Prosciutto & Melon
Paired with Sunstone 2021 Grenache Rosé
The sweetness of the melon complements the acidity of the rosé, creating a delectable balance of flavors. Adding a salty element like prosciutto, brings out the wine’s fruity notes and enhances the overall taste. A drizzle of balsamic vinegar adds depth and complexity to the dish, and helps to cut through the richness of the prosciutto. Together, the combination of rosé, melon, prosciutto and balsamic vinegar creates a delightful and refreshing taste experience.
Cheesy Mushroom Risotto

A cheesy mushroom risotto is a comforting and rich dish that pairs perfectly with our GSM wine blend. Rapsodie, which is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre, is known for its bold and robust flavors. The creamy texture and strong cheese flavors of the risotto complement the full-bodied and spicy notes of the wine blend, creating a harmonious balance of taste. The acidity in the wine helps to cut through the richness of the risotto, making each bite more enjoyable. Rapsodie is a great match for a cheesy risotto and can make a comforting meal even more special.
Braised Short Ribs

Our flagship wine is the perfect pairing for a hearty dish of braised short ribs. The full-bodied and complex flavors of the Bordeaux blend complement the rich and savory taste of the short ribs, with its tannins helping to cut through the meat’s fat and making each bite more enjoyable. The wine’s high acidity also enhances the flavors of the braising liquids, and its fruitiness, especially the dark fruit notes, brings out the natural sweetness of the meat. This pairing is a classic combination that creates a harmonious balance of taste and is a perfect match for a special occasion meal.
Pork Tenderloin with Spicy Soy Glaze
Paired with 2020 Cabernet Franc Reserve- Rated 91 Points!
Our Cabernet Franc Reserve is known for its bright red fruit flavors and its high acidity, which makes it an excellent pairing for a pork tenderloin with a spicy soy glaze. The wine’s acidity helps to cut through the rich, fatty pork, while its flavors complement the savory and spicy notes of the soy glaze. The wine’s tannins also help to soften the heat from the spice, making the dish more enjoyable. The fruitiness of the Cabernet Franc also enhances the natural sweetness of the pork, creating a perfect balance of flavors.
