Spaghetti with Mussels and Clams

The “perfect” pairing for Picpoul blanc is probably a classic Oysters Rockefeller… but since none of us here really like Oysters all that much we’re suggesting you try this less “rich” dish of pasta and shellfish in a white wine sauce based on our 2016 Picpoul blanc.

Chicken Tagine with Apricots and Almonds

A “tagine” is a earthen-ware cooking pot used in Northern African cuisine.  We use a more contemporary version of this cooking method – a cast iron skillet – to create this slightly-sweet, Moroccan-spiced chicken dish that pairs beautifully with our 2016 Viognier.

Turkey, Cranberry, Bacon & Brie Sandwiches

The perfect use for left over Turkey on the day after Thanksgiving, and the perfect pairing for La Vie Dansante’s 2016 Rosé of Grenache!

Hazelnut Crusted Scallops

Tender scallops crusted with a crispy mixture of panko and chopped hazelnuts in a cream sauce based on the 2015 Overture White Cuvee. A flavor combination sure to make you close your eyes and sigh.

Roasted Vegetables with Roasted Pepper Hummus

A twist on the summer classic “Hummus and Veggies”, roasting the vegetables ads a certain “je ne sais quoi”, perhaps elegance, to a simple snack.  Pair with the 2016 Mourvèdre Rosé for a pre-dinner treat.

Mediterranean Grilled Chicken

Bursting with briney deliciousness from the Capers, Kalamata Olives, and Feta Cheese, this bold summer chicken dish pairs perfectly with our 2014 Prelude GSM Blend. Best served outside surrounded by friends!
