Breaking More Wine and Food Pairing Rules

Blackberries & Wine
Hey, remember last week when I got all rebellious and broke my wine pairing rule of ‘red wines pair with dark colored foods’? Well, this week the wild blackberries started ripening so now I’m breaking the other part of that rule. White wine really can go with a dark food.

Especially if that dark food is a batch of wild blackberries still warm from the sun! Our Whittenburg is the perfect compliment to these delicious berries.  The sweetness in the berries and the wine match well and the berries really bring out the flavor of the wine.

Blackberries & WineWe are loaded with wild blackberries around here right now, so if you don’t have a source of your own, come on over! Just be sure to wear long sleeves, and plan to use some bug spray while you are out picking.  I’ll have plenty of cold Whittenburg in our cooler if you would like to test out this pairing with your bounty!
