Pago on 9th’s 13th Annual Pumpkin Tasting Menu

From Pago on 9th:

Pago on 9th
13th Annual Pumpkin Tasting Menu 
+ Orange Wine Pairing 


Friday, October 28 – Monday, October 31, 2022
(Full Menu + Pumpkin Menu available)
Food $45 + Wine Pairings $34 

For the thirteenth year in a row, we are offering orange wine pairings for all the gourd goodness chef has created. Orange wines refer to white grape varietals that have been fermented on their grape skins, which gives the wine its orange or amber color. I assure you no oranges were harmed (or added) in this winemaking style. What you get is a bit more texture/body and depth than its white wine counterpart. Personally, I love orange wines year-round, but fall reminds me of their importance. ~ Scott Evans
