Red Selections

1. Tempranillo – A Spanish classic boasting deep ruby hues, lush dark fruit flavors, and velvety tannins; ideal for pairing with meats like lamb or beef short ribs.
2. Pinot Noir – With its seductive fruit-driven profile ranging from red cherries to dark berries, this delicate yet complex varietal pairs wonderfully with our roasted duck breast or mushroom risotto.
3. Cabernet Sauvignon – Offering rich blackcurrant and cassis notes along with hints of vanilla and oak, this full-bodied favorite is impeccable alongside our braised short rib or blackened tenderloin.

White Selections

1. Chardonnay – Ranging from bright citrus notes to sumptuous buttery flavors depending on aging techniques, this versatile white can be paired with anything from seafood dishes like pan-seared halibut to our decadent truffle mac ‘n cheese.
2. Sauvignon Blanc – Zesty grapefruit, tangy gooseberry, and fresh-mown grass characterize this crisp yet elegant varietal; suitable for sipping alongside our heirloom tomato salad or grilled artichoke appetizer.
3. Riesling – Aromatic and versatile with striking hints of peaches or apricots depending on sweetness levels; try it by marrying the flavors of ginger-glazed salmon or indulging in a delightful cheese board selection.
