Wine tasting with Finnish licorice
Friday, May 14, 6–8 pm
This extra-special event will have wine expert Mira Vojinovic conduct a wine tasting with a Nordic twist. Experience how the texture and flavors of 4 different wines interact with soft, black licorice made by the Finnish company Panda. A perfect pairing will bring out the best aspects of both the wine and the candy.
Also, get answers to all your wine-related questions, for example:
- What are the reasons behind a harmonious combination between food and wine?
- Is wine pairing subjective to a specific tastes, or are there hard and fast, science-backed rules to be followed?

Members and guests only. Limited to 24 participants. Each participant will receive a bag of Finnish licorice and 3 oz pours of 4 different wines, in addition to appetizer food.
