With the summer solstice just a few days away, the season’s most anticipated crop—juicy, flavorful heirloom tomatoes—won’t be far behind. Here, then, are some great ways to enjoy that precious fruit and the ideal wines to sip alongside like Geyser Peak Pinot Grigio.
The lemony flavors of the wine will complement the citrus used in the marinade and won’t overpower the light bodied scallops.
Here’s a delicious recipe submitted by a local fan, Jamie in Napa, CA. It’s an easy, cheesy and zesty dish- perfect with the clean & crisp flavors of Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc.
Now a favorite amongst our Wine Club, this pate is quick, easy and pairs beautifully with full-bodied red wines. Try it with our 2012 Pluto’s Fury Pinot Noir.
A delightful pairing with our newly released 2013 Gewürztraminer. We featured this recipe at our May Club Release Party and it received raved reviews!
The bacon used to wrap this shrimp makes them very versatile and either red or wine friendly. The soft fruit of this shiraz and its tannin strip the palate of the fat from the bacon. The spicy character is perfect with grilled foods and the smoky bacon.
Fennel has a slightly herbal character which matches nicely with the citrus character of the Sauvignon Blanc. The lemony fruit of the wine helps to cleanse the palate of the moderate creaminess of the soup.
Chardonnay can have tropical fruit flavors that match well with the mango salsa when used as a topping for fish or chicken. This can easily add interest to any dish! Use as a dip or a topping for fish or chicken.
