This Month's Wine and Food Pairing spotlights Dunbar Kitchen & Taphouse's "Dunbar Dip" with Joy Wine & Spirits red blend Kivelstadt wine.

Host Rodney Franks had a chance to sit down  with Charles Wessels of Dunbar Kitchen & Taphouse who brought over Dunbar's signature sandwich "The Dunbar Dip."  Carolyn Joy of Joy Wine & Spirits  paired it with a red blend Kivelstadt. Joy Wine & Spirits hosts wine tastings every Wednesday and Saturday.

This is Eats and Beats, the Alfresco Edition, so named by Arvida, which means what? Fresh.  Carolyn Joy from Joy Wine and Spirits anchors our monthly wine and food pairing.

Standing outside the KUVO parking lot with Howard Treppeda's brick oven wood-fired pizza, the pizza were being made and cooked on the spot, and it created quite a stir.  Carolyn's pairing choice for the variety of pizzas Howard cranked out, Scarpetta Timido, a perfect summer rosé for our impromptu garden party.  Listen below!

Our guest chef for the May 2017 edition of KUVO's Wine and Food Pairing is the new chef at Dazzle at Baur's Mario Godoy.  He'll be serving a fresh take on a traditional recipe from his native Jalisco, Mexico.  And sommelier Carolyn Joy has just the match.

Godoy's dish is called "Carnes En Su Jugo."  He'll be serving it at KUVO Night, a benefit for the community jazz radio station on Thursday, May 25 at the new downtown Denver home of Dazzle Jazz, 1512 Curtis St.

Carolyn Joy believes in natural wine.  Natural viticulture, bio-dynamic... It's kind of making the way wine was made a century ago... new again.  Joy, sommelier and proprietor of Joy Wine and Spirits in Denver visits "First Take with Lando and Chavis" monthly.

Joy says there are more than 200 additives used in bulk wine production.  Some additives are natural, like  fish bladder and egg whites.  Some additives are not natural, like "Mega-purple," which adds a deeper crimson to the color of red wine.

In a bag or in a box, summertime wine in Colorado's parks and outdoor concert venues do not involve glass bottles.  Carolyn Joy from Joy Wine & Spirits comes to the rescue with an array of varietals, vintages and accessories for the June edition of KUVO's Wine and Food Pairing on the morning show "First Take with Lando and Chavis."
