Kermit Lynch French Wine Dinner

  • Biga Restaurant 4329 South Peoria Avenue Tulsa, OK, 74105 United States (map)

“Kermit Lynch was raised in San Luis Obispo, but his name has become synonymous with French and Italian wines. In 1972, with a $5,000 loan and maybe a bit of gumption, this writer/musician opened Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant with thirty-five cases of wine stacked on the floor. Attracted by the Old-World wine cultures of Europe, Kermit became a retailer, distributor, and national importer for authentic wines that express their terroir. Much like his close friends, the late food writer Richard Olney and Chez Panisse’s founder Alice Waters, Kermit’s influence has been enduring. He has had so much success shining the spotlight on small, artisan producers that he has won two James Beard awards and was knighted by the French government with their prestigious “Legion d’Honneur.”

1st Course
Salmon Nicoise Salad

Wine-Domaine Trotereau Quincy Loire Valley
100% Sauvignon Blanc
“With a distinctive flavor profile born from warmer soils, it tastes of ripe, succulent citrus devoid of grassiness, while boasting the same flinty nerve as a good Sancerre. The snappy finish beckons a refill. LUTTE RAISONNÉE”

2nd Course
Mushroom Lasagna

Wine-Chateau La Grave Cahors Southwest of France
100% Malbec
“Richly luxurious and softly layered, its texture stands out among well-integrated jolts of earth, black tea and strawberry-rhubarb.”
