While taking a stroll through downtown Healdsburg, we decided to pop into Dry Creek Kitchen and have a bite at the bar. Imagine our delight when we saw that our 2010 Floodgate Vineyard Pinot Noir was being featured in the fourth course of the Chef's tasting menu. The pairing was created by Chef de Cuisine, Dustin Valett, and Sommelier, Drew Munro, is delicious.
The pairing is: Crispy pork belly with a saffron roasted pepper piperade, parsley relish, black garlic with the 2010 Floodgate Vineyard Pinot Noir
Alas, it was eaten before a photo was taken so when we are there next, we'll get a photo for you. Or, if you're in town, stop by Dry Creek Kitchen and let us know what you think of the pairing.
