Recipe: Tourtière with Oliver Twist Estate Winery Malbec
This year, we had the pleasure to work with Catherine Côté Martel, from Montréal but native to Lac Saint-Jean, a place known for its Tourtière. She shared this recipe with us, perfect for the winter.
Tourtière, a hearty meat pie, originates in Quebec where they know how to keep warm in cold weather! Try this filling, tasty dish with our full-bodied Malbec.
