Here's a great wine tasting event coming up at Pappas Bros.
Their only seated tasting of the year will offer a guided tour of the theory and process of pairing food with wine. Learn how to think and taste like a pro! Styles from crisp, zingy Sauvignon Blanc to rich, buttery Chardonnay are recommended with seafood, but why? You can taste the answer. Is beef better with an uncomplicated red or a more complex wine? Discover for yourself how a white wine can perfectly complement red meat. Our wine staff will teach you the rules and when to bend them.
