Enjoying a good wine is a pleasure. Any excuse is good to uncork a bottle and pour yourself a glass to savor the moment. On a terrace with a good aperitif, in the afternoon chatting with friends or as an accompaniment to a good evening with a special person.
But if we are talking about a lunch or dinner where you want to find the perfect match between wine and food, it is essential to take into account some aspects. The choice of wine and its compatibility with the dishes is key to appreciate all its nuances. We propose a three-course menu with wines that fit like a glove to enhance the dining experience.
For the pairing of the first course, we suggest our Finca Montepedroso, which will allow you to know the essence and authenticity of Rueda. This winery is exclusively dedicated to the production of Verdejo white wines, so its fusion with fresh seafood and white fish is perfect. Also, with “arroz caldero” and “arroz a banda”, or with pasta au gratin and white meats.
We suggest a lobster salad, in our opinion the best starter with the proposal for the second course, a tasty grilled fish.
Different ways to cook this crustacean which combines perfectly with Finca Montepedroso, prawns or avocado, you decide.
This time, we present Finca Valpiedra Blanco Reserva, the only white wine from Finca Valpiedra and a peculiarity in our vineyard. Its medium intensity, its mineral and fruity notes pair perfectly with poultry and small game dishes. Another excellent option is grilled fish such as sea bass, sea bream or turbot and paella rice dishes. Freshness is the predominant note, with great balance between alcohol, showing a very long aftertaste and a pleasant finish.
For this Finca Valpiedra, our proposal is a grilled turbot, which is one of the fish with more personality of our coasts, the freshness of the wine will give the perfect counterpoint and the sensations on palate will be lighter.
As a culmination of our menu, we have the ideal wine to match with the dessert: Finca Antigua Muscatel Naturalmente Dulce. With reminiscences of stone fruits, such as peach and apricot; of white flowers such as jasmine; as well as spices including anise, fennel and nutmeg. Its silky entry in the mouth, with the sweet wine body development, makes it ideal for pairing with desserts and fruits of all kinds. In addition, our Muscatel can even be a dessert in itself.
This wine has personality and goes well with sweet and savory desserts. We suggest delicious cheese skewers with quince jelly, accompanied by dried fruits and nuts.
This type of proposal is guaranteed to be a success. The combination of our wines with these dishes makes the perfect marriage. Now, you have no excuse for not preparing a meal with the perfect pairing for your guests.
