The event is produced by the publishers of Wine Country International ® magazine. Earlier in the year they also produce the Denver International Wine Competition which receives more than 500 entries from producers around the world. Only the Gold Medal winners are selected to be poured at TheTaste of Elegance.
The "PAISINE" Competition pairs Gold Medal wines from The Denver
International Wine Competition, with some of America's most creative chefs.
While the event is sometimes referred to as "Iron Chef ™" meets wine,
participating chefs have no secret ingredient. They are assigned two gold
medal wines (white & red) just one week before the competition. Chef's are
provided with sample bottles to taste and develop their custom paired
On event day, the participating chefs will create custom paired dishes,
served in appetizer portions. Representatives from the assigned gold medal
winery will pour wine samples alongside the chef's food table.
A panel of notable food and wine critics/experts will taste each culinary
creation with its assigned wine. They select the "Best Chef" and "Most
Creative" Chef winners.
All consumer attendees also get to cast their votes for the "People's
Choice" award. A valuable prize is awarded.
