4 COURSE WINEMAKER’S DINNER DISTANT CELLARS
Pair Reception featured a demonstration style dinner in the Gold Country of Fiddletown, California, USA, which was superb! I joined fellow food & wine lovers on this informative and innovative approach to food pairing with wine. Dinner was prepared by Chef Glen Johnson from Under the Canape Catering and the winemaker talked briefly about the wines being paired.
JORDAN FOOD & WINE PAIRING TOUR
I went on a wonderful Winery Tour with Jordan Vineyard & Winery in Sonoma County. Their wine tasting tour featured friendly and knowledgeable tour guide, spectacular views of the valley, a view of their magnificent Sonoma wine country garden and vineyards, a view of their amazing farm with amazing wildlife, their wine production facility, and most importantly, a food pairing with their Russian River Valley Chardonnay and Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with hors d’oeuvre pairings by their own onsite chef in their superb cellar.
TASTING ANALYSIS FOR FOOD & WINE PAIRING
The purpose of this food and wine pairing analysis is to help you identify the characteristic flavors of certain fruits and vegetables, and determine how they pair with certain wines. I believe the first phase in establishing a food and wine pairing match is to first determine the flavors in the wine and then experiment with how those flavors can be matched with flavors found in fruits and vegetables.
In my interactions with the hotel guests, they look for the fun things to do and places to explore. They also love food and wine, which is how the idea of this blog evolved. I believe this blog will help fulfill the opportunity to educate not only tourists, but food and wine lovers all over the world!
I hope you enjoy this journey we will share together!
