Chicken Breast with Green Onion and Roasted Potato

Chicken Breast with Roasted Green Onions & Potatoes

Gigondas - A simple fix doesn't mean you have to go with a basic wine. Pick a wine with some complexity and finesse. A grenache-based red from the Rhone Valley will have the just the right amount of tannin without overpowering the dish. Suggestion: Château Saint Cosme Gigondas, Rhône Valley, France

null

Green Wheat Pilaf with Sweet Potato & Gruyere

Greco di Tufo - Freekeh, the green wheat grain, will flavor the dish to have a unique nutty characteristic. Pair this unique flavor profile with a one-of-a-kind wine! With its rare aromas of nectarines, sage, and white pepper flavors, this wine will cut through the sweetness in the sweet potatoes all while elevating this dish to new heights! Suggestion: Pietracupa Greco di Tufo, Campania, Italy

null

Chicken Paprikash with Egg Noodles

Dry Furmint - Why not pair a classic dry Hungarian white wine with this mouthwatering Hungarian pasta dish? Its acidity and minerality are present immediately on the palate followed by fresh white fruit, pear, apple, spice, and floral notes. The wine is extremely aromatic and will be so pleasurable with this dish. Suggestion: Tokaj Hétszőlő Dry Furmint, Tokaj, Hungary

null

Arugula Salad with Roasted Mushrooms & Turnips

Pinot Noir - A winter salad with roasted mushroom can always count on Pinot Noir for a perfect and delicate pairing. Willamette Valley fruit will have that earthy and forest driven flavor. Be on the lookout for wines from McMinnville where they will have more of these particular characteristics. Suggestion: Trisaetum Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon

Beef Taco with Red Cabbage Slaw

Beef Tacos with Red Cabbage Slaw, Radish & Lime

Garnacha - Pair these PeachDish tacos with a cellar temperature glass of Garnacha from Spain. Generally speaking, it’s the perfect pairing for tacos due to its resistance to spice (jalapenos and seasonings), citrus (lime & lime), cheese, herbs and vegetables (cilantro, cabbage, onions). The PeachDish twist to these beef tacos is the addition of cranberries incorporated with the slaw...coincidentally a flavor profile of Garnacha! Suggestion: Príncipe de Viana Garnacha Roble, Navarra, Spain

Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding

Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding Dessert Kit

Port - A small glass of Tawny Port would be the perfect addition to this dessert. Suggestion: Croft Tawny Port

Balsamic-Onion Pizza with Arugula

Balsamic-Onion Pizza with Gruyere & Arugula

Sauvignon Blanc - Acidic zesty Sauvignon Blanc pairs nicely with balsamic reductions as well as the Gruyere cheese. The sweetness you’ll find in a California Sauvignon Blanc will be perfect with the sweet caramelized onions. Suggestion: SCV Sauvignon Blanc, Sonoma County, CA

Hearty Minestrone

Hearty Minestrone with Beef, Kale, and White Beans

Sangiovese - With this twist of an Italian classic, go with an Italian wine! With thyme, oregano, and basil, this dish craves a more acidic wine. Sangiovese will do just the trick. Suggestion: TorCalvano, Montepulciano, Chianti, Tuscany, Italy

null

SuperFood Salad

Beaujolais - A red wine that screams superfood. Beaujolais is a light, fresh red wine, 100% Gamay, with bright fruit - cherry, pomegranate, red berry, and juicy acidity. A glass of Beaujolais will only mirror the salad, not overpower it. Suggestion: Château Pizay, Morgon, France Rosé - It is never too cold outside to enjoy a glass of Rosé. I promise! Especially when it is the perfect pairing for a SuperFood Salad. Suggestion: Elk Cove Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon
