This cathartic night of levity, tasty wine and hopefully insightful conversation is part of Pairings Portland 4 Year One-Day-At-A-Time Plan.
Creative wIne pairings and tarot first aid are on the menu at Pairings Portland Wine Shop & Bar on February 24th from 5-9 pm.
We're pairing up wines to 6 versions of how one might be feeling in our present state of things in the good ole US of A. One day, we posted on Facebook, asking for 3 adjectives describing ones emotional "state of being". 6 of those answers were each given a "name", and are having a wine paired to them for this event.
Each wine is specifically paired so you can taste the adjective description. We offer a quick demonstration on the spot of how to do this at your request!
The 6 "States of Being" with their descriptions are:
panicked, protective, revolutionary
OH, I'VE BEEN DRINKING 5 CUPS OF COFFEE A DAY!
Dowsett Aunties Riesling Celilo Vineyard
energized, argumentative, on edge
Falkenstein Spatburgunder Trocken
complacent, detached, yet slightly agitated
TOO PRIVILEGED FOR OUR OWN GOOD
Jasper Sisco Judy & The Dream Pinot Noir
distracted, introspective, aloof
MORE ALCOHOL PLEASE
Skerk Ograde--AND--Charles Smith Broncho Malbec
determined, resilient, strong
JUST TRY AND FUCK WITH ME
Muriel Rioja Gran Reserva '05
amused, amazed, confused
AN AMUSE DOUCHE
MVX Fusion Moscato Peach 187 ml
