Provençal Pairings: Wine with Food

Regroup(er)ing

I know you. You spend significant time planning your menus and your wine pairings. Maybe not every day, but at least for special occasions. I certainly do, and this weekend was no exception.

Sometimes I plan the wine around the meal, sometimes the meal around the wine. This was a case of the latter.

The rosé — Commanderie de Peyrassol — is from Château Peyrassol, about 30 miles northwest of Saint Tropez. With its proximity to the Mediterranean (well, it’s not exactly ON the water), I planned to make fish for...

The Salt of the Sea

Today’s tasting may be the most unusual I have done. It is a wine that, if blindfolded when tasted, would not have said “rosé” to me, although it wouldn’t have said red or white, either.
