CELEBRATING the spirit of independence and liberty, the Americans in the Lot association will host a barbecue, on the Fourth of July of course, in central Cahors in front of the Villa Malbec.
A degustation featuring, along with Cahors Malbecs, those from several California wineries, will be presented by Paul Bush, owner of Madroña Winery in the Mother Lode Country of California.
A must for such an event is a genuine American barbecue offering up hamburgers, coleslaw, fries and brownies are on the menu, provided by a 'chuck wagon'.
And to really get you in the spirit of the day, there will be American blues and country music provided by guitar and banjo strumming duo Harpwood and those down home boys at Grizzly Dreams.
Entrance to degustation and music €5, including a Malbec wine glass and one glass of wine, with the barbecue priced at €15.
