Wine Tasting Dinners
Enjoy a private wine tasting with a restaurant-quality dining experience in your own home!
Make the most of an assortment, or allow the Chef to create a menu featuring your collection.
Take the worry out of pairing wine with your meals! Chef JoAnna collaborates with her favorite wine consultants to create a one-of-a-kind wine tasting event for you and your guests.
An idea of how this event might go would be:
- ★ Decide what you'd like to taste: just reds, just whites, just sparklings, or a full assortment. Chef JoAnna can make suggestions that cover the range of varietals, or you can assign each guest to bring a bottle.
★ The first course will be an assortment of small bites created especially for the comparison of flavors. You'll discover which wines pair best with the different flavors offered. Booklets will be provided so that each guest can record his or her preferences.
★ The main course will be paired specifically to one or two of your wines.
★ The dessert course will also be paired with a specific wine, such as a sp├дtelese, port, or Champagne.
Speaking of Champagne, if you would like to do something like this, but you're constricted by budget, consider doing a tasting of just sparkling wines, to include Prosecco, Cava, Champagne, and domestic sparkling wines. This would include only the Hors d'Oeuvres, followed by a couple of sweet bites. This is a great activity for bachelorettes, bridal showers, or engagement parties!
You & your guests will enhance your sensory experience by using the Chef's Wine Aroma kit, and learn the language of sommeliers. After this class, you'll be able to hold your own among wine snobs and connoisseurs alike.
Chef is able to provide (for rent) glasses for champagne, all-purpose wine-glasses, water glasses, plus any plating/flatware you require. Chef will guide you to make sure you have everything you need to host a successful food and wine pairing event.
