Update: We shared some great Regional Food and Wine Pairings for #winePW 4. You can get a links to these posts here. Now we are getting ready for #winePW 5 featuring “Fall Fruits and Wine Pairings” hosted by Culinary Adventures with Camilla on October 11.
Some wine and food was just meant to go together. Often the reason a dish goes well with a particular wine is that the cuisine is rooted in the same region where the wine grapes were grown. We are focusing on the interplay of food and wine that hail from the same region for Wine Pairing Weekend 4, “Regional Food and Wine Pairings” on Saturday, September 13.
As I explained in my post introducing Wine Pairing Weekend, I find plenty of online events focusing on food and wine separately, but not too much looking at the interplay of food and wine. Wine Pairing Weekend (#winePW for short and on Twitter) is a monthly event featuring bloggers posting about a pairing in response to a particular theme, along with discussion on social media about the topic. This will include a live #winePW Twitter chat at 11 a.m. Eastern time on Saturday September 13. Anyone interested in the subject can jump into the conversation on Twitter at that time, which can also be accessed on our Twubs page for easy viewing and tweeting. The questions for the Twitter Chat are posted at the Wine Pairing Weekend site.
Below I’m linking to the bloggers that have let me know they plan to participate. Thanks to the early responders to this third #winePW! If you’re reading this before September 13, you can still jump in with a blog post of your own. Just check out the September Intro Post for more of the blogger details and email me at winepairingweekend AT gmail.com. If you’ve come to us after August 9, consider joining us for #winePW 5 focused on “Fall Fruits and Wine Pairings” hosted by Culinary Adventures with Camilla on Saturday, October 11.
