Rosé Pairings

Dry rosé wines, both locally and internationally, just get better and better. Here are links to my ten most recent pairings in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat.

As I say in my posting of links to a couple of dozen Sauvignon Blanc pairings, any pairing of food and drink is a snapshot in time, influenced not only by the natural compatibility of the drink but also by the entire environment, including how you feel and who your companions are. And as always, use these links and descriptions for inspiration; you do not need to search out the specific wine, which may no longer be available anyway. (The links will take you to the full articles, where you’ll find descriptions of the wine, the range of foods that it flatters, and a recipe.)
