COOK’s go-to wine guy Mitch Skwer of Vintage Imports has transported COOK guests to many a nation via his popular wine pairing dinners – Italy, Basque Country, Israel, Argentina, to name a few. This September, he’s all over the map, literally, with a globe-trotting wine pairing dinner, along with Damon Menapace of East Passyunk’s Abruzzo-focused Le Virtù. Damon’s kitchen pedigree is strong, having spent time at Marc Vetri’s Osteria and Alla Spina, as well as Kensington Quarters, where he became known for sourcing from dedicated farmers and producers. Join Mitch and Damon for a wine pairing menu that knows no borders: chilled mussels with soffritto and paprika, paired with Ulacia Blanco Txakolina 2017; Alsatian pizza with caramelized onion and bacon, paired with St. Urbans Hof QBA Riesling 2018; orecchiette with spicy sausage, peperoncino and bitter greens, paired with Marco Salustri Ciligiolo 2016; beef tri-tip with corn, tomato and avocado, paired with Truchard Syrah 2017; and for dessert, apple pie.
