Wine Pairings: OUR WEEKLY SUMMER STAPLES
Each week, Wine Specialist Sarah Pierre brings you suggestions to complement your PeachDish meals. Sarah is one of the owners at 3 Parks Wine Shop in Glenwood Park, Atlanta. She paired up with the team of The Shed at Glenwood and The Pig and The Pearl and opened 3 Parks in 2013. Prior to opening the store, she spent most of her career working and managing notable restaurants in Atlanta and New York City. Sarah selects all of the wines that are offered at 3 Parks Wine Shop and also assists in pairing wines for local events and dinners throughout Atlanta.
Chicken Fundida with Güero Chilies & Squash
Pair with: Rosé - A Latin inspired dish such as this one needs a wine with a kick. Try a Spanish Rosé from Rioja. Suggestion: Muga Rosado, Rioja, Spain
Summer Squash, Basil & Corn Risotto
Pair with: Italian Chardonnay - It only makes sense when pairing wine to go to the source of the dish. Risotto originated in Northern Italy, so to Italy we will go. The creamy risotto and the sweet summer squash & corn will only be enhanced with a glass of Chardonnay. Buon appetito! Suggestion: Tenuta di Nozzole Le Bruniche Chardonnay, Toscana, Italy
Grass-Fed Cheeseburgers with Caramelized Onions & Roasted Zucchini Sticks
Pair with: Barbera - Since we’re pan searing these burger patties and adding the element of caramelized onions (which lend a bit of sweetness), we don’t need to go as big as the classic Zinfandel burger pairing. An Italian Barbera will do the trick for this American classic! Suggestion: Michele Chiarlo Barbera d’Asti, Piedmont, Italy
