Carolyn Joy

Our guest chef for the May 2017 edition of KUVO's Wine and Food Pairing is the new chef at Dazzle at Baur's Mario Godoy.  He'll be serving a fresh take on a traditional recipe from his native Jalisco, Mexico.  And sommelier Carolyn Joy has just the match.

Godoy's dish is called "Carnes En Su Jugo."  He'll be serving it at KUVO Night, a benefit for the community jazz radio station on Thursday, May 25 at the new downtown Denver home of Dazzle Jazz, 1512 Curtis St. 

Carolyn Joy

Carolyn Joy believes in natural wine.  Natural viticulture, bio-dynamic... It's kind of making the way wine was made a century ago... new again.  Joy, sommelier and proprietor of Joy Wine and Spirits in Denver visits "First Take with Lando and Chavis" monthly.

Joy says there are more than 200 additives used in bulk wine production.  Some additives are natural, like  fish bladder and egg whites.  Some additives are not natural, like "Mega-purple," which adds a deeper crimson to the color of red wine.

In a bag or in a box, summertime wine in Colorado's parks and outdoor concert venues do not involve glass bottles.  Carolyn Joy from Joy Wine & Spirits comes to the rescue with an array of varietals, vintages and accessories for the June edition of KUVO's Wine and Food Pairing on the morning show "First Take with Lando and Chavis."

Given the Passover Seder plate staples of brisket and matzoh, a fuller bodied red wine would be good, although we've always tried to let our customers choose whatever they want.  We do have red and white kosher wines.

Kosher wine has come a long way in the last five years with more modern wine making techniques, more care in the vineyard and more care in the cellar.  There is much more variety as well: pinot noir, sparkling, cabernet, chardonnay, white blends.

The third Thursday of every month at 6:35 pm MST, Carolyn Joy of Joy Wine and Spirits teams up with a local chef to provide a divine wine and food pairing. 

Featured Wine: Bedrock Winery Zinfandel 2013

Zinfandel is the third largest wine crop in California behind Cabernet and Chardonnay. But most of it goes for either the sweet pink stuff introduced to us in the 70’s or rather non-descript wine.
