Merroir/Terroir at Island Creek Oyster Bar

Description

Tom Schlesinger-Guidelli, Island Creek Oyster Bar sommelier and general manager, and Shore Gregory, executive director of Island Creek Oyster Farm and co-owner of Island Creek Oyster Bar, will lead us through a tasting of various wines and oysters to explore the flavor characteristics that result from their regions of origin. Just as the terroir of a wine (the geography, geology, and climate of its origin) is indicative of its flavor, the merroir of an oyster (its marine surroundings) will greatly influence its taste. When those terroir and merroir flavors align, the perfect pairing is born.
