Pairin' with Karen
Each session will occur on a select Saturday or Sunday of the month (see below for the calendar of dates) and lasting around 90min. In that timeframe, Karen will be working intimately with groups of up to eight folks at a time, all coming together to learn more about pairing and receive personalized one-on-one attention on understanding their palates more.
The experience will be divided into two forms of pairing exploration. The first half will be an exploration of the wine alone followed by a fun open and relaxed pairing where you will be presented with a selection of small food items all chosen for their “pair-ability” with the varietal being focused on.
Since all items are designed to pair with any of the wines you’ll be enjoying, you will be testing which pair best according to your palate. This means you’ll be exploring your own personal sensitivity to tannin, acid and fruit in order to learn what works best for you. In the second part of the experience, Karen will be presenting you with several bites she’s built using at least one of the food items you began with so that you have a pairable foundation to explore further from!
