Join us for a compare and contrast German / Alsatian Wine Dinner

Four courses of Alsatian and German food paired with two wines each to compare and contrast the two regions take on the same wine, or the effect of a wine pairing on a single dish.


Salade Vigneronne
Endive, mixed greens, radish, cornichons, cherry tomatoes,
Gruyere cheese, Gew├╝rztraminer vinaigrette


Paired with Alsatian and German Gew├╝rztraminer


Choucroute Garnie
Mixed sausages, ham, boiled potatoes served with Alsatian sauerkraut

Paired with Alsatian Riesling and a very unusual oaked Riesling
(Oaked Riesling is like Bigfoot; I have heard they exist, but never actually saw one...until now)


Sauerbraten with Spaetzle
Wine marinated, slow cooked beef served over homemade spaetzle

Paired with German Riesling and German Dornfelder



Alsatian Apple Tart
Apple custard tart, served with homemade vanilla ice cream

Paired with German Riesling Spatlese and Auslese
