Pairings Food & Wine Market

     "What is a Meritage wine?"  I asked at Pairings, in Eden Prairie, MN.  I was at Dave's mercy for choosing a bottle, but with his proper guidance I landed upon a wonderful wine that was enjoyed by many at the California Wine Tasting party I attended last evening.  A Meritage wine is "high-end", can not be a mass-marketed wine, a Me'nage a' Trois of certain grapes...Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot.  Chosen, was the Hart's Desire  , a meritage that seduced the senses!

At Pairings, they believe in putting the right things together.  The food is fresh, flavorful, and can be paired with a wine or beer of choice from the attatched wine market.  There are events, tastings, and classes.  Saturday nights offer live music on the patio.  6001 Shady Oak Road, Minnetonka, MN
