Planning your Picnic

Wine tastes even better when enjoyed with good company and good food!

The wines for our tasting will pair with a wide range of foods, so feel free to bring whatever you like to picnic on best.  However, below are a few pairing recommendations that you can consider including in your basket to enhance your wine tasting experience:

Wine #1: Albariño
Our first wine is a delicious and refreshing white wine from Spain!
With great acidity and tangy fruit, it is great with seafood and lighter fare.

Soft goat cheese or Burrata
Ceviche
Sushi

Wine #2: Rosé
Classic dry Rosé from the south of France is a dream for food pairing.
Excellent with flavorful cheeses, charcuterie and salads.

Feta cheese
Prosciutto or duck confit

With its red fruit profile and fuller body, Grenache is an easy drinking wine and a friend of many foodies.
Perfect with spicy or smoky cuisine and heartier dishes.

Aged gouda or cheddar

BBQ pork

Wine #4: Carignan
This hearty grape has bold, beautiful dark berry flavors and nice tannins to boot.
