“In a truly perfect pairing there is a seamlessness between the wine and the food,” says Zimmerman. “The food elevates the wine, and the wine helps elaborate and explain the food.”

Perfect Pairing
The Herbfarm serves a 9-course prix fixe dinner of seasonal foods, and its menu changes 21 times each year. While no dish is repeated, the coriander-crusted Oregon albacore tuna was a standout.

Wine Events
We offer several dozen opportunities to sample the world’s finest wines by the glass, including 2001 and 1998 Château d’Yquem, 1993 Pajzos Tokaji Esszencia, a trio of Chambers Rosewood Muscats including the 100-point Rare, made with 100-year-old components, and a tasting comparison of great Champagnes, including Krug Grande Cuvée, Dom Pérignon and Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame.


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.
