White Winter Wine Pairings at Public House Chattanooga

Part of what makes wine such an enjoyable experience is that every bottle tells a story. Any given vintage and variety gains its flavors from the smallest details— the soil, the frequency of rain, the amount of sunshine, the temperatures during the growing season, the way it is casked and aged and blended. What’s equally delightful is that we can experience wines differently season to season simply by pairing them with the foods mother nature favors at different times of year. While reds usually get more play than chilled vintages during the colder months, these whites on our menu pair perfec...

However, the five years as a whole have been extremel...
