Grilled Clams & Scallions Over Pan con Tomate
Start with our Grilled Clams & Scallions Over Pan con Tomate paired with Lafage Miraflors Rosé. This wine offers lots of bright red-fruit notes that match nicely with the tomato, plus its minerality makes it a great complement to the shellfish. It’s also light bodied, which makes it a great way to start a meal.
Spanish Tortilla with Serrano Ham & Greens in Citrus Vinaigrette
Alfresco dining calls for refreshing, easy-going wines that are delicious but don’t demand too much attention. Radio Boka Rosé from the Castilla region in Spain is just that. Lots of big, juicy strawberry flavour, along with bright acidity and a touch of dried herbs, make this rosé a lovely pairing for a tortilla. It’s made from the Monastrell grape and doesn’t dominate or overwhelm the delicate nature of the egg in this dish.
Sheep’s Milk Cheese Plate
Campo Viejo Rosé is made from the Tempranillo grape, which comes from the famous Spanish region of Rioja. This wine has a bit more body than lighter rosés, making it well-suited to a cheese plate. You’ll find loads of red- and black-fruit flavours, such as strawberry and blackberry. These work wonderfully with cheese — and the wine’s acidity does a great job of refreshing the palate.
Strawberry Granita and Lemon Pignoli Cookies
Off-dry Fresh Sparkling Rosé from Niagara is a terrific way to finish your meal. The Gamay in the blend offers bright, fruity notes of strawberry and cherry, while Riesling brings a refreshing citrus note. The wine is sweetish yet balanced and is wonderful alongside this light dessert. For fun, pour a splash over your granita.
