Food and Wine pairing

Our Food and Wine Pairing was held at Reds Midtown Tavern; a beautiful restaurant at the corner of Yonge and Gerrard. We started off with some basic wine knowledge and then a how to pair food and wine tutorial!

Chef Daniel, from Reds Midtown,  prepared three hors d’oeuvres specially for us. These dishes were paired with various wines from Tres Amici.  See the menu and wines below:

1. Santome Pinot Grigio  A fragrance that is elegant and intense, reminding one of ripe peaches and apricots and the exotic fruit of pineapple and mango. In the finish emerge floral scents of white blossoms accompanied by a light mineral note.

2. Blazon – Pinot Noir  This wine creates a lasting impression with substantial flavors and aromas, yet has a delicate palate. Perfectly balanced, medium bodied flavors of black cherry and currant accented with a hint of spiciness. Deliciously smooth, rich, and velvety for a sensational finish.
