Riot-Worthy Dish
Wine Enthusiast editors asked America's 100 Best Wine Restaurants of 2013 "which dish would start a riot if it was taken off the menu?" Their riot-worthy dish is…
"The Acquerello Carnaroli Risotto dish is a standout item. Though the ingredients change seasonally, the current iteration—risotto served with Dungeness crab, Brussels sprouts and Kaffir lime—is a hit."

Perfect Pairing
Paine Farm squab fagotelli with red cabbage and sunchoke, paired with Roagna’s 2005 Pajé Barbaresco, is an ideal wine-and-food marriage.

Wine Events
The “Blind Wine Pairing” experience is a playful exploration through flavors and textures, designed to bring the focus of wine pairing back to the pairing itself.


Wine Enthusiast Magazine announced the third annual issue of America's best wine-centric establishments, and to commemorate the list, WE hosted a rooftop party where we honored this year's recipients and toasted the exploding culture of wine and food.
