Chicken Breast with Baby Bok Choy & Ginger Broth

Gewurztraminer - A spot-on pairing for Asian dishes, especially when there is an abundance of ginger. When pairing the two, the Gewurztraminer will really showcase the ginger in the dish. Suggestion: Albert Seltz Gewurztraminer, Alsace, France

null

Sautéed Summer Squash & Rice with Sunny Side Up Farm Egg

Cava - Pair a glass of sparkling wine with this dish. A sunny side up runny egg creates a beautiful rich texture when stirred into rice dishes. A crisp sparkling wine will be a great palate cleanser and contrast. Just think...brunch is always accompanied by Champagne or Prosecco, right? Suggestion: Naveran Cava, Penedes, Spain

Eggplant Caponata with Toasted Ciabatta, Arugula & Parmesan

Nero d’Avola - Pair this traditional Italian dish with a Sicilian red. Suggestion: COS Nero di Lupo, Vittoria, Italy

Pan-Seared Catfish with Field Peas & Johnnycakes

Bardolino - An Italian Red blend from the Veneto region is softer in style, which won’t overpower the flaky white fish, but will marry perfectly with the grape tomatoes and touch of sweetness that this dish has. Suggestion: Monte del Fra Bardolino, Veneto, Italy

Sweet Potato Risotto

Sweet Potato Risotto with Parmesan & Nutmeg

Zinfandel - A Zinfandel will complement the sweet potatoes as well as the fall spices in the dish. The fruity flavors and moderate tannins of Zinfandel will blend this meal into a masterpiece. Suggestion: Neal Zinfandel Napa Valley, California

Late Summer Superfood Salad

Rosé - A crisp glass of Provence Rosé paired with this green summer salad is absolutely the way to go. Suggestion: Château Saint Pierre, Provence

Gnocchi with Chicken, Pesto & Snap Beans

Gavi - Also known as Gavi, this Italian white from Piedmont, Italy will be a great partner to the earthy, fresh, and lively pasta dish. Gavi is a light and zesty wine with a pop of lemon that will really complement. It is generally inexpensive, food friendly, and should be enjoyed young. Suggestion: Riva Leone Gavi, Piedmont, Italy

Vermentino - Classic wine rule “what grows together, goes together” is not always perfect, but in this pesto and vermentino case….Perfecto! Bright acidity and citrus aromas are just as unique as pesto. Suggestion: Santadi Villa Solais Vermentino, Sardinia, Italy

Tomato Pie with Vidalia Onion

Tomato Pie with Vidalia Onion & Herbed Chicken Breast

Pinot Grigio- Pair tomato pie with a crisp and acidic Pinot Grigio. The wine will hold its own to the acidity in the tomatoes and showcase the true flavors of the dish. Suggestion: Ornella Molon Pinot Grigio, Venezia DOC, Italy
