Pairing pleasures

Gourmet food will be paired with wine Thursday at "Taste of Terroir," Livermore Valley's Wine and Food Experience, being held at the Palm Event Center in Pleasanton.

Judges will sample pairings presented by 16 of the region's wineries and their restaurant partners before awarding Most Innovative Pairing, Judges' Best and a new honor: Best Classic Pairing. Guests will have an opportunity to taste all of the pairings, bid on luxurious silent auction items, and cast a vote in the People's Choice competition.

The event will take place from 6-8 p.m. and tickets are $75 per person, which includes the tastings, live music by Motel Sheets, and a decadent dessert and cheese spread sponsored by US Foodservice and paired with Livermore Valley ports. Funds raised will benefit the Livermore Valley Winegrowers Association. Visit
