Spring Wine and Food Pairings
While the weather may not yet be as warm as we wish, welcome in the change of seasons by refreshing your wine glass with a lighter varietal.
Enjoy these four Sutter Home wines, and try some fresh food pairings inspired by spring flavors.
Perfect for the first blush of spring (and really, all year long), Sutter Home White Zinfandel also makes a great mate for grilled seafood. So at the first opportunity to fire up the grill this season, enjoy a glass of White Zinfandel alongside cilantro-lime shrimp kebobs or salmon topped with a mango-chipotle salsa.
Crisp and fresh, every sip of Sutter Home Chardonnay is ideal for springtime as is the crunch and snap of a salad. Start with quinoa and mix in sliced pears, baby spinach, and chickpeas, or keep it simple by tossing those chickpeas with tomatoes and a handful of torn basil. A light and refreshing shrimp pasta with tomatoes, lemon, and spinach also offers a wonderful complement to our Chardonnay.
The fresh floral aromas and sweet flavors of Sutter Home Pinot Grigio will remind you to seek out the offerings at your local farmer’s market, now returning after winter. A spring pizza with egg, prosciutto, asparagus, and cheese would make for a lovely brunch. Or serve an easy spring dinner of fish tacos dressed with shredded lettuce, diced avocado, chopped cilantro, and lime juice.
Shake off any lingering winter doldrums with Sutter Home Pink Moscato. The wine’s caramel aromas and passion fruit and melon finish make fast friends with the kickier side of springtime. Enjoy chipotle chicken tostadas or spicy Asian lettuce wraps and see how quickly both disappear!
