You’re in one of Paul Martin’s restaurants, looking over the menu and just don’t know what to order, but you do know you would like a glass of wine…what to do?
Here are a couple of wine and food pairings that just might interest you.
For a starter (or even a light lunch), try the Oysters, fresh with mignonette (a traditional sauce made with coarsely ground white or black peppercorns, red wine vinegar and shallots) and cocktail sauce. Pair them with Schramsberg Rose Sparkling Wine. This wine really brings out the minerality of the oysters and highlights the natural freshness of the sea, while showing off the subtle fruit flavors of the wine.
For dinner our Chimichurri Chicken may tickle you taste buds! Have a glass (or share a bottle) of Meyer Family Syrah. Chimichurri is the great green sauce of Argentina, bringing together plenty of cilantro and other green herbs, citrus, garlic, and a touch of cracked red pepper and it needs the power of this beautiful Syrah made by the family that made Silver Oak famous.
Those are just two menu and wine pairings for you to contemplate. There are many, many more…and we will be blogging about them!
