You know what pairs well with wine? Everything.
But to discover what truly pairs perfectly with a bottle of red or a bottle of white, skip the trip to wine country and head to a favorite modern boutique with a vintage twist.
Frances, in conjunction with local juggernaut Postino WineCafé, hosts After Hours, an adults-only event featuring wine tastings and tips. Experts from the Upward Projects flagship restaurant, which has three Valley locations and even more sister spin-offs, will be on-hand to discuss their wine program, palate and preference, from what goes best with that California pinot noir to what you should serve with a Spanish tempranillo. During the meet-up, Frances offers 20 percent discounts and giveaways, while local guitarist Henry Rivera provides live music.
Wine and wind down from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, February 20, at 10 West Camelback Road in the Medlock Plaza. Call 602-279-5467 or visit www.francesvintage.com/events/after-hours-event.
