Demonstration Wine/cocktail +21

Fall Food and Wine Pairing Demonstration

Enjoying wine with food is one of our favorite pastimes, but understanding how to unite the two can be a challenge. We're going to take the guesswork out of pairing wine with food in this special demonstration class, so you can wow your guests at your next fall dinner party. Join us as we test the "rules" of wine and food, and come up with rules of your own in this mix-and-match of 4 wines with tastings of 3 food items. Advanced Sommelier Mary Ross will discuss ten easy guidelines guaranteed to get the most enjoyment from your pairings, practice wine words and answer questions including "Will any wine complement spicy food?" and "What does red wine with meat really mean?" This is a fun and delicious seminar for all lovers of good wine and food! Generous tasting portions of each dish will be served.
