Tasting and Pairing Wines with Foods With Vanessa Wich

Expand your appreciation of wines with a trained sommelier. Learn how to identify specific tasting notes and flavor profiles in major grape varietals. We will sample 8 of BriarPatch’s Organic wines, including: Jeriko Upper Russian River Pinot Noir, Chacewater Zinfandel, Beaver Creek “Fairytale” Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cantina Pizzolato NSA Prosecco. Also, learn tips and tricks about how to pair these wines (and others) with your everyday meals. We’ll pair with delectable Mediterranean appetizers including roasted cherry tomatoes, stuffed peppers, and olive tapenade.
