May Day - Vino y Vegan, a Vegan Dinner Wine Pairing Event

Ready for an adventure in quality wine? Ready to taste a completely vegan, plant based menu? Well then join me in Islamorada on Saturday, May 1st for Vino and Vegan (Vino y Vegan) the next luxurious wine pairing offered by Stay Luxurious.





If you joined me for my 7 fishes wine pairing, you know this is a night to remember with quality fresh local seafood and if you partook in the holiday European wine adventure via zoom, you know I love to select award winning wines with a travel theme. Well.....get ready for both.


Sing up and email me Craig@stayluxurious.com


The Wines - Vino

the 5 selected wines

Vino y Vegan will deliver quality award winning wines with all the seleced wines receiving praise from known experts with all of them scoring over 90 pts. Each wine selected was based on the pairing of the tastes and specifically for the country origin of the dish. I even had help from sommeliers. The wines are from Greece, Italy, the US, Argentina, and France for our dessert course. The complete list of wines and their retail value are listed below.


· Sigalas Santorini Assyrtiko 2019 (93 pts) $39.99

· Solosole Vermentino 2019 (92 pts) $19.99

· Cristom Mt. Jefferson Pinot Noir 2018 (94 pts) $38.99

· *Alta Vista Single Vineyard Malbec 2015 (91 / 92 pts) $49.99

· Chateau Guiraud Sauternes 2019 (95 / 96 pts) $49.99


We will discuss the qualities of the wine, the pairing with the dish, and their country or region of origin.


The Cuisine - Vegan


One of my favorite reasons to travel remains the opportunity to experience culture through cuisine. The chance to learn a culture through meals at the dinner table from the food and conversation is something I plan to showcase on May 1st. The complete 5 course menu was created to take us on a journey through Europe and the Americas.


You will not only be surprised the entire menu is vegan (and probably be asking me for the recipes) but hopefully also impressed with the tastes themselves from this inspired (amateur) chef team.


The pairing event starts with appetizer course, followed by a pasta course, and then two dinner selections (mimicking meat courses),followed by a classic dessert.
