What you'll learn in this wine class:

Wine is our most sensual beverage, with colors sparkling like precious jewels, textures compared to silk and satin and flavors ranging from juicy peach to the finest dry-aged meat. Pairing wine with food can bring enjoyment to new heights, but which food? 

Understanding how to unite the two can be a challenge, but we're going to take all the guesswork out of the process during this special demonstration class. Join Advanced Sommelier Mary Ross to mix-and-match five wines with five food courses, to test the "rules" of wine and food and craft your own sensational wine and food experience! 

Tonight's Menu: 
  • Baked Brie en Croute; 
  • Roasted Beet and Butternut Squash Salad with Almonds and Arugula; 
  • Steamed Mussels, Spicy Italian Sausage, Herbs and Tomatoes; 
  • Sautéed Beef Tenderloin, Crumbled Blue Cheese, Red Wine Reduction and Truffled Potato Puree; 
  • Apple Fritters. 
Wines Enjoyed During Class Include: 
  • Domaine Manciat-Poncet, Burgundy, France; 
  • Schloss Gobelsburg, Riesling, Kamptal, Austria; 
  • Valle dell'Acate, Nero d'Avola, Sicily, Italy; 
  • Anne Pichon, Syrah Grenache "Sauvage" Ventoux, France; 
  • Saracco, Moscato d'Asti, Piedmont, Italy.
