Everyone seems to enjoy Leek and Potato Soup: hearty and soulful, but with a subdued flavor profile. As such, it calls for a wine pairing that’s contrasting in style. Select Cali Chardonnays and White Burgundies deliver on that.
‘Tis the season to recommend wines for the Holidays. We believe this post is “more complete” than the recommendations provided by your local newspaper or wine merchant.
Franciacorta, Italy’s great sparkling wine, is a versatile pairing partner. Especially when it is enjoyed in its backyard – the shores of beautiful Lake Como!
Summer means lighter wines, lighter fare and fast preparations. Vermentino and Shrimp Scampi deliver all of that. Check out the details in this post.
With dominant flavors such as anchovy, garlic and capers in this killer sauce, what’s the right pairing: Pinot Gris, Verdicchio or Chardonnay??? Tune in.
Salmon, Tuna, Swordfish – all great, but don’t you want to grill something else for a change? Try Black Cod . . . especially with this Pea Sauce from a great chef that may be new to you. While you’re at it, make room for Vouvray on your wine rack – a versatile, delicious white wine!
With the onset of cold, wet weather, comfort foods command your attention. This excellent soup recipe will likely move to your go-to list, especially when paired with Chenin Blanc . . . a varietal that beat out some other likely candidates!
The Holidays are nearing, so I thought I’d share with you my recommendations for your special dinners this Season. Cheers!!!
Summer’s on its way. Grilled Snapper is always a winner, but this recipe . . . with Savenniéres . . . a rich Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley . . . takes it to another level. You gotta try this pairing!
Cast aside your dietary concerns about cream sauces and try this recipe from Julia Child. This dish, and a beautiful Cali Chardonnay like the Patz & Hall, will make for an elegant dining experience.
