Pairing Wine with Market Finds

Over the summer Farmer’s Markets and Flea Markets are a great way to find local made goodies to introduce to friends along side a good wine.

We recently discovered a new friend was in the business of making biscotti- many flavors, and interesting combination’s too! As well as some hot sauce, or where I come from in Texas, Chili Paste who’s flavors still ring out in my memory, and I want to spread on even just the simplest piece of cheese.

Being sent a few bottles of wine from a winery in California’s Lodi region, especially a Syrah, Partner’s In Wine felt it was time to take the treats to the table to get others opinion on some pairings.

Earthquake Syrah-

Invited to a gathering and fundraiser, her and I each took a bottle to compare side by side. Both were good meaty and jammy on the taste buds. Syrah is know to pair well with spicy, with its own spicy notes. The chocolate biscotti also was good match, but a surprise was the coffee toffee biscotti that held up to the match.

Syrah is a good bottle to introduce those white zinfandel to white chardonnay drinkers to some good red wine. Drank with good bites like the Saba’s Hot Sauce Spread, and Randi’s Gourmet Food Biscotti will help them quickly decide red is the road to follow. It worked for us!

Cheers!
