At the beginning of March we were invited to a Wine tasting in the Washington DC suburb of Oxon Hill. The location of the event was the Succotash restaurant in a vibrant area of Oxon Hill and not far from Maryland’s newest casino MGM Grand. To read a full review of the delicious, mouth quenching Rias Baixas Albariño wines, read Terry’s March 9th blog, Rias Baixas Albariño: the Next Exotic White Wine.
At Succotash, the presenter of the Albariño wine taste was Mark Oldman, a wine writer who has published several wine books with his most recent being, How to Drink Like a Billionaire. The tasting involved several Albariño wines from the Spanish region of Rias Baixas. Several food bites prepared by the Succotash chef were paired with Albariño wines.
The Succotash restaurant offers a southern style menu including the renowned succotash. Check out these Succotash food photos from the wine tasting.
Perhaps one of the most striking pieces of decor at the restaurant is a baby grand piano that was taken apart and a large portion was repurposed as a decoration.
