Invintions St Pattys DayWe are well aware that on this day, most people drink Guinness and maybe a pint of green beer; however, like any other holiday, wine is also a perfectly acceptable pairing option for traditional St. Patrick’s Day recipes!  So, here are our favorites:

Corned Beef & Cabbage – A St. Patrick’s Day tradition that is briny and salty. So, we suggest the following InVINtions’ wines to pair with this dish:

White Merlot
Bin 14 Riesling
Gamay Nouveau

Shepard’s Pie – You can make a quick and simple Shepherd’s Pie, and pair it with:

Merlot- Stag’s Leap District
Chardonnay

Wine Trivia About Amarone – Answer

Visit Us on the Web – Click Here

Yesterday, we asked: “What is the proper serving temperature for Amarone?  Why?:

The answer is: 64-68-degrees because the more body and structure a wine has, the higher the serving temperature should be so the full flavor profile can be showcased and enjoyed.
