Summer Wine Pairings

July 3rd, 2015

I guess it’s the July 4th holiday – yesterday it was summer wine reading, today it’s summer wine pairings. [level-members]

On the Serious Eats site, Maryse Chevriere walks us through great combinations for some of summer’s great food: lobster rolls, burgers, and grilled sausage among them.

Our favorite might be her suggestions for pairings with picnic charcuterie and cheese. Demi-sec Chenin Blancs from the Loire are a great choice, but slightly fizzy Vinho Verde or Txakolina are an even better suggestion.

See the full article here for her range of pairing suggestions and some great ideas to share with your customers.
