Wine Pairing: Dry Creek Kitchen Sommelier Drew Menro recommends the 2009 Freeman Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir.  Freeman strives to make wines of elegance and is able to achieve wines with body and concentrated fruit flavors without high alcohol levels. Their 09 Sonoma Coast Pinot displays brooding flavors of black cherry, plums, and roasted strawberries with hints of mushroom and tobacco. Plus, it has the firm acidity that is needed to match up with the tangy sauerkraut.

In celebration of Epicurean Winter in Healdsburg and the annual Pigs & Pinot event, try this delicious braised pork belly recipe for dinner!

If you are planning a trip to Healdsburg in the next few months (and we encourage you to plan one!), then be sure to take advantage of the Pigs & Pinot Connoisseur Package offered by Hotel Healdsburg.
