In San Francisco, Vinho Verde wines were paired with the Vietnamese cuisine of Chef Rob Lam of Butterfly. Sommelier Eugenio Jardim presented the wines and pairings and educated guests on varietals and wine profiles from Vinho Verde. A full menu can be viewed here. Guests were really floored with how well the wines paired with the complex flavors throughout the menu. Fan favorites included the Cha Ca Thang Long: Turmeric Grilled Catfish with Rice Noodles and Herbs Salad paired with Avesso and Alvarinho wines.

Similarly in New York, Vinho Verde wines were paired with the Malaysian cuisine of Chef Mei Chau of Aux Epices. Sommelier Betsy Ross presented the wines and discussed the different grape varieties and styles present in the Vinho Verde region. Full menu can be viewed here. Again, the versatility of Vinho Verde was on display as each dish proved to pair well with more than one of the wines poured.  Fan favorites included the Sotong Sumbat – stuffed squid with spiced potatoes and spicy sambal sauce paired with two traditional style Vinho Verde blends from different producers.
