Dutton-Goldfield Introduces Wine-and-Sushi Pairings

SushiWineWine may not be the first beverage that comes to mind when serving sushi. When it is, the wine typically conjured is Champagne because of its refreshing mouthfeel.

But at Dutton-Goldfield Winery in Sebastopol, Calif., a new wine pairing experience has been introduced for winery visitors that takes food-and-sushi pairing to a whole new level: Single-Vineyard Wines & Sushi.

This tasting experience, and its vegan counterpart, joins other seated tasting options at the winery, including Beast & Pinot, and Wine & Cheese.

The Single-Vineyard Wines & Sushi experience includes four delectable bites of sushi that have been paired with four of Dutton-Goldfield’s single-vineyard wines to demonstrate how different flavors complement each other. The pairing changes seasonally with the releases of new wines.

The current pairings include:

  • The bright Chileno Valley Vineyard Riesling from Marin County with a veggie dragon roll that includes tempura yam, mango and avocado.
  • The Angel Camp Vineyard Pinot Noir from Anderson Valley with an Alaska roll featuring salmon.
  • The silky Fox Den Vineyard Pinot Noir from the Green Valley area of Russian River Valley with unagi maki.
  • The rich Rued Vineyard Chardonnay, also from Green Valley, with a buttery Hamachi and lemon zest.

The pairing plate is rounded out with a Japanese salad with miso-ginger dressing. A delectable vegan option of each of the pairings also is available, featuring Japanese eggplant, shiitake mushroom and fresh tofu rolls.

The Single-Vineyard Wines & Sushi tasting is available Wednesdays through Saturdays for $40 per person at the winery’s tasting room in Sebastopol. All tasting experiences may be booked by advance appointment online or via telephone.

Dutton-Goldfield Winery is the partnership of grape grower Steve Dutton and winemaker Dan Goldfield. The winery began in 1998 when those long-time colleagues and friends recognized a shared vision — to craft wines that express the personalities of their vineyards, and which they’d enjoy drinking at their own dinner tables.

Yes, including with sushi.
