Usually the potlucks at Pairings Portland have an educational theme. This one is different. It's pure celebration! A celebration of 1 year since this location (Pairings Portland Wine Shop) opened its doors (1 year to the day actually).
How it'll work?
You bring a dish that you would make when celebrating something. Anything! Please have the ingredients in your dish written out on a little card. Salad, snack, appetizer, entree, dessert. Whatever, it's all good! The food is out for all to share.
To invite some pairing fun, I've chosen 5 favorite 'pairing wines' that I consistently go to for being overall food friendly wines. They will be poured till done starting at 6. You can go back & forth and taste away or just have a glass of this, then a glass of that, ...
The 5 wines?
-Kuentz Bas Cremant d'Alsace
-Punta Crena Lumassina
-Domaine Chanrion Cotes de Brouilly
-Correggia Barbera d'Alba
-Bottex Bugey Cerdon 'La Cueille'
$25 per person for the flow of wine.
A little bit more:
1. At 7, 8 & 9 there will be a drawing (all in attendance are entered) for free tickets to future events.
2. Whosever dish is voted to be the favorite of the night, will receive a free membership to 'The Pairings Club' ($100 value).
* All are asked to sign a waiver to be responsible for your eating choices since the food is coming from lots of folks like yourself.
