A short while ago, the Corvallis Headquarters of The Oregon Wine Blog paired a Sokol Blosser Meditrina with the maple bacon bar from the Portland institution that is Voodoo Doughnuts.
For family reasons, I must leave the Pacific Northwest next month and return home to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania for a week. In addition to being known for having the greatest football team in the history of the world, Pittsburgh is known for the Primanti Brothers sandwich.
And so I wonder: am I able to combine two of my favorite reasons for having been born with tastebuds? Can I pair a Northwest wine with a Primanti's sandwich? A Primanti's sandwich is made by taking the best Italian bread in the new world, from Mancini's and creating a masterpiece by combining shredded cabbage, tomato, french fries, and capicola (my choice) between the two slices of Italian heaven.
My question, what Northwest winery makes a wine that can stand up to, and accentuate this Steel City work of pure genius?
