Wine and Pie Pairings from Snowbirds Vintners
Created specifically to pair easily with food, Snowbirds Vintners has three wine and holiday menu pairing suggestions to inspire you this fall.
For white wine drinkers, try Snowbirds Vintners 2016 Grüner Veltliner from the Lake Chelan AVA, Washginton. The perfect balance of crisp and bright, with tropical notes of pineapple peel, citrus flower, and sweet celery, it will pair with everything from creamy polenta and pears with gorgonzola, sweet potato and gruyere cakes, to a plum and cream fruit tart.
If you’re an all day, rosé fan, try Snowbirds Vintners 2016 Rhone-style Rosé. Shimmering salmon in color, with juicy aromas of wild strawberries, stone fruits, and white pepper, it pairs well with everything from barbecued ribs, to seafood salad, smoked corn and queso fresco toasts, to lemon meringue pie.
For red wine lovers, Snowbirds 2013 Merlot from Monterey County is fruit forward, with flavors of dark berries, plum, and black cherries, as well as just a hint of spice box, earth, and vanilla. This makes is a great pairing partner for everything from a green goddess salad, to pasta Puttanesca, rack of lamb, as well as a chocolate pecan pie.
