On September 13, Legal Sea Foods in Park Square will host a wine dinner featuring a selection of German estate grown wines carefully selected by the brand’s wine expert and German importer, Derek Vinnicombe. Today, Germany is one of the world’s largest producers of pinot noir and is responsible for over 30 percent of red wines – attributed from the region’s ideal climate and soils needed for this varietal. The four-plus-course wine dinner will showcase a variety of both sweet and dry styles of red and white grape varieties.
Vinnicombe is a veteran wine expert who puts all his passion behind brining awareness of the finer wines from Germany by exporting the best products directly from their German estates. A mission and passion created by family traditions, Vinnicombe continues to spread the appreciation and reveals the versatility German wines have to offer, especially when paired with fine cuisine.
Legal Sea Foods will team up with Vinnicombe to host an exclusive four-plus-course dinner featuring signature cuisine paired with his selections from the winery’s collection of German wines. The menu will be presented as follows in Park Square’s 10,000 bottle wine cellar:
