Basic Wine Education: Food & Wine Pairing Basics
Sunday, February 8th
2:30 - 3:30pm 
Do you panic when handed the wine list? Are you intimidated by the Sommelier? Afraid to even try to pronounce ‘sommelier’? The truth is, matching wine and food is easy! We’ll take away the intimidation factor to show you exactly how simple wine and food pairing can be. Using the basic building blocks of weight, intensity, acidity, sweetness, and tannin, we’ll teach you how to choose the perfect wine to accompany any meal! 
 
 
 
Advanced Wine Education: Drinking Green
Sunday, February 22nd
1:30 - 3:30pm
What are sulfur and other chemicals doing in my wine, and what on Earth does the moon have to do with winemaking? Just like with food, we need to think about the liquids we are putting in our bodies.  We'll taste and cover: terms sustainable, organic and biodynamic and it’s relation to wine; regulations for each; vineyard management techniques and wine making practices.
 
 
 
Wine vs. Stein
Wednesday, February 25th
6:30 - 10:00pm
Ninety Acres' Beverage Director Michael Smythe, and Wine Director Brooke Sabel, take their gloves off to start the 2015 battles. At this interactive event they pair respective favorites to a four-course meal prepared by Chef David C. Felton. This year, we begin without the restriction of a specific brewer or winery. Michael and Brooke have full access to our cellar, which means you never know what trick they will pull from their sleeves!

Ninety Acres' Choice of the Month:

"Wine of the Month"

Producer: Domaine Huet
Varietal: CheninBlanc
Vintage: 2007
Country: France
Region: Loire Valley
Appellation: Vouvray
Vineyard: Le Mont
 
History:
Vouvray region has been known to produce incredible Chenin Blanc since at least the 9th century. 
Domaine Huet’s founder, Victor Huët, was a Parisian bistro owner. In 1928 Victor settled to the town of Vouvray in France’s Loire Valley and purchased the first of his great vineyards, Le Haut-Lieu. Gaston understood clearly that quality must come first and starts with great vineyards. He went on to purchase the 8 hectare “Le Mont”, considered his best vineyard and the region’s “Grand Cru” vineyard in 1957.
 
All grapes are harvested by hand, which enables picking by successive tries. Each tri being a separate pass by the workers through the vineyard, ensuring only the best bunches of ripest grapes.

"Beer of the Month"

Beer:Quad
 
Brewer:Weyerbacher
 
Location: Easton, PA
 
Style:  Belgian Quadrupel
 
A.B.V. 8%
 
Description
Ale rich with complexity and flavor.  Brown sugar and dark dried fruits (think raisins, dates and figs) dominate this complex ale. Meant to be sipped, I recommend a snifter for this ale to help welcome the assault on your senses. If you have the will power, aging this beer for a few months or longer will show off its true potential.
 
Pairing
Enjoy with Ninety Acres Pan Roasted 14 oz Grass Fed Bone in Strip Steak or our Cheese plate
