We certainly believe in the mantra “drink what you like,” and when it comes to pairing food and wine: “rules are made for disobeying.” However, we also feel that it’s important to understand why certain wines work better with components in dishes - such as sugar, spice, acid, weight and fat. Your personal palate is always the best judge, but we will give you the tools to decipher what marriages in food and drink work best. Each participant will have a plate of food component samples, ranging from black peppercorns to wedding cake icing. Sommelier Michelle Gueydan will present 5 different wines, ranging in style and variety. Through trial and error with ancillary (albeit crucial) components found on nearly every plate, you will learn how to navigate pairings like a pro.
Cost: $25/person – which includes a souvenir Early Mountain wine glass!
