This Week's Pairing & Pouring
Because of its popularity, we decided to bring back Texas Tamale Company's gourmet-quality tamales at our wine pairing and pouring Friday night. Over the last 30 years the business has grown from a single tamale cart to a proud Texas-based company with a national fan base, selling more than 3 million tamales every year. Using the original lard-free and gluten-free masa recipe, the pork, beef, chicken, and black bean varieties are well-seasoned, finely textured, and incredibly addictive.
Our pairings include Fenn Valley favorites and a brand new in-store offering. Fenn Valley Nouveau 2022 is a dry red wine, the first wine of the new 2021 vintage. Expect a fruity wine, full of berry flavors with a smooth finish. It is perfect to sip in front of the fireplace during these cold winter months. Fenn Valley Pinot Grigio is a clean, crisp dry white wine made in the classic Italian style. Fermented in stainless steel, the delicate fruit characters derived solely from the ripe berries are enhanced allowing apple and peach flavors to become forward on the palate with no lingering aftertaste. Canella Mimosa Arancia Rossa (Red Orange Mimosa) comes from the union of sparkling wine of its own production with the juice of the best Sicilian red quality oranges – Moro, Tarocco and Sanguinello. The juice of these three qualities is dosed in order to obtain a perfect balance between fragrance, aroma and color and then it is mixed with the sparkling wine to obtain a fresh and thirst-quenching cocktail.
We look forward to seeing you from 5-8 p.m.
