We get asked this question a lot. Why are we having a Wild Bacon Wine Trail? Our answer is always the same. Why not!
The Hermann Wine Trail has zeroed in on some pretty successful wine and food pairing events, and the Wild Bacon Wine Trail has become as popular as the Chocolate Wine Trail. Chocolate and wine are a natural. And who doesn’t like bacon? So why not pair bacon and wine together.
We don’t just put a piece of bacon on a plate for you to chomp down on. Although, there’s nothing wrong with eating slices of crispy bacon and drinking wine. The wineries actually create dishes featuring bacon as a main ingredient and pair that with one of their wines. So it truely is a wine and food experience.
It’s hard to write about bacon and not salivate. Can you imagine cooking bacon for 1000-1200 people? It’s just an ingredient but still…..
Here’s the menu for the Wild Bacon Wine Trail May 7 & 8:
- Adam Puchta
Caramelized Onion, Bacon & Spinach Pizza, paired with Desire
Bacon & Spinach Quiche, paired with Jubilee White
