Do you like Bacon? There is nothing that quite compares to the smell of sizzling bacon in a frying pan. If you are a bacon fan, the Wild Bacon Wine Trail May 2 & 3 is the place for you! The Hermann Wine Trail has selected Bacon as the featured ingredient in our next popular wine and food pairing events.
When we first called the event, Wild Bacon Wine Trail, ticket sales soared! We almost sold out the event last year so we anticipate the event selling out this year. Bacon is a universally worshiped food, and in our book, the bomb. Right up there with chocolate.
The Hermann Wine Trail wineries have once again created some savory and delicious food pairings to complement their wines. They spend hours in their kitchens, frying bacon and trying new recipes to come up with just the right match for their wines. Tasting bacon dishes and sipping wine in Hermann Wine Country. It’s a tough job but someone has to do it.
Here’s the 2015 Wild Bacon Wine Trail menu:
- Adam Puchta
Grilled Bacon-Cheddar Bratwurst, paired with Save a Rack wines
Garden Fresh BLT Salad, paired with Jubilee White
- Dierberg Star Lane
Arugula, Bacon, and Gruyere Bread Pudding, paired with Sauvignon Blanc

Bacon Super Bowls, paired with Strawberry Wine
