Forget everything you were ever taught about how to pair wine and food because we are throwing it out the window with Sommelier Corrine Maund from 13th Street Winery!
The art of pairing food and wine is not a skill that is easily mastered. Great Taste Makers like Corrine, devote years of studying, tasting, and risk-taking to hone their palate-pleasing stripes. Once this skill is mastered; talented sommeliers like Corrine set out in search of new palate-provoking oddities that will challenge wine pairing norms and our traditional understanding of what works and what does not.
Some of the best pairings in the world have come to light in just such a quest – most notably; potato chips and sparkling wine, cheeseburgers and cabernet, and buttered popcorn and chardonnay, just to name a few.
Join Corrine, as she throws tradition out the window and guides you through a palate-provoking pairing workshop that is sure to challenge everything you thought you knew about food and wine.
