Food & Wine

Both an art and a science, food and wine pairing is a grand experiment in flavor and enjoyment. Learn about the six basic taste sensations detectable by humans and how they interact with a variety of wines. Use this foundational knowledge to discover what you love, create stellar classic pairings, and make your own, always marrying great food and great wine. To get the most out of this experience, we recommend having some pantry staple items at the ready to pair with the wines: plain potato chips, any type of vinegar, walnuts, an aged cheese (Parmigiano-Reggiano), a soft creamy cheese (brie or similar), and jam or preserves.
