Farmhand Alsatian Wine Pairing Menu

In-PersonMission, San Francisco


Banquet (20+ Guests)
french, californian
Local, Organic
In France, a couple of wine regions that get all the glory - in fact, you'd think that Burgundy and Bordeaux were the only two places that make great wine. But there is so much great wine all across the country, and we'd like to focus on one of our favorite regions, Alsace. Alsace is a small area in the northeast of France that has changed hands several times between its current country and Germany. Because of this, there's a strong German influence in both the food and the wine. This means amazing sausages, charcuterie, cheeses and really delicious white wines. This meal will be complete with five courses, wine pairings, and maybe a few surprises tossed in for good measure.
