Since the opening of Pairings Portland in 2013, we've offered a Game of Thrones Flight for each season of the show.
How does this work?
We pair wines to characters from the show using the following:
1--by writing our version of adjectives to describe each of a series of characters,
2--then pairing a wine to each character thru pairing the wine to the adjectives.
Example: Lets say we describe a character as "bold, mischievous, and unpredictable". Our job is then to show you how to taste those words. How? The easy way is chew the wine like food for a few seconds, then after swallowing the wine, breathe thru your mouth. It'll make all the flavors of the wine pop (kind of like happens when you're eating). When you taste that way, we're suggesting your odds go way up of being able to taste bold, mischievous and unpredictible (and therefore the words used to describe the character). This creative playing lets us pair all kinds of nerdy, geeky, mostly natural wines to pretty much anything you have a head or heart connection to that you can describe with adjectives.
Got it? Regardless, come check it out! It's great wine and awesome fun!!
$25 for the 8 wine tasting! Stop in anytime from Wednesday August 9th thru Saturday August 12th. If you've got a group or 8 or more and want to do this tasting outside the dates offered, let us know. We make it avaialbe that way throughout August.
After the first couple of weeks of Season 7 (starts July 16th), we'll decide on the 8 characters to pair to for this wine tasting flight!
