Wine and food pairings…
-Domaine des Cadastres, Picpoul de Pinet
From the coastal region in Languedoc comes this refreshing wine with slight effervescence which is unique. The effervescence creates a much brighter fruitier crisp summer wine.

-Vinos Marinos, El Neptuno Albarino
Hailing from the coast of Galicia in northwest Spain comes their answer to Sauvignon Blanc. Less grapefruit and citrus and more floral notes.
— Paired with a Marinated Feta and Cucumber Skewer.
-Moratis, Meltemi Red Blend
A nice light unoaked red blend from the island of Paros in Greece. Estate bottled and grown.
— Paired with a Grilled Shrimp in Garlic Herb Sauce
-Castell de Santueri, Mallorcan Red Blend
Hailing from the Spanish island of Mallorca comes a bigger paled red made with indigenous grapes (Callet, Montenegro and Cabernet)
— Paired with a Savory Shortbread featuring pepper, rosemary, and parmesan cheese.
