TWC The Perfect Pairing: Bread and Wine

September 10, 2022 - 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Pairing wine with food is a lifelong pursuit, with many do’s and don’ts. In general, it comes down to personal preference and a goal of complementary flavors that balance and enhance your experience. Over the years, wine experts focused on meats, cheeses, and dishes, but they never thought to look at another staple of any global cuisine – bread.  So, we thought it would be fun to look at the bread and find some delicious pairings.
