Local Vegan Cheese & Wine Pairing

It’s no secret we love our cheese, and that certainly doesn’t mean it has to be dairy-based. Join us for a delish class featuring Living Roots wines paired with housemade vegan cheeses from The Red Fern. We’ll chat about both complementing and contrasting flavors as we make our way through the pairings!

Gluten Free options are available upon request before April 26th. Please email erin@livingrootswine.com with your request - if it is not received by April 26th, we will be unable to accommodate a gluten free option. All food offerings contain soy and nuts.

A Very Rochester Pairing: Plates & Wine

For more than 50 years, the Plate has been a staple in the Rochester area.

Come hungry!

Vegetarian options are available upon request before May 13th. Please email erin@livingrootswine.com with your request - if it is not received by May 13th, we will be unable to accommodate a Vegetarian option.
