Want a Free Dinner for Two With Newton Vineyard and Gramercy Tavern Next Tuesday Night? Tell Us Your Favorite Wine Pairing

What do New York’s Gramercy Tavern, Chicago’s The Publican and San Francisco’s Epic Roasthouse have in common? In addition to being standout farm to table restaurants in their respective cities, they — among other exceptional restaurants from across the country — are participating in our Newton Vineyard Wine Pairing Contest.

From March 11 to July 16, Newton Vineyard will host a series of wine dinners and tastings that showcase their unfiltered wines. The best part: you could win — not one, but two — seats at the table. All you have to do is submit an enthusiastic description of your favorite food and wine pairing on our contest page.

First up is Gramercy Tavern on March 11. In case you needed any more convincing to apply, New Yorkers, here’s what’s on the menu for next Tuesday:

Ruby red shrimp with sweet potato, farro and Brussels sprouts
Unfiltered Chardonnay 2011

Mushroom custard with sunchokes, trout roe and pickled burdock
Unfiltered Cab 2011

Pork bolognese with tagliatelle, fennel and preserved lemon
