Our next dinner is: October 4th featuring Didier Pariente, owner of Nomadic Distribution, exclusive importer of Ouled Thaleb Winery from Morocco!
Domaine Ouled Thaleb was established in 1923. Located in the Zenata coastal appellations between Casablanca and Rabat, Ouled Thaleb led the renewal of the Moroccan wine industry in the 1990’s. While most of their fruit is Estate grown, Ouled Thaleb partners with neighboring growers in order to produce classic style wines under the direction of winemaker, Stephane Marriot. Grapes are grown organically.
About Didier Pariente
Born & Raised in the Roussillon part of Southern France (Perpignan), I grew up in Israel where after finishing my BA in Science of Water and Soil, I decided to take a break in life to travel, discover and learn. What was meant to be a short break ended up being an extensive around the world trip before unexpectedly settling down in Aspen, Colorado. While spending 9 years working in FOH positions in high end restaurants in Aspen, I tirelessly worked on a new project, to bring and expose American wine drinkers to the Wines of Morocco. After starting Exotic Imports, based in Aspen Colorado, I quickly realized that in order to expose more people to Moroccan wines, I would need to move to a larger city. In 2010, I relocated to Los Angeles and founded Nomadic Distribution, an import/distribution company specializing, of course, in Moroccan wines. By exposing Morocco as a new wine region I began to seek out great wines from other countries based on the idea that wine can come from anywhere and everywhere. In my pursuit of happiness, I have been to many places, met many wonderful people and I hope to bring with Nomadic Distribution the rather unexpected but delighting experience from various wine regions. Always ready to shock those with new bottles from far off places, I try to inject this infectious love for wine, its sense of place and its stories with those that I meet.
We’re looking forward to pairing those fantastic wines with an eclectic don dickman menu!
