Thanksgiving is in 4 days and Christmas right around the corner and we are not only busy planning holiday dinners, parties and weddings, but looking forward to our 2009 wine dinner calendar. Coho Restaurant is going to kick off our first 2009 wine dinner with a focus on Spain on Friday, January 23rd. (Of course we are ringing in the New Year with a sparkling wine dinner on the 31st of December!) We will enjoy 8 courses and 7 Spanish wines and end with a wonderful 1927 Spanish Sherry! We are working on the final wine pairings on Tuesday and will post the menu shortly. Other ideas for 2009 include a Japanese-inspired meal with sushi and sake, Italian, Greek and Portuguese. Mediterranean food is always one of my favorites and their wines are such great food wines. Please let us know if you have a favorite wine maker or cuisine that we should highlight as part of our wine dinners.
