Food and Wine Pairing Guide: Sweet River White

Here’s the next installment in our wine and food pairing guides featuring the Sweet River White. This wine is quite sweet with about 9% residual sugars. It also has a nice light texture and the flavor reminds me of gala apples. The Sweet River White is a great choice for sipping on it’s own, pairing with fruity desserts, or with light cheeses.

If you’d like to make a fun cocktail, check out my recent recipe for a pineapple clementine spritzer or try making a White Wine Hurricane using the Sweet River White.  Our Sweet River White Cookies would pair perfectly with either of those fun drinks!

Wine and Food Pairing Guide: Dry Creek

Dry Creek Pairing Guide
This month’s wine & food pairing guide features our Dry Creek.  This white is a heavier-bodied wine than most of our whites, so I call it my “white wine for red drinkers”!  The heavier texture allows the Dry Creek to pair well with foods that you often think to pair with red wines.

We love the Dry Creek with smoked salmon, pork, or chicken cordon bleu.  But it will also compliment a pork or beef roast too.  Check out this pasta recipe that combines pasta, sausage, and a wine sauce using Dry Creek. Full-flavored cheeses are a match made in heaven with the Dry Creek.  Try a blue cheese, gruyere, or parmesan cheese along with a hearty cracker if you’d like to serve the Dry Creek with your appetizers.

As far as sweets go, the Dry Creek goes well with apples, pears, and most berries.  Caramel, milk chocolate and other rich desserts will probably be a bit too much for this wine however.

I hope this reference helped you pick out the perfect dishes to serve with our Dry Creek!

Wine and Food Pairing Guide: Whittenburg

Whittenburg Pairing Guide
Here’s the latest wine pairing guide for you featuring our Whittenburg wine. This smooth, semi-sweet white is one of our top-selling wines right now.  It’s a blend of several white grapes, but features the Vignoles grape primarily.

The wine’s light texture and 4% sugars, makes it a perfect compliment for picnics or spicy foods.  Of course, it also makes a nice pairing for lighter desserts too.  In fact, I used the Whittenburg to make a delicious pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving last year – we called it Whumpkin Pie.

Enjoy the guide and let us know if you have any requests for the next guide!
