Rich, smoky, spicy...and that's just the wine we're talking about! Red wine and red meat are ideal partners when it comes to aromas, flavors and textures. Learn some of the basics of food and wine pairing when you join us for an evening of Seeing Red: Red Wine and Red Meat. We'll taste a variety of tasty meat morsels and wash them down with some delicious, antioxidant-rich red wine.
