Everyone loves fried chicken, and why not? It's crunchy, salty, juicy, utterly satisfying and, believe it or not, pairs beautifully with wine! Come taste for yourself as we pair everyone's favorite chicken dish with wines from around the world beginning with Champagne, the instant modern classic.
We will explore both white and red wine pairings, searching for the ultimate gastronomic marriage of flavor, texture and satisfaction. Dive into five unique pairings and forget about everything else in your life for the next hour and a half!
Christophe Bakunas has worked two and half decades in all facets of the wine and spirits world from owning/running a wine bar, producing wines and spirits in three wineries/distilleries on the West Coast to distributing alcohol nationwide as well as in Chicago. Christophe's passion for flavor and sharing knowledge is as strong today as it was 20 years ago. "The greatest gift the wine industry can give is a human awakening to the pleasure of sharing and exploring."
