Cinco de Mayo Wine + Taco Pairings

Happy Cinco de Mayo, my friends!

Yes I know, it is almost sacrilege to speak of another libation on this day other than tequila + beer – am I right?  But you know me, and well…you know I love to pair wine to just about anything on the planet, so I went there.  WINE paired to TACOS, mis amigos!  In case you missed my segment with good friend and owner of Pajarito Restaurant in St Paul, Tyge Nelson, on the Jason Show this week on Fox 9 — here’s a recap of what I paired to these delicious tacos!!

Soter ‘North Valley’ Pinot Noir Rosé ~  Willamette Valley, Oregon paired to Tennessee Hot Chicken Tacos

Mantlerhof Grüner Veltliner ~ Kremstal, Austria paired to Fish Tacos

McPherson Pinot Noir ~ Victoria, Australia and Canned Field Recordings Pinot Noir ~ Paso Robles, CA with Braised Kale Vegetarian Tacos

Gramercy Cellars ‘Third Man’ Grenache ~ Columbia Valley, WA paired with Pork Canitas Tacos

  • Leslee did a fabulous job in putting together an exquisite wine tasting event for our Maestro’s Circle. These top donors expect the highest level of sophistication from the Minnesota Orchestra and Leslee delivered. Not only did she speak eloquently about the wines served, but she arranged for fantastic cheese pairings and even etched wine glasses with our logo. It was a memorable event and I would proudly work with Leslee any time. Scott Mays, Advancement Officer
