Spring Perfect Pairings 2017

Day light savings time begins Sunday, you know what that means?  Spring is right around the corner – yippee!  Spring signals a different kind of cooking at our house.  We leave behind long-simmered braises and savory dishes for lighter and easy to make dishes with fresh seasonal ingredients.

In our 2017 Spring Perfect Pairings you’ll find 6 mouth-watering wine pairings to help you unleash your inner foodie and celebrate the spring season.

I know you’re going to love the Substance Cabernet paired with Grilled Steak and the Spring Celebration Salad.  Eric says this Washington Cab is full bodied and perfectly layered with black cassis, dark cherry, and tobacco making it perfect with your favorite steak .  The Celebration salad showcases the early spring vegetables of asparagus, sugar snap pea, and radishes. I think you’ll agree this pairing will help you celebrate spring in style.

If you like a bright, crisp, Riesling you’ll love the stunner pairing we’ve put together of Dr. Konstantin Frank Dry Resiling paired with Seared Scallop Salad and Caramelized Pineapple Vinaigrette.  I’m dreaming about this pairing – it’s that good!
