This week SOHO travels to Alsace, France, for flight night on Wednesday, September 9.
Renowned for its white wines, such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer, Alsace is a distinctive French region due to the German influence found in its wine and food. Each of the wines SOHO will showcase this week come from the Maison Trimbach winery, which has been producing wine in Alsace since 1626. SOHO's Chef Joe has tapped into the unique flavors of the Alsace region to create tapas to complement each varietal. The following wines and tapas will be available on SOHO’s menu through September 15.
2007 Maison Trimbach Riesling
Grilled veal sausages served with sauerkraut, salt pork and red bliss potatoes
2006 Maison Trimbach Gewurztraminer
Tarte flambe with crème fraiche, bacon and caramelized onions
2006 Maison Trimbach Pinot Blanc

Guests can sample each wine by purchasing the flight ($17 for three three-ounce tastings and a cheese plate). Or, you may pair a glass of wine with a tapas plate for $12. Of course, the wines and tapas are available individually as well ($9/glass and $6/tapas).
See you soon!
