In late 2012, Cathedral Ridge Winery paired up with Sur La Table for a wine pairing class with chef Ben Witton. Ben helped to create a beautiful menu pairing with Cathedral Ridge Chardonnay Reserve, Viognier, Rusty Red, Syrah, and Dampier Vineyard Pinot Noir. This wine pack is still available at a fabulous price (with free shipping), and we have a few more recipe pairing suggestions for you. Cheers!
With the Dampier Pinot Noir, try: Leek and Pecorino Pizza.
With the viognier, try Viognier-Steamed Clams with Bacon and Parsnips.
For Sunday brunch, pair Chardonnay Reserve with an Asparagus and Bok Choy Frittata.
While it’s always a treat to go out to dinner, Valentine’s Day is one of the few nights that I’d prefer to stay in. Sometimes the prix-fixe menus and forced romantic atmosphere can feel stuffy. Staying in can still be a major indulgence with the right ingredients…I plan on trying the following menu this Thursday (thanks, Martha!):
My husband and I will whip this up together while rocking out to some good records and sipping Rusty Red. This 100% Syrah is the perfect match for the pepper-crusted meat and veggies. It’s also the “Wine of the Month” at Cathedral Ridge Winery, so it’s a great time to stock up!
