It's time again for the Nashville Wine Auctions' annual 'Pairings' event, made up of three days of a truly excessive amount of wine and food. Set for Feb. 26-28, this year things have been changed up a bit, with ten 'Private Vintner Dinners' taking place on the first night in private homes and restaurants around the city, and teaming local chefs with winemakers. That Friday night will see a vintner party at The Rosewall with a silent auction.
But things get interesting at that Saturday night's 'Pairings' dinner at The Rosewall, in which four local chefs are selected to collaborate with well-known out-of-town chefs for a ticketed dinner. This year they have decided to bring all the guest chefs from Brooklyn, New York, and the line-up is pretty intriguing:
- Josh Habiger (Pinewood Social) with Sean Rembold (Reynard)
- Andy Hayes (currently of Moto, but soon to be with upcoming restaurant 5th & Taylor) with Joe Ogrodnek and Walker Stern (Battersby, Dover)
- Andrew Little (Josephine) with Patti Jackson (Delaware and Hudson)
- Mayme Gretsch (Utterly Nashville) with Sam Mason (Oddfellows Ice Cream)
Tickets are $200 per person for the event and can be purchased here.
