Pairing Wine & Food

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! Jeanne taught this same class back in March, and it went so well that we wanted to offer it again!

Pairing wine with food can be delicious and fun, and yet it can also be intimidating. This class will break it down, focusing on the fundamental components of wine and food, and how to match them. This hands-on experience, featuring six Living Roots wines and small bites of food, will teach you about both complementing and contrasting flavors to enhance your pairing skills. 

We are so excited to have Jeanne Fradella back, teaching us more about what makes wine and food go so well together! Please note that the nibbles served in this class will include meat, dairy and gluten.

Fueled with inspiration from the traditional French Diner en Blanc (Dinner in White), a committee of Finger Lakes wine industry representatives wanted to create an event early this summer highlighting Finger Lakes Dry Rosé while creating a classic soirée style celebration to be held outside, on Linden Street, in Geneva NY.  For those of you not familiar with Linden Street; it is that quaint, romantic alley lined with brick that is home to Microclimate Wine Bar.

We'll be pouring Rosé alongside many other producers in the Finger Lakes, and hope to see you there!
