There’s nothing like a long weekend to have fun experimenting with Wine & Food. George Bernard Shaw says “There’s no sincerer love than the love of food” and Robert Louis Stevenson says ‘Wine is Bottled Poetry”, then it’s no wonder we love to combine the two.
On the menu this weekend is an Apple Cranberry Stuffed Pork Tenderloin that I am making for my family.
With bread, apples cut up, fresh cranberries, toasted walnuts, savoury, chopped onion and salt and pepper, I will serve a couple of different wines. For the red wine drinker I am going to serve my favorite Merlo, The Velvet Devil from California. I love this smokey Merlot with pork and the silky soft finish just makes it one of my favorites. For the white wine drinkers a Bella Sera Piniot Grigio, a wonderful crisp light Pinot Grigio. And for those who like their white wine a little sweeter, a Riesling. I can drink small amounts of Riesling, but not much, because I find it too sweet for my taste. But for the Riesling selection I will go to Germany with this Guntrum Riesling.
What are you serving this weekend.? And which wines have you chosen? I would love to hear from you.
And I would like to take a moment to say a big Thank You to the men and women who have served this country, both past and present, to allow us the freedom to enjoy a long weekend. The celebration of wine and food with family is not lost on us. I know there are many families who have sacrificed loved ones so that the rest of us may enjoy it.
