Baked Halibut with Spinach and Leeks

Posted on March 2, 2017 by Renee

Suggested Wine Pairing: Notre Vue 2014 White Blend (Chardonnay/Viognier) Zesty citrus and apple-like notes of the wine pair seductively with the delicate flavors of the halibut while the acidity plays perfectly with the richness of the sauce refreshing the palate.

Fettucine with Bacon, Peas and Parmesan

Posted on by Renee

Suggested Wine Pairing: Notre Vue 2014 Rhone Blend (Syrah) Spicy black pepper notes and flavors reminiscent of wild dark berries in the Rhone Blend work beautifully to highlight the smoky meatiness of the bacon with the fruity character of the wine supporting the Parmesan cheese.

Suggested Wine Pairing: Notre Vue 2014 Bordeaux Blend (Cabernet/Malbec) A sure bet with grilled meats is a strong, balanced Bordeaux-styled wine.
