“A meal without wine is like a day without sunshine.”

— Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, ‘The Physiology of Taste’

In Monterey County we grow an array of diverse varietals. Each comes with its own innate and distinct characteristics, which is then added upon when given unique personality by its winemaker. The options are vast, as are the opportunities to enhance these characteristics with the right fare. So when pairing food and wine seems discouraging, remember, a pairing suggestion reflects only one dimension in a world full of options. We invite you to share in our general pairing guidance and then allow your appetence to explore as you enjoy the delight Monterey wines can bring when pairing with your favorite foods.

Simple guidelines, experimentation encouraged.
