How to Pair Wine with Food How to Pair Wine with Food
Instructors: Doug McCrea, local winemaker and Leanne Willard, BSC Director

There’s nothing better than sharing a delicious meal and the perfect wine to pair with it. But, how do know exactly what wine to pair with that meal? Join Doug and Leanne for an illuminating class where you’ll discover the basics of pairing wine with food. You’ll learn some basic principles of matching wine with different flavors and then get to taste seven varieties of wine with dishes specifically chosen to highlight what works! Try Shrimp with Barbecue Spices with a white wine with some residual sugar, and Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Mini Tarts with a dry white. Salmon Nuggets with Garlic Cream Sauce are paired with a lightly oaked white, and a Rose’ is paired with Fromage Fort Crostini, bubbly and broiled cheese atop toasted bread. French Onion Stuffed Mushrooms are perfectly matched with a light and elegant red, Meatballs with Marinara Sauce are spot on paired with a fruit-focused, soft tannins red, and Roasted Lamb Bites are complemented by a big tannic red. If you enjoy food and wine, you won’t want to miss this evening! page link
