Wine and food pairings…
–Bodegas Farina, Dama de Toro Malvasia
Led by the Farina team in historic Toro (known for its deep big red wines), the women have taken the lead in developing a very delicate white from the Malvasia grape using 40-year-old vines.
— Paired with a Chèvre Devil, a sweet date stuffed with tangy goat cheese and topped with a candied pecan.
–Bosinakis, Anastasia Moschofilero
Catherine the winemaker is 2nd generation winemaker and first female in the family to make wine. She was a leader and one of the very first to make 100% Moschofilero, which typically had been a blending grape. She also involves the community to give input in the creative aspects of art and label design.
— Paired with Spanakopita, a traditional Greek pastry stuffed with feta, spinach and herbs.
-Pago Ayles, A de Ayles Red Blend
Led by the Ruela family’s oldest daughter since 1998, she was instrumental in ensuring they got classified as the first Vino de Pago in the Aragon region. They have also cobbled together land that had been in the family since the Middle Ages to create one of the largest historical farms in the world. Fruity oaked red blend.
— Paired with Grilled Lamb Skewers featuring tender pieces of marinated lamb, grilled to perfection, and served with a spicy chimichurri sauce.
-Bodega Castillo de Cuzcurrita, Senorio de Cuzcurrita Rioja
Located in Rioja Alta, Ana Martin bought a 14th century Clos styled castle and built one of the largest gravity fed wineries in Rioja. Within the castle walls she has created her own clone of Tempranillo which grows on 18 acres with an additional 60 acres outside the walls. A delicate rioja aged 18 months.
— Paired with Pork Meatballs in a Sun-dried Tomato Sauce.
