We are so excited to welcome Yvonne Jones, Sommelier and wine consultant from Heritage Wine Cellars as she takes us on a tour of Italy with wine and food pairings.
Come have a blast learning about some wonderful Italian varietals and small bites that pair nicely with these wines. Wine and food pairing is an intricate art that requires a keen understanding of the flavors and textures of both. Come learn the basics to start you on your journey of finding what combinations work best for your palate.
Wine tastings at The Joyful Gourmet are a lot of fun – we’ll sample 6 wines, have some small bites (not every wine will have a pairing) to learn about food pairings, then end with time to enjoy a full pour of your favorite and mingle. Sommelier & Wine Consultant from Heritage Wine Cellars, Yvonne Jones, will host this event.
This will not be a full meal, so we recommend making a 5 or 530pm reservation at one of the MANY terrific restaurants in downtown Libertyville and be here at 7!
Wines featured at the tasting will be available for purchase by the bottle or case at a discount – these will be prices lower than you can get anywhere, and some amazing unusual wines that typically fall into the $30-70 range.
