Wine and Food Pairing 101

At Brooks, we believe wine and food are fun! Step into the Brooks classroom for a hands-on tutorial that takes the intimidation of out pairing wine with food. Your guide will take you on a winery tour before teaching you how to pair food and wine like a pro! Explore the fundamental interactions between wine and food components: saltiness, sweetness, acidity, umami, chili heat, and fat. Participants will leave this experience feeling more confident in pairing wine with food while having fun tasting it!
