Rhone Rangers Thunder in, with Tips on Pairing Wine and Food
|Rough Riders? No, Rhone Rangers!|
For agorophobic (or, at least, more introverted) wine drinkers, the seminars flanking the grand tasting may prove more enjoyable. In addition to workshops on Grenache (white and pink) and the age-ability of Rhone varietals, the seminar that piques SFoodie's interest is the sommelier panel on wine and food pairing.
Moderated by S.F. Chronicle wine editor Jon Bonné, "Bay Area Sommeliers Speak Out: Pairing Food with American Rhone Wines" brings together author Evan Goldstein, Nicole Burke of Town Hall and Salt House, and John Toulze from Sonoma's The Girl & The Fig. They'll discuss more generally about how to pair wine and food together in classic and unconventional ways, then give specific pairing tips for Rhone varietals. Naturally, there will be things on hand to eat and drink to illustrate their suggestions, and naturally, the food will come from Salt House and The Girl.
