What is a Wine Pairing Dinner?
Wine and food matching is the process of pairing food dishes with wine to enhance the dining experience. In many cultures, wine has had a long history of being a staple at the dinner table and in some ways both the wine making and culinary traditions of a region will have evolved together over the years.
This past weekend I had the pleasure of taking part in a Wine Pairing Dinner at The Copper Door in Hayesville, NC.
Copper Door was celebrating their 60th Wine Pairing Dinner with a remix of their very FIRST dinner.
