What is your experience level with wines? (e.g. I am just starting out; I enjoy wine with most dinners; I am very familiar with most varietals and know their typical characteristics; I am an expert with a large wine cellar)
I have a fairly high experience level. My wife and I have 1000+ bottles of wine from all over the world. We have traveled in several European countries in 2012 wine tasting along the way.
What is your experience with eating gourmet foods? (e.g. I have not had much experience; I enjoy it when available; I eat at the French Laundry every chance that I get)
My wife is a good cook and we enjoy eating in. We have been to the French Laundry, but thought that it was too precocious. We enjoy foods from around the world.
How familiar are you with wine paring? (e.g. I don't drink wine with a meal; I don't pair I just open the closest bottle; I put thought into what wine will go with the meal; my cellar allows me to pick the perfect wine for every meal)
I do like to try to pick wines that are appropriate for a given meal.
What is you experience with cooking gourmet dinners? (e.g. I have no experience; I have limited experience but want to give it a try; I cook as often as possible)
I don't cook, but my wife does.
Are you a potential host of a gourmet food and fine wine dinner? (e.g. no thanks I just want to participate in the dinners; I might be willing to give it a try; I love to cook and plan on hosting events)
My wife and I plan on hosting several events with interesting food and wine pairings. We can seat 12 in one table, so plan on joining us at one of our events.
My wife and I love to have a great bottle of wine with friends. We have an extensive library of wine (1000+ bottles) and enjoy them with dinner. We have been wine tasting throughout Calif. and parts of Europe. Come join our culinary adventure.
