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.
