From 19 to 23 March at L'Espace Senghor (Chaussée de Wavre 366 - Walkway at Jourdan Square). For details on the programme, pick up a flyer @ Mig's!
Australian Food & Wine Tasting: "Fair Dinkum Aussie" Andrew from Australian Fine Wines will be hosting not only a "Down Under" wine tasting but will be showcasing the new Outback range of products. Jams, conserves, sauces, spices ..etc. So get your taste buds ready and let's eat, drink and be merry! This Saturday 24th of March from 11am to 7pm, free as usual.
More and more often Mig's is proud to have distinguished guests to host our weekly wine tasting. This time it's Nora Sperling from Delheim (Stellenbosch, South Africa) who will be pouring from behind the counter. Delheim wines are "classic" South African-style wines, not too overly New World fruit-driven, with a more "European" structure, yet with typical South African flavours. We'll be tasting a crisp clean-cut sauvignon blanc, a smoky spicy shiraz, and last but not least the top end Grand Reserve, a beautifully well-balanced "Bordeaux-blend". There's no one better than Nora to talk about her family's wines so don't miss her: this Saturday 17th of March from 11am to 7pm.
19 to 23 March 2007 at l'Espace Senghor.
Flyers available @ Mig's.

Every so often we have the pleasure of being visited by a “fair dinkum” “down under” winemaker or producer. This Saturday 10th of February, we’ll be welcoming Justin Nugent of Bird in Hand winery (Adelaide Hills). Fun on the label (Bird in Hand, Two in the Bush, Nest Egg!) but serious quality in the bottle.
So just pop in and meet Justin, have a chat while tasting his wines. Tasting from 11am to 7pm. Free as usual. All welcome. Cheers!
Lots of new wines to taste for the first time, including from "Lazio" and top "Trentino".

The young and (very) friendly typically Brussels' "melting pot" team at Café Gudule have just created a fine little place. Be it for just a cup of coffee or a beer (or a good glass of wine!) or even a hearty lunch, you'll be welcome here as you would at home.
The food's fine and generously served, there's a sizeable selection of wines by the glass and the atmosphere is great fun: a Ste Gudule fresco on the walls, "BD belge" menus, frites in terra cotta plant pots, a "mur d'expression" = blackboard and chalk in the loo...! The smile on your face will not only be because your tummies are full.
So go out of the beaten track and check these guys and gal out!
For this new year we wish you an "and" year :
Red and white wines.
Sweet and dry wines.
Still and sparkling wines.
An inclusive, not exclusive year. A year of differences and diversity (starting here: "small" Belgium). Ouch!! Sounds a little too serious! So we also wish you a year full of fun and laughter !

Beautiful Bubbles for 2007
For New Year's Eve let's keep it classic. Beautiful bubbles to start the New Year with a ...pop!
Mig's selection has now grown to up to 30 sparkling wines!
Palau Cava is the perfect party pleaser and at 7.60€ a pop, you can crack open quite a few.
Cava can go right up to the top end: Raventòs i Blanc L'Hereu, Grand Reserva 2002 and Elisabeth Raventòs 2001.
Our prosecco has become a favorite of our customers especially the slightly sparkling "frizzante" (8.90€). Also from Ruggieri the full "sparkling" Argeo and the pretty Rosé di Pinot.
From Australia, we have two great party wines. The fun "Barramundi" and a new quality "bubbly" from Mitchelton "Imprint" (both under 10€). Top notch Oz are Grant Burge Brut, the Rosé Taltarni Brut Taché, the classy Croser and the new Kreglinger from Tasmania.
From France, we have, as always, our so succesful Forget Brimont 1er Cru Champagne (also now as a rosé), the elegant cuvée 730 from Jacquesson, the classy Grande Reserve from Gosset (superbe packaging) and "Bondy" Bolly: Bollinger Spéciale Cuvée, Bollinger Grande Année 97 and Bollinger R.D. 1996. Talking about the top, we may have a few Dom Përignon in before 2007.
And that's not all folks !
Just to mention the sweet low alcool Moscato's and Brachetto (red) and other weird red sparkling Shiraz and Merlot from down-under.
But our "coup de coeur" (see this section on this site) is Belgian Sparkling wine made from rhubarb by Vins de Roisin. Brut but with a mouth filling body. Rhubarb, yes but not too much, more like a quality champagne with something special. A fun and flavoursome way to accompany smoked salmon or just enjoy on its own.
Cheers and see you in 2007
No tasting before Christmas but exceptionally we do have :
1. A tasting of Roisin's Sparkling Rhubarb wine on Saturday's and Sunday's.
2. A selection of our top spirits to try before you buy. Just ask us.
Just arrived : a superb selection of terrines and jams from Roisin and a large choice of organic olive oils from Quattrociocchi.
These additions to our range give us an even larger scope to create your gift packs.
So see you at Mig's.
P.S: We are open the next two Sundays, so it's non-stop opening (from 11am to 7 pm) every day until Christmas !
On sale in shop: mature Bordeaux from a private cellar, ready to drink and perfect for end of year celebrations. Only 50 bottles and small quantities of each: Château Talbot '86 and '90, Pontet-Canet '82, '88, '86 and '94, Haut-Batailley '90...and more. First come first serve!
Do you have Georgia on your mind? If so you can have some on your palate (no not a French kiss!). A first at Mig's from the birth place of wine (some 7000 years ago!). You will taste a white Tsinandali and a red Saperavi (blended with a bit of cab).
Also offered to taste: cheap and cheerful wines from the Cape: Swaai chenin blanc and Swaai merlot.
Wonderful news from one of our quality suppliers: the two top wines from Columbia Crest (USA) have arrived: Eroica Riesling and Walter Clore, plus an absolutely delicious "little" pinot noir from Catena (Argentina), the Alamos Pinot Noir.
