Kuri Limari Valley Sauvignon Blanc paired with little cucumber cups filled with a light crab salad. The crunchy green cukes with that bit of crab salad with lime and cilantro….SO GOOD!!
“Creamy Herbed Pasta with a “dash” of Bright Eyed Bird Pinot Grigio in the pasta, a glass in my hand while I’m cooking it, then another glass in my hand while I’m eating it!” – Tanya S.
“Blue cheese bacon dip with Tanglerose Backyard Red :)” Nicole E.
“I’m a midwest girl who loves her beef and bbq…so of course a hearty red wine and anything off the grill, smothered in BBQ sauce!!” – Tiffiny B.
“Does dark chocolate w/ Bentgate’s Cabernet Sauvignon count? ;)” – Cori Strosin
“Moscato and strawberries with balsamic vinegar!” – Christie D.
“My favorite summer pairing makes use of tomatoes fresh from the garden combined with buffalo mozzarella, basil pesto and grilled chicken on a flatbread. The fruity flavors of a Sangiovese-based wine like a Chianti or a Super Tuscan work well with the sweetness of the tomatoes. As a lighter red, it’s great in warmer weather when you’re dining al fresco.” – Denise
