We’ve been celebrating Earth Month with some wonderful wines that are kind to the planet. Sustainability is a buzz word in the wine industry these days and for good reason. We all want to take care of the planet, and we want to be able to enjoy tasty wine!
We received a few samples from Scheid Family Wines recently, two of which we will tell you about today. The third? Well, it will be following shortly.
(Keep in mind, that while we received these wines as media samples, all opinions are our own)
What did we pair with these wines?
We paired these wines with some tasty bites as we celebrated vaccinations with a couple of friends. The ability to gather with a couple of people dear to us, all of us completely vaccinated and complete with our post-vaccination waiting period made for a joyful evening.
Our menu was small bites and my guests, being very dear friends were put to work helping to assemble the spread, which included:
Pears with goat cheese and arugula wrapped in prosciutto
Tiny latkes with crème fraiche and fresh green apple (recipe below)
Mini parmesan biscuits with balsamic and black pepper strawberries and honeyed ricotta with tarragon (recipe below)
And a cheese plate
The wines were cheerful and bright, perfect for the mood!
