Great Local Restaurants Pairing with our Zinfandel

The Local Participation in Zinfandel Month

May, 2012

 

It always amazes me how much talent we have in the restaurants of El Dorado County. Not only do we have exceptional chefs, but the restaurants are interested in showcasing their skills with the wines of the region. So when we started our program of highlighting Zinfandel (arguably the wine of the Foothills), it didn’t surprise us that so many restaurants would want to participate. What did surprise us was the diversity of the pairings, from fish to pastas to heavy meat dishes.

 

With 19 restaurants signing on, it gives us a chance to experience a different culinary take on Zinfandel pairing nearly every day of the week. As a winery, this simply shows how truly diverse Zinfandel can be. Our Hillside Zinfandel, complex with a rustic edge, is the claret style of Zin. The Signature Zinfandel is all about the texture and richness of Zin.

 

We look forward to sampling all the pairings below while learning just a bit more about this great variety of Zinfandel!
