The Experience

The Wine & Tasting on October 4, 2023, will start with a brief, yet insightful introduction to the art of pairing wine and cheese, and then features an hors d’oeuvre that highlights that cheese. Our expert sommelier, David McPhillips, with years of experience under his belt, will speak to the importance of balance between the components – the acidity of the wine, the creaminess of the cheese, and how they complement each other.

Each wine has been carefully selected from various West Coast regions and are paired with artisanal cheese that complement its flavor profile. Chef Sam will present hors d’oeuvres that feature each cheese for you to taste with its accompanying wine.
