Wine Tasting, Wine Pairing at Brisa Fine Mexican Restaurant in Uptown Houston

Prepare to enjoy a night at Uptown's finest Mexican restaurant like none other. On September 12, 2009 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM, Brisa will feature the Eleven-Fifty wines from Argentina alongside Mazatlan Style Ceviche and Queso Cilantro.

  • Ceviche
    fresh gulf shrimp and scallops prepared Mazatlan style and finished with a pico de gallo vinagrette
  • Queso Cilantro
    pork skin crusted Chihuahua cheese over roasted poblano tomatillo sauce, topped with fresh cilantro and toasted sesame seeds
  • Ikal 1150 Chardonnay 2007
    An elegant wine prepared in the old-world style. The crisp clean finish and absence of butteryness make this wine an excellent companion to Ceviche.
  • Ikal 1150 Malbec 2007
    A very complex and rustic wine make this Malbec the perfect companion to the spicy foods that dominate regional Mexican cuisine.
  • Ikal 1150 Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
    Complexity and bigness make this high-altitude Cab stand out from the crowd. The lingering, sweet tannins on the finish are to be savored.
