As you may have heard, Prescription Vineyards crashed the South Beach Food & Wine Festival’s Steak & Whiskey party hosted by Chef Michael Symon. We demonstrated how our Clarksburg Chardonnay pairs beautifully with steak. Our higher acidity (more than most California Chardonnays), cuts through the fat of steak while its lush mouthfeel matches the rich texture of the meat.
We had one chef comment that our Alexander Valley Cabernet was a beautiful compliment to the steaks, which interacts more like a sauce, while our Chardonnay was a refreshing palate cleanser between bites. He compared it to eating sushi and refreshing between bites with pickled ginger.
“We were excited to be approached at the next day’s Wine Spectator Grand Trade Tasting by people asking if we were the Chardonnay that went great with steak,” said Director of Sales Greg Moore. “When we confessed, they said people were talking about what a great experience it was.” We’re still grinning.
Below we share a photo gallery of the night with pics from us and WorldRedEye.com.
