How do we Aproach Wine and Food Pairings?
At Gracie’s, one of our featured dinner choices is the five or seven-course chef’s tasting menu. Our guests can enhance their dining experience with the addition of wines selected specifically to complement the food. Wine and food pairings are an excellent way to try new flavor combinations, and the results can take your dining experience to a new level of enjoyment.
What comes first, though? There is no right or wrong way to start the process. We are all in favor of planning a meal around a great bottle of wine. However, Gracie’s Beverage Director, Jason Wessel (who is also the featured artist on many of the photos on this blog) prefers to start with the food. In this video from Steer Films, Jason discusses his approach to wine and food pairings.
