March 2018 Pairing
2016 Blossom and Vine Pinot Grigio
Wine Down Box - Buellton, CA
Sage & Herb Cheese
Plymouth Artisan Cheese - Plymouth, VT
Alle-Pia Fine Cured Meats - Atascadero, CA
With its invigorating aromas of citrus blossom and white peach, our 2016 Blossom and Vine Pinot Grigio evokes a heady sense of fresh blooms bursting open after a long winter. The flavors of this aromatic white range from refreshing lime zest to sweet casaba melon—with a hint of velvety crème fraîche in the finish.
We’ve complemented this with a Sage & Herb cheese from Plymouth Artisan Cheese. The aromatic sage, thyme, rosemary, lavendar and oregano build upon the beautiful citrus notes of the wine, without overpowering any other components.
Salami Cacciatore, which translates into “Hunter’s Salami”, is a mild and well-balanced salami that has a lighter taste than most other varieties. It is flavored with Chianti wine from Italy and fragrant juniper berries, which further accentuate the wine’s refreshing fruit notes.
*Each pairing includes a delicious bag of artisan Nita Crisp wheat bread crackers.
