Shrimp & Grits

Shrimp & Grits

Rose Pinot noir - A Pinot Noir, the go-to food wine, is among the most popular wines in the world. Now imagine rich cheese grits with a glass of Pinot Noir Rosé. Yes please! Why rose? It will have the acidity of a white wine and the fruit characteristics of a red. It can have all of that while not overwhelming delicate shrimp! Suggestion: Stoller Rose Willamette Valley, Oregon

null

Spiced Red Lentils with Flatbread & Greens

Grenache Blanc - Cotes du Rhone Blanc or most white blends from the South of France will work for this pairing. A blend of predominantly Grenache Blanc, this crisp white wine is perfect for this Middle Eastern flavored dish. Grenache Blanc is a neutral white wine known for its ability to pair well food. Suggestion: Domaine du Prince Costieres de Nimes Blanc, Rhone, France

null

Creamy Egg Noodles with Mushrooms & Poppy Seeds

Morellino di Scansano - This young, fresh, food friendly Tuscan Red wine will be a great pairing for this dish. There was a time when Morellino, a blend of mostly Sangiovese, was considered a farmer’s red wine but many years later it's becoming recognized for its quality and likeability. For this dish, while echoing the tartness of the sour cream, this wine also demonstrates floral aromas, dried herbs, and berry notes also having a nice juicy texture for this creamy pasta. Suggestion: Doga delle Clavule Morellino di Scansano, Tuscany, Italy

null

Glazed Pork Chops with Grits & Greens

Red Burgundy/French Pinot Noir - Classic pairing for pork chops. Coupled with sauteed greens, you’re in for a treat. Suggestion: Domaine Chanson La Bourgogne Pinot Noir, Burgundy, France

null

Chicken Breast with Braised Cabbage & Apricot

Merlot - You’ll appreciate a nice glass of Merlot with this dish. This ripe, fruity, juicy red wine tends to work well with dishes that have a stand-out fruit component. Suggestion: Justin Vineyards & Winery Merlot, Paso Robles, CA

Viognier - This aromatic, slightly floral, slightly sweet white wine will really enhance and showcase the apricot as well as the marjoram. Suggestion: Idle Cellars Viognier Kick Ranch Vineyard, Sonoma, California

null

Hunter’s Chicken with Creamy Polenta & Fresh Oregano

Nero d'Avola - When selecting a red to pair with chicken, go with a red a touch lighter in body, with nice acidity and soft tannins. Same goes for tomatoes! This Sicilian, fruity, spicy, earthy, dark-hued red is exactly that. Suggestion: Tasca D’Almerita Lamuri Nero D'Avola

null

Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon with Almond Pilaf & Glazed Baby Turnips

Pinot Noir - The perfect match for a salmon filet, especially the ever-so-amazing Sockeye Salmon! Suggestion: Van Duzer Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon

Herbed Bistro Filet with Lentils and Carrots

Herbed Bistro Filet with Lentils & Carrots

Petit Verdot - A full bodied red wine with a big, rich fruit, and soft tannins. Suggestion: Browne Petite Verdot, Columbia Valley, WA

SuperFood Fiesta Bowl

SuperFood Fiesta Bowl

Zinfandel - Opt out of selecting an old vine Zinfandel which tends to be much dryer and full bodied. Grab a lighter, everyday drinking style Zinfandel - the wines have an affinity for chipotle and smoked flavors. Suggestion: Turley Juvenile Zinfandel, California

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
