FOOD & WINE PARING private lectures (1 hour)

Pairing wine with food is more art than science.
Food and wine pairing is a highly subjective and inexact process. The old rules — primarily red wine with red meat and white wine with fish and poultry — don't take into consideration the complexity of today’s multi-ethnic and subtly flavored foods and the corresponding wide range of wines from around the world that are now conveniently available to almost everyone.The instructor will guide you through tastings of white, red and dessert wines explaining the various characteristics of different varieties of grapes and their ideal combinations with dishes.
