Hi Everyone! Welcome to my blog!

A little about me: I live in Falls Church, VA, with my husband, Dr. Grape Pairings (aka Dr. GP). I love cooking and going to some of the amazing wineries and restaurants that the DMV area has to offer.

I have always loved food, and I have always loved wine, but I have always loved them separately. It wasn’t until recently that I realized how well food and wine go together. Now, rarely do I cook a meal without a wine in mind, or visa versa. For about a year, I have instagrammed many food and wine pictures of meals that I have cooked or ordered (instagram @grapepairings). Many of you has asked me about where I found my recipes, where I buy my wine, or why I put the two together. This blog is the answer to those questions.

I have no professional training in anything that I write or do on my blog. I do not claim to be a chef, sommelier, or photographer. In fact, most of my pictures are taken on my iPhone without any filters. I realize that they do not look professional, but I do not claim to be a professional. This is just sharing what I know! Everything I cook, post, and pair are based off of my own research.If you have any recommendations, suggestions, questions, or comments, please let me know on the contact page! I look forward to hearing from all of you! Until then, Cheers and Bon Appetit!

Christmas Dinner 2015 German sausages, sauerkraut, laugenbrochen, roasted potatoes, green beans. I couldn’t decide what to drink, so there is both a glass of white and red by my plate. Not a good decision in hindsight…
