Chicken Breasts with Field Peas & Cornbread
Rosé - There are many times when a glass of Rosé can trump a glass of red or white. In this situation, that is the case. Go for your favorite glass of Pinot Noir Rosé. A couple of my favorites are Stoller Rose from Oregon or Red Car Rose from California.
Japanese Eggplant & Red Pepper Pasta with Capers & Walnuts
Cabernet Franc - Much softer than Cabernet Sauvignon, this red wine has silky tannins and a subtle bit of herbaceousness. It is a great complement to this pasta dish consisting of mildly earthy eggplant and red pepper.
Sauvignon Blanc - Try a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. It can take on the capers in this dish, and it's also a match for the sauteed peppers.
Pork Hot Pot with Long Bean and Gamjajorim
Côtes du Rhône - A grenache based Côtes du Rhône will be medium bodied, have moderate alcohol, and will be a perfect fruit-forward wine partner for this Korean inspired dish. Suggestion: Domaine Mas de Jallon, Côtes du Rhône, France
Viognier - A Viognier from California would be a great match for the ginger and onion based soy sauce glaze. Try Idle Cellars Viognier Sonoma County, California.
Mushroom, Corn, Tomato & White Cheddar Quesadillas
Garnacha - This wine is fresh, and there is a perfect amount of dryness and fruit. A quesadilla and a glass of Spanish Garnacha go hand and hand for your favorite weeknight meal!
Grüner Veltliner - The cilantro-lime sour cream and the sharp cheddar will pair nicely with an Austrian Grüner Veltliner that has similar characteristics like lime and green pepper.
