Venison Bourguignon

Fall and winter bring a change to heartier, more rustic fare and the bigger wines that complement them.  In Provincial cooking that means getting closer to the land with stews made of root vegetables and wild game.  Try this venison stew paired with our 2014 Syrah.

Julia Child’s Bouillabaisse

Ask ten french chefs to define the quintessential Bouillabaisse and you’ll get 11 different answers so we’ve decided to defer to “The French Chef” herself, Julia Child.  Pair this wonderful dish with La Vie Dansante’s 2015 Roussanne.

Hazelnut Crusted Scallops

Tender scallops crusted with a crispy mixture of panko and chopped hazelnuts in a cream sauce based on the 2015 Overture. 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!

Grilled Leg of Lamb with Feta-Mint Butter and Sun-Dried Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

A decidedly Mediterranean flavor permeates this complex dish.  The lamb is marinated in La Vie Dansante Wines 2013 Rehearsal while the two sauces comingle in the finished preparation.
