Recipes that go with wine at Wine & Food Affair

A Wine & Food Affair on the Wine Road is Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 3 and 4. The weekend of wine and food pairing is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day in the Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys in Northern Sonoma County. All the wineries participating will prepare a favorite winery recipe to sample, along with their wine. The recipes are included in a "Tasting along the Wine Road" cookbook that ticket holders will receive, along with a glass and wristband, upon check-in. Designated drivers will be given a different color wristband and they will not be served wine. The fee is $70 for the weekend, $50 for Sunday only and $30 for designated drivers. No tickets available at the door. Pre-sales only at www.wineroad.com.
