The reason we chose these pairings are because they are our go to for entertaining family and friends; and we would want to share these wines with family and friends as well. These two pairings remind us of summer with the bright bruschetta; and grilling of the tri tip and salad. The bruschetta pairs nicely with the 2016 Westside Farms Chardonnay with the soft creamy notes of the cheese on the bruschetta complimenting the soft baked fruits on the Westside Farms. The dark earth tones and dense fruits from the 2016 McDonald Mountain Pinot Noir compliment the juicy and savory flavors of the Wagyu Tri Tip and Caesar Salad. 1st Course - Bruschetta – paired with Gary Farrell 2016 Westside Farms Chardonnay 2nd Course - Caesar Salad 2nd Course - Journeyman Marinated Wagyu Tri Tip Paired with Gary Farrell 2016 McDonald Mountain Pinot Noir
