St. James Cheese + Wine Pairing Class
Casey Foote from St. James Cheese will join us on Wednesday, March 28 for a new and exciting class featuring Austrian and German wines paired with a small farm sourced artisan cheeses. We'll be comparing styles, grapes, laws, aromas, flavors and pairings! And while Casey's been practicing his accent and bringing in new, hard to pronounce cheeses, I've been searching for great selections from both of these classic wine producing countries and have come up an excitingly diverse lineup. While there will be one German Riesling, which is one of the best cheese pairing wines on the planet, we'll also showcase a Gruner Veltliner, Pinot Noir, a Sparkling Zweigelt Rose and a red Zwiegelt as well as at least one German beer! Neither of us has ever presented a Germanic wine and cheese class so we are really excited about this one!! This class is at Swirl on Wednesday, March 28th, 6:30pm. Reservations and prepayment are required, limited to 25 participants. $25, call for reservations, 504.304.0635.
