Grab the last of the summer tomatoes and transport yourself back to early August with this Chilled Soup. Served with either Rosé or Vermentino, this pairing illustrates the ability of food & wine, like music, to enliven memories of time and place.
When we discovered this recipe, we were amazed at how wine-friendly it was. While Chenin Blanc won us over, the flavors in this grilled salad also pair nicely with Rosé and lighter-styled Merlots. This is a summertime must-do.
The crowded field of Rosé cries out for leadership and direction. The Rosés from this Provence Chateau may be the best place to start. Check out this four course lunch we enjoyed with their wines.
Salade Niçoise – the Provençal salad of tuna, egg, potatoes and haricots verts. Surprisingly, the salad pairs with a number of varietals, but not without some cautions. Check it out.
Summer means lighter wines, lighter fare and fast preparations. Vermentino and Shrimp Scampi deliver all of that. Check out the details in this post.
The wine world is awash with Rosé, Rosato (Italy) and Rosado (Portugal and Spanish-speaking countries). How do we make sense of this bounty of riches???
Join us on a short tour of some of the noteworthy wines of the South of France . . . and a dish called Les Farcis. Yes, St-Tropez and le Lavandou are beautiful, but this food and wine pairing is the Provence that resonates with us.
