Why does Cabernet Sauvignon Sauvignon pair so well with a juicy steak?  Why do we drink crisp white wine with oysters?  Come and explore the fabulous world of food and wine pairing with us in this science-based exploration of the structural elements of food and wine and how they partner up. What zings!? and what doesn't? and most importantly Why?

You'll taste through various food elements and wines and learn about they interact with each other and how to pick the perfect wine for the next meal that you're planning, including what will pair well with sweet potatoes and marshmallows. It's easy and it's fun!

In person: $40 per person ($32 for wine club member). Sit-down, socially distanced workshop. Includes food and 10% discount on all wine purchases. Click here for tickets.
