“Food-Friendly” Wines

This week’s blog from City Vino discusses the topic of “food-friendly” wines. What makes a wine “food-friendly”? According to Dave McIntyre of the Washington Post, in his article titled “What does it mean for a wine to be ‘food-friendly’? Here’s what to look for.”, Dave states “A truly food-friendly wine plays nicely with a wide variety of foods, from sweet to savory to spicy, from meat to fish to veggies — not a unicorn wine for a ‘perfect pairing’ with a specific dish.”

Miscast

This past weekend, City Vino and Fredericksburg Théâtre Ensemble (FTE) joined forces for the 2nd Voices and Vines Signature Series. This is a fun-filled evening in the style of a musical cabaret, with a wine tasting component between songs. The first of the series was back in March, where we focused on blind tasting, because we had not attempted this kind of show before and really didn’t know how it would be received. Having such a fun experience, the next topic chosen was “miscast,” with the idea of a singer choosing a song that was completely out of character; eg. Justin Yates who sang “Fast Car,” by Tracy Chapman. So much fun!
