PORTLAND, Oregon – (June 11, 2012) – Vitaly and Kimberly Paley let loose every week for their informal Wine Wednesday tradition when they pair flights of wine with food not typically served at the restaurant. “We try to demystify wine with a playful approach,” says Kimberly Paley. “We want our customers to come in each Wednesday and be surprised – from the wines we select to the food pairings.”
Wine Wednesday is offered each week with three flights of individually priced wines and a complimentary “mystery” wine. If guests can guess the varietal and producer of the mystery wine they receive their flight “on the house.” Chef Vitaly Paley enjoys being creative with the food pairings and chooses ingredients and dishes that compliment the wines or reflect the food of the region. Wine Wednesday is available every Wednesday in the bar or dining room from 5:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
