Cheers to leaving April showers in the dust and embracing the beautiful month of May! One wine you’ll find on our picnic table this spring is the ‘Mortar and Pestle Cabernet Merlot’. This Aussie gem offers aromas of red cherry and blackcurrants and flavours of milk chocolate on the palate. Try it with a Caprese-stuffed veggie burger and kick the whole experience up a notch for a fantastic spring pairing. The classic red blend has rich, ripe red fruit flavours and pairs perfectly with richer, intensely flavoured dishes. The intensity of the pesto and fresh tomatoes stand up to the bold fruit flavours while the creamy mozzarella matches the long, smooth finish. Don’t just take our word for it, try this delicious pairing for yourself!

Delicious New World Wines can only be matched with delicious new recipes. This month we wanted to shine a light on a mouth-watering Malbec, paired with a cheesesteak slider. This Okanagan red with its fun and whimsical label is juicy, ripe, and smooth with flavours of dark cherry and red currant on the palate. Monster Vineyards Malbec is simply a behemoth of tantalizing flavours! Sip on this local delight while creating one of our favourite recipes to pair!

March is a bit of an odd month that brings out two types of people: those who want to hold onto those last few winter months and cozy up under a blanket, embracing those early dark evenings, and others who are ready for Spring and already wondering if a cardigan is enough of a jacket to wear outside. (If you live on Vancouver Island, the answer is most likely no!)

Whether you are the bundle-up-at-home type or eagerly waiting for those crisp sunny days, Everything Wine has suggestions for food and wine pairings for any March mood. Here is one of our top March recipes paired perfectly with an Old World European wine. Sit back and let us do the work while you Eat this! Drink that!
