The Wine and Food Affair is a culinary tour of the wine country, which is our favorite event of the year. This event, coordinated by the Wine Road is an annual event the first weekend of November, featuring over 100 wineries . Each winery opens their doors, pairing one of their favorite wines with a tapas plate of food. It has become somewhat of a “one upmanship” between the wineries, tempting your palate with a perfect pairing and melding of flavors. This is a great way to explore the Sonoma wine growing regions. For us, it is one of the primary ways we promote our small garagiste winery.
2018 Will be our 6th year participating in this event.
Our previous years include:
2013 Julia Childs Triple Chocolate Moose with our Syrah port style dessert wine
2014 Wild boar and lamb sausages with our Lauterbach Cellars Estate Syrah
2015 Duck Sliders with our Lauterbach Cellars Estate Noir
2016 Bacon Brownies with our Best of Class 2013 Lauterbach Cellars Syrah port style dessert wine
2017 Seafood Croquettes with our first release of 2015 Lauterbach Cellars Noir de Noir Pinot Noir
This year we will be featuring lamb meatballs paired with our 2009 Syrah.
