Discover the Magic of Wine & Food Pairings

  • Oct 15, 2020
  • By The Vineyard Vixen

Wine and food have long been BFFs. Immerse yourself in the art of wine and food pairing to let your taste buds explore everything from the classic can't go wrong combinations to exotic flavor mashups that just might blow your mind.

 

If you've been a regular wine country visitor over the last few years, you probably noticed one growing trend, there are more wine & food tasting experiences than ever before.

The impetus for the introduction of this experience is really a chapter right out of the restaurant industry where wine accentuates the dining experience- and more and more of you wanting to spend additional time to relaxing during your winery visit.

The lite bites no doubt help accentuate the wine tasting experience, but if you book one of the heavier pairings such as J Vineyards' Legacy on the Terrace Tasting, you can indulge while solving another tough decision, where to have lunch? With a wine & food pairing, you get the best of both worlds without breaking a sweat!

 

Local Insider's Tip

If you plan on including a wine tasting & food pairing experience on your itinerary, note that these types of experiences typically take around 90-minutes to two hours. They are also one of the most popular types of experiences year round, making availability limited at times.

If you are traveling during peak wine country tourism season (September and October), we recommend that you book reservations for your wine & food experiences first, then plan the rest of your itinerary around them.
