Although our Club has an emphasis on wine education, sometimes we need to celebrate, unwind, and extend our “education” to the pleasurable pursuit of pairing food and wine.
Please join IWAGY for a relaxing but stimulating afternoon at our first event of 2019.We will meet at Locust Grove in Poughkeepsie, where there is plenty of parking, a nice atmosphere, and more, where we’ll be adding something that doesn’t fit with our usual wine tastings: a bit of food!
At this event we will offer specific foods paired with wines that we feel are their ideal match (or close to that, see below).We’ll start with 3 light hors d’oeuvre with a delicious Cava, and then move on to a structured pairing of 2 plates of savory small items matched to 5 wines, and a final plate with 3 sweets to accompany two dessert wines.This isn’t intended to be a meal, but if you arrive not ravenous, we guarantee you’ll be satisfied.Here are some of our event’s highlights:
First Plate Two cheeses paired with 2 different wines
Second Plate More substantial foods (some served hot), each with its own wine “partner”, including Gilbert Picq Chablis 2017 (France) and Scavino Barolo 2014 (Italy).
Third Plate 2 delicious dessert offerings including a maple pot de creme, each paired with sweet wines. There’ll be a bit of chocolate on that plate, too!Our final wine will be the Dow 2012 Late-Bottled Vintage Port. Because we are producing this event ourselves, we are unable to substitute items to accommodate dietary restrictions.We have planned an alternative to the one meat item, however. Reservations will be limited to the first 48 received. Seating is truly limited. Reserve early to guarantee your place.
