Wine Tastings and Food Pairings to Go

Vineyard 29, the St. Helena, California, winery, is bringing the wine-tasting and food-pairing experience to your home with its new service, On the Road. Vineyard 29’s director of hospitality and executive chef Austin Gallion will prepare a four-course tasting menu paired with its limited-production wines in your own home for up to 20 guests. Gallion brings the food, wines, glassware, and staff to your kitchen and during the course of the meal informs guests of the nuances of vineyard’s wines. The chef’s signature dishes include a cool lobster salad, which he pairs with the 2008 Vineyard 29 Estate Sauvignon Blanc, followed by a Kobe strip steak with brussels sprouts and bacon served with the 2007 Vineyard 29 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. The On the Road service is offered throughout the U.S. with a minimum purchase of 10 cases of wine, which range from about $7,500 to $27,000. (707.963.9292)
