2010 “Champagne” Dinner
All American Sparkling Wines
and Sustainable Seafood!
I thought it would be cool to feature Sparklers from 5 different growing regions.
It is easy to do all Cali or even all Finger Lakes, but we worked to find a home for 5 completely different styles of American Sparklers on this menu. I chose to go all seafood. Each course makes the wine sing!
Hopefully we'll see ya there.
5 wines from 5 states are paired with 5 all American seafood courses.
