We know you have your favorites. We’re acutely aware- some of you are Cabernet drinkers; others are only happy with Riesling. We see it all the time. But the fact of the matter is, wine and food are more often than not consumed together, and they affect one another. Just like onions taste one way with liver and another with vanilla ice cream, food and wine taste different when they’re paired.
And while a grippy Left Bank Bordeaux may have a narrow selection of foods that pair well, there are wines with broader applications. This week, we’ll taste four wines that pair with a broad spectrum of foods, and what they might be served with. The tasting starts at 2:00 pm on Saturday, January 21, costs a mere $15 plus tax and tip, and promises to be fun and tasty. Plus, when’s the last time you tasted Albariño from Maryland?
Anyhow, if you’re interested, we’ve been filling up more and more at the tastings, so you’ll want to save a spot sooner than later by calling us at (520) 326-9363.
