It’s almost time for the tenth Wine Pairing Weekend (#winePW)! As always, #winePW takes place on on the second Saturday of the month, so March 14, 2015 is our next one. This #winePW is really a two part event. On February 28, we observed Open That Bottle Night (#OTBN), opening up a special bottle of wine that had languished too long on the shelf. For the upcoming event, we asked participants to share about the bottle they chose to open for #OTBN, and the food that they paired with it. This gave us a fun chance to come up with pairings for special wine. Here’s a preview of the pairings:
Culinary Adventures with Camilla paired Roasted Flank Steak with Goat Cheese and Caperberries + La Marea 2012 Mourvèdre
Tasting Pour is sharing Chenin to Sheepie? Brava Cava! #Winewpw #OTBN
Pull That Cork served Crozes Hermitage and Braised Lamb with Puréed Root Vegetables for #winePW 10
