Perfect Pairings

Janesville Country Club, RCHS partner for Valentine’s Day gourmet food and wine pairing event

Janesville, WI — Discover which wines to pair with different foods at Perfect Pairings: A Valentine’s Day Gourmet Food and Wine event. With food and wines provided by the Janesville Country Club (JCC) at the Rock County Historical Society’s (RCHS) Tallman Carriage House, guests will learn while tasting their way through the evening.

Pork belly paired with Justin Malbec and seared scallops paired with Duckhorn Chardonnay are just a few of the five hors d’ oeuvres and six wines featured for this evening of tasting and sipping.

Chef Joe Adkinson of the JCC will prepare the food, while the pairings will be from the new JCC wine portfolio, which will be updated in February.  Jayme Braatz, general manager, will explain why each wine is chosen to pair with each of the different dishes.

“The Janesville Country Club’s team has years of expertise in food and wine, while the Historical Society’s Tallman Carriage House is an ideal venue for this type of event,” said RCHS Executive Director Tim Maahs. “We’re continuing our history of partnering with local businesses to provide a new and different experience.”
