Wines' Wine Picks Win

Emilywineswinner In last week's battle to see what paired best with food- wine, beer, or cocktails, wine came out the winner. In particular, the wines chosen by Emily Wines, Master Sommelier at Fifth Floor Restaurant in San Francisco, beat out the beer and cocktails pairings by other local experts as voted on by the diners in attendance.

I was rooting for cocktails, but from all accounts it was a close race. Congratulations to Ms. Wines. My spies who attended spoke:

"It was excellent-  Friendly, well organized, great service."

"The food was divine, spirit selections from all three experts were spot on, and the company around the table perfect. Everyone seemed to have a wonderful time, I know I did. Wine took the evening, Emily's pairings were awesome. However, Dave (beer) and Jacques were right there with her, I think only a point or two ever separated them."

I also got word that the next "Three on Five" competition will take place Wednesday, December 17th. There will likely be different pairing experts competing this time- sake? scotch? champagne? We'll know closer to the event date.
