Enjoy these elegant wines side by side with family and friends this holiday season and compare the flavor nuances of Alder Springs and Estate terroir. It's a fun way to taste our popular Viognier and Grenache varietals.
As an appetizer, pair these wines with Feta, goat cheese, cheddar, Chaumes, Double Glouchester (similar to mild cheddar), Gouda, Smoked Gouda, Manchego, Monterey Jack, Triple Creme, Brie, and Camembert.
Veggies are also great to pair white Rhône wines – especially with cheese or a bit of dairy at play. Creamed spinach, asparagus in a mild cheese sauce, broccoli and cheddar soup, and savory buttered vegetable will always work.
For the main course and because Rhône wines pair with anything incorporating apples, pears, lemon, or tangerines, peach, and mangos. Dishes with spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, clove, nutmeg, and vanilla also pair well with these wines. Smoked flavors and wood-fired grill pork, chicken, or fish are beautiful for Rhône white wines.
For dessert, Viognier is a perfect match with fruity tarts, peach, pear, and apple pies!
