Curated food-and-drink experiences and luxurious gifts unite at The Flavor Studio in South Reno. Established by several local food lovers, this unique place brings expertly paired nosh to life with not-so-common wine and spirits for memorable public and private happenings, as well as special gifts this season.
Sake, sushi, and soy sauce tastings. Italian wine with homemade pasta. Tequila alongside gourmet tacos complete with house-made tortillas. With space to accommodate up to 35 people, The Flavor Studio brings creative flair to fine foods, wine and spirits affairs. Celebrating themes that highlight various dishes and drinks makes each event special.
“The food always is something exceptional that you wouldn’t find any place in Reno,” explains Laurel Pine, chef and curator at The Flavor Studio. “What we’re offering is an experience not offered anywhere else in town. We have a great lineup of events coming up that focus on tastes of the season.”
Events rounding out the year include Bubbles and Luxury Appetizers on December 27, which promises to bring together delicious faire and can’t-miss drinks. Pine says The Flavor Studio also is available for private events, for which the team creates experiences specific to the host’s vision. While the calendar still is in the works for 2020, attendees can expect more memorable pairing events and winemaker dinners.
Whether looking for an interesting bottle of wine or basket of delicious wares, Pine and others at The Flavor Studio marshal superb preferences in gift giving.
“We taste everything before we carry it and don’t have anything here that we wouldn’t give to our loved ones,” Pine notes.
Opulent gifts include:
- 2007 Vintage Cava from Spain in a beautiful gift box for $41.99
- Penfold’s “Grandfather” Rare Tawny (minimum average blended age is 20 years), 92 points Robert Parker for $97.99
