What type of wine pairs best with pork or beef at dinner, and what type goes best with a chocolate dessert? 

K-Staters and wine aficionados in Wichita, Kansas, recently learned more about wines during an exclusive event, sampling a variety of wines from California’s Amador County that were paired perfectly with appetizers, dinner and dessert. 

The Wichita Area K-State Alumni Club’s 2016 wine tasting and dinner took place Feb. 5 at the Airport DoubleTree Hotel and featured Guy Bower, host of The Good Life on 1330 AM KNSS, and Chris Leamy, a winemaker with Terra d’Oro Winery, along with K-State Alumni Association guests Gavin Hargrave ’08, ’10, associate director of alumni programs, and Michelle Elkins ’87, associate director of awards and special events. Proceeds from the evening’s donation drawings and auction supported the Wichita Area K-State Alumni Club’s scholarship fund.
