Chardonnay may not be the traditional go-to for Ahi salad, but, a bit of ageing levels off the acidity, and the velvety texture of the avocado plays off the creamy notes of the Chardonnay. A delicious and luxurious pairing.
This refreshing salad of sweet corn, cherry tomatoes and radishes makes the most of these ingredients while they are in season at the end of summer. It works with anything off the grill on a warm summer night, but makes a quick and easy weeknight meal with pan seared scallops and a glass of Chardonnay.
This is a perfect no cook recipe for those hot summer days when you just can't justify turning on a stove. A chilled sweeter wine such as our Il Raggio del Sole or Simpatica will round out your dining experience.
Delightful Repast shares her recipe for her favorite comfort food, Italian style. A perfect match for our Napa Valley Sangiovese, its dryness and excellent acidity make it very food-friendly and a perfect match for the lasagne's tomatoey meat sauce.
Here is one of my cold-weather favorites. It is hearty, spicy, savory and comforting; ideal to keep in the fridge and warm up after a day of visiting with friends and family or after hours of wrapping followed by seconds of unwrapping. Remember always adjust the spices as you progress and as in all recipes—season to taste! - Mary
Lamb shanks are the quintessential fall comfort food, especially paired with fava beans and a nice Chianti (Sangiovese). It may just be one of the most famous food and wine pairings of all time thanks to Hannibal Lecter!
