Wine and Walnuts

A blog about eating, drinking, cooking and reading in the not so Deep South

Hello there, dear readers.

This is a quick post to call your attention to something I’ve just launched here on the blog that I’d like to invite you to sign up for. It’s a little food and wine pairing e-course I’ve created, totally free of course, that will be sent directly to your e-mail inbox. Simply enter your e-mail address in the form to the right. 

See that form on the top right of the blog there?  The one just under the “You Know You Want It” heading? Yep, that’s the one.

What it is:

You’ll receive a total of 6 easy and fun wine “lessons,” one each on the 6 major grape varietals, delivered to your e-mail in-box every 4-5 days.  Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Riesling, then Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Here’s how each lesson will break down:

 • Flavor profile of the wine
 • Foods and flavors that pair well with that wine
 • A recipe specifically chosen to pair with that wine type
 • A list of widely available and value-priced brands or producers of that wine type

Why These Six Grapes?

The reason I’m covering these six grapes, or wine varietals, among the hundreds of grape varieties out there is because these six are the foundation, and understanding them in the beginning of your wine journey is going to make everything else make a lot more sense going forward.   

(And if you’re farther along in your wine journey, I invite you to sign up anyway, because there will be other useful information, plus food pairing suggestions and recipes!)

So there ya have it, dear readers.  Feel free to sign up for your e-mail mini-course today. And by the way, there will be no homework, unless you count trying the wine from each week’s lesson “homework.”  ; )
