Celebrate the Expressionist movement with wine. Enjoy a guided tour of Expressionism in Germany and France: From Van Gogh to Kandinsky, led by art historian and educator Mary Lenihan. Then embark on an oenophilic journey both classic and sauvage, beginning in rich Burgundy, heading south to the hot colors of Van Gogh's Provence, returning to the colder climes of the German-Burgundy border, and reaching a spectacular finale in Bordeaux, with a top Cru Classé. The four wines are paired with cheeses and artisanal regional specialties.
Great sushi calls for a great beer or sake. Why not open a bottle of something that’s got the best of both worlds? Poochi Poochi is a sparkling sake that has enough sugar to pair well with spicy foods but is dryer than a typical sake. Yet this wine is delicate and pairs well with the nuanced flavors of a grand sushi blow out.
Who says red wine can’t be paired with an egg salad sandwich? Not us. We recommend a Beaujolais to go with the humble egg salad sandwich. It’s fruity and light with low acid. That’s important because the sulfur from the eggs can become overwhelming if paired with a wine that’s too acidic. Beaujolais is light bodied. It’s not uncommon to chill a Beaujolais, even though it’s a red wine. Surprised? Stick with us, we’ll help you navigate the unexpected and the curve balls this crazy, nutty, fancy-pants wine world can throw at you.
