Each restaurant will prepare a recipe using pork shoulder meat, usually marinated with a blend of different spices and herbs, and some “summertime” grilling presentation. When you visit the winery during the trail day of the event you will enjoy a wine especially paired with the PORK recipe served using PORK shoulder meat.
