I typically don't drink wine. I'll drink it at weddings(free) or I'll drink Botham Vineyards cause I know which of theirs I like. Bloody Marys I'm on my way to have every one in the city. "Craft" cocktails with all the innovated drinks it's fun. With two brothers and a father who like beer I had a destiny to enjoy drinking all different styles. Put then started to grow grapes at home and needed to find a why to use them up. So with the last name Welch first came to mind juice then Wine. Made one batch. Put thought I should getting a better understanding so next year's we can tweak it to make it better and make multiple batches.
Dlux has been having this event called Match-dot-Somm every 1st wednesday of the month for quite sometime now. Where they pair junk food with wine. When I saw that they were having a breakfast food themed one this month. I jumped on it stat since biscuits and gravy hold a dear place in my heart and it usually sells out by the next day since there are only two seating with limited seating but you may luck out if they have cancellations.
Caitlin the Sommelier really does here homework or her job really well. Went to this by myself, which when Caitlin came over to talk about each course pairing it really felt like she was really just talking to me (she technically was but you get my point I'm trying to get across. I hope.) You also get a sheet with pairing info but Caitlin gave more information when she came around and an oppuitnity to ask her questions. One perk I had no idea about was the wine you drank during the pairing you can buy the bottle at a discount rate.
Since Caitlin is helping to open Cento. The next two will be different pairing. One being beer and the other a cocktail pairing. Then back to wine pairings when the new restaurant is off the ground. If you need a date idea, fun night out or more info on wine pairing I highly recommend. I see myself drinking more wine in the future.
