Pairings
  • 🧀

The floral notes, quince and apricot on the mid palate of this lively white blend will compliment the best of your hard cheese selection or mountain side raclette.  One bottle rarely is enough.

  • 🦃

Roasted chicken or turkey.  Salt & pepper rub. This wine.

  • 🍲

Seared garlic, butter, parsely, and fresh linguini with clams, shrimp and their requisite residual sand will keep these corks popping.
