n. A person who drinks only locally produced wine or beer.
Locapours rising. You’ve heard of locavores, virtuous foodies obsessed with the 100-mile diet? A similar movement is gaining traction in the drinks world as Canadians turn increasingly to quality domestic wines and craft beers.
German Broggi arrived in Washington in June as the new beverage director at the Park Hyatt Hotel and its fervently locavore restaurant, Blue Duck Tavern. A native of Argentina and a 15-year veteran of the Park Hyatt's global empire, Broggi immediately set out to visit local wineries with the idea of building Blue Duck Tavern's "locapour" credentials.
"Locapour" meets "lovacore" today in the Union Square Greenmarket. The first in a series of tastings will pair local wines from the Finger Lakes, the Hudson Valley and Long Island and Greenmarket dishes.
