Sweet & Spicy Glazed Chicken

Parir with Gerard Bertrand 'Orange Gold' | Languedoc-Roussillon, France ($26.99) - This is a skin contact blend of Chardonnay, Grenache Blanc and Viognier that brings volume to the blend and Marsanne, Mauzac and Muscat that enrich the aromatic complexity of the wine. Certified Organic and Biodynamic. The flavors of candied orange peel, citrus, and white flowers will play very nicely with the sweet glaze and ginger notes of the dish. 

 

 

Spiced Lamb Sliders

Pair with Skouras 'Saint George' Agiorgitiko | Nemea, Greece ($19.99) - Flavors of blackberries, mulberries, raspberries, ripe strawberries, a touch of aniseed, cinnamon, fine tannins, round and velvety mouth. Aged in used French barriques for 12 months. The body of this wine is a perfect match for Lamb and the za'atar potatoes. 

 

 

Coconut Shrimp Cakes

Pair with Berger Gelber Muskateller | Niederösterreich, Austria ($23.99) - Rose water and citrus zest aromas burst from the glass with a slightly spice undertone. This aromatic wine from Austria has everything you need to stand up to the rich creaminess of the coconut and play well with the citrus and herbal notes of the dish. 

 

 

Cilantro Pork & Street Corn

Pair with Mortellito 'Cala Niuru' Rosso | Sicily, Italy ($25.99) - This beautiful rosso is the perfect light, chillable red for hot weather and seasonal summer dishes with a jalapeño kick. 75% Frapatto, adding tart red fruits and herbal notes blended with 25% Nero d'Avola, which brings body, tannins, and a pleasant spiciness. Certified Organic. 

 

 

Garlic Basil Chicken

Pair with Caruso e Minini 'Naturalmente' Catarratto ($22.99) - 100% Catarratto from Sicily, Italy. With flavors of white peach and tropical fruits, this fun and fruity white will be the perfect pairing for sweet, summery chicken or fish dish.

 

 

Caramelized Ginger Salmon

Pair with Florent Cosme 'Grosse Pierre' Vouvray | Loire Valley, France ($25.99) - This pairing is a match made in heaven. Made from 100% Chenin Blanc with aromas of spiced pear and citrus zest. On the palate the wine displays ripe orchard fruit with medium bodied texture that mirrors the richness of coconut, brown sugar, and ginger in the dish, with a crisp, minerally finish to lift the meal. Certified Organic and Biodynamic. 

 

 

Summer Veggie & Chicken Penne


Pair with Zillamina Rosé | Spain ($18.99) - This light, crushable rose is made from organic Monastrell grapes, resulting in flavors of freshly picked strawberries and watermelon, and absolutely tastes like summer. Perfect for poolside sipping or any light dish using seasonal summer veggies. So crisp. So fresh.
