Pairings with Recent Wine Releases

Hazelnut Crusted Scallops – Aubade

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

Poached Trout with Lemon Butter Sauce – Aubade

This elegant, classic trout is poached in a court-bouillon (flavored poaching liquid) of white wine, carrots, and herbs. The traditional lemon butter sauce is nicely complemented by our Audition Roussanne/Marsanne blend.

Roasted Vegetables with Roasted Pepper Hummus – Mourvedre Rose

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 our Mourvèdre Rosé for a pre-dinner treat.

Turkey, Cranberry, Bacon & Brie Sandwiches – Grenache Rose

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

Smoked Gouda Mushroom Quesadilla – Grenache Rose

The perfect entree for an outdoor lunch or picnic, the slightly spicy smokiness of these quesadillas is perfectly complimented by the fruit-forward Rosé of Grenache.

Bespoke Ruben Sandwich – Grenache

This recipe started with a March wine club release party back in 2017 when we did a full Irish boiled dinner. After the event we had several pounds of Corned Beef leftovers… Turns out these Rubens are the best thing ever! Especially with our Grenache.
