truffles, caviar and foie gras”.
Porthos, established in June 2000 in the California Wine Country, offers insider connections to the finest hard-to-find and small production, boutique wines not normally available in regular retail stores. The Porthos Team samples over 5,000 wines annually and recommends only the highest scoring 1% to their audience of wine collectors. According to Hal Oates, Co-Founder and President of Porthos, wines are sampled “blind” in a sterile office environment without the influence of personal relationships with the winemakers or advertising revenue.
In conjunction with this new alliance, Mirepoix USA’s website now features a wine and food pairing guide which provides expert wine pairings for foie gras, caviar, and Wagyu beef. According to Mirepoix USA, new wine and food pairing recommendations will be added regularly, including pairings for white truffles, black truffles, charcuterie and imported and artisanal cheese. The Porthos team of experts hand select all the recommended pairings.
