Happy Monday! We’ve been busy at the winery and haven’t been able to keep up with the blog as much, but here is a new entry that will make your mouth water.This week’s pairing is recommended by Rachel, one of our marketing interns here at Donkey & Goat. 

In light of the new season (Spring!), Rachel recommends a light favorite: Pasta Primavera paired with our 2010 Brosseau Vineyard Chardonnay, Chalone. Pasta Primavera literally translates to “Spring Pasta,” so this is definitely a popular dish for picnics and get-togethers. Our 2010 Brosseau Vineyard Chardonnay pairs nicely with this “Spring Pasta” because of it’s complimentary refreshing taste. Our chardonnay also goes well with a smoked salmon/penne pasta combo or pasta with lobster and mushrooms. To compliment any light dish this spring, give our Chardonnay a try!

Happy Monday to all! Hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend. This week we are starting another weekly blogpost, this new one called Personal Pairings which will be up every Monday. Each Monday one of our employees, friends, and wine connoisseurs will share their favorite dish/wine pairing.

Our first pairing is recommended by me (Krizia), one of the marketing interns at Donkey and Goat. One of my favorite pairings is an Italian American staple: Chicken Parmigiana paired with our 2009 Fenaughty Vineyard Syrah. While Pinot Noir or Merlot is usually paired with this dish, the fruity and berry-ness of our Syrah really brings out the robust tomato sauce and breaded chicken. It’s generally a great wine for Italian and Spanish dishes. Don’t believe me? Try this combination yourself and you’ll thank me.
