~Wine Pairings~

Pottage ~ Swordfish

This Albarino blends citrus acidity with tropical fruits like pineapple, kiwi, and papaya. This makes it perfect as a compliment for the potage and a great accompaniment for the swordfish.

This is our selection for a single white wine.

Braised Short Ribs

This Rhone blend is a wonderful departure from the standard big Cabernet or red blend for this dish. There’re abundant tannins, great red and black fruit, and chocolate notes in this wine. There’s also good structure which will balance the richness of this dish.


We love how bright this wine starts and how wonderfully balanced it is after about 10 minutes in the glass. There’s a great balance of acidity, tannin, and soft, dark fruit. This wine isn’t over the top so it’ll pair perfectly with this dish and cut through some of the richness.

This is our choice for a single bottle of red wine.
