Vegetarian tapas with wine pairings? This took even us by surprise when our Chef, Joey chose the theme this week! But what a great surprise it is, as vegetarian food often gets a bad rap. There are so many new ways to create cusisine these days that it just follows that SOHO would try something new as well. And yes, we were pleasantly surprised at the delishiousness of these tapas, and even happier when we tried these amazing red wines as pairings! We think you’ll be happy too….

This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday, October 24th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through October 30th.

October Week 4-page-001

First, SOHO will pour a Demarie Barbera d’Alba 2016 from Alba, Piedmont DOC. The winemaker offers,

“Colour is brilliant ruby that tends to become garnet with age. Scent is an an intense fruity bouquet of prune and mulberry with a hint of spice. Flavour is full-bodied and enveloping, its slightly acid flavour does not upset the balance. Dry, fresh and fragrant, this wine lingers on the palate with traces of plum, blackberry and cherry.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Brolio Chianti Classico 2015 from Chianti Classico DOCG. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Intense ruby red colour. Scents of small red fruit, vanilla and liquorice. The mouth shows a complex, but velvety fragrance and a long mineral aftertaste, typical of the territory.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Lacort Tempranillo D.O.C 2014 from Rioja. Notes on the wine,

“Intense ruby red colour. Scents of small red fruit, vanilla and liquorice. The mouth shows a complex, but velvety fragrance and a long mineral aftertaste, typical of the territory.”

SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
