Dine in with A-List recipes and pairings

Wine is food and destined for the dinner table. Thoughtful wine pairings can accentuate both the wine and the dish, while creative pairings can introduce unexpected complexities. The best part? Pairing is a skill like any other, and is refined through practice. So, dine and drink. Practice makes perfect.
