Jackson’s Steakhouse is proud to present “POP! A Sparkling Wine and Food Event,” on Thursday, March 9, at 5:30 p.m.
Sparkling wine is the classic wine choice for parties and celebrations, it’s true. But if you ask people who’ve been in the wine business what their “desert island” wine would be—the wine they could see themselves drinking for the rest of their life—the answer is almost invariably a sparkling wine. The reason is simple: Sparkling wines—Champagne, Prosecco, Rose —are not just great party wines, they’re also the most versatile wines for pairing with food according to most master wine sommeliers. Additionally, sparkling wines, are a fantastic choice for occasions where they can be savored. It is this, that serves as the inspiration for the event. Chef Irv Miller has created a special menu for the evening in celebration of all things sparkling. In addition, we will be having award winning pianist, John Ripley as our musical entertainment for the night!
