Red Wines of Summer Food and Wine Pairing

August 10, 2023
Thursday, August 10th 6:00PM - 8:00PM | $120

We're not stowing away the reds just because the weather is warmer. Whites and rosés will always be summer favorites, but lighter reds are great sippers, too! Come and explore with us as George Punter, CSW, and Chef Carrie team up to bring you deliciously bright dishes paired with easy drinking reds. Grain Salad With Roasted Corn and Peaches is summer on a plate. Roast Chicken With Mushrooms, Lemon, and Herbs will be a palate pleaser with a lighter-bodied red. You'll enjoy Bruschetta-Style Steak topped with a Local Tomato Salsa. And Sour Cream Panna Cotta With Red Wine Cherries will be the perfect ending.
