It's been a hot summer, so we're keeping it light yet satisfying with this lamb dish that calls for white wine. That's why we've chosen Laura's favorite pick of the season, the Arrowflite Chardonnay. It has notes of zesty citrus and apple which is why it makes for the perfect complement to the citrus-fennel salad.



This chard is light and buttery and will add a refreshing touch of nuance to this dish., leaving your guests with no choice but to grab seconds.  ($14.99)

 

Dessert Course: Pear Pie with Red Wine and Rosemary

VDH LH Zinfandel


Sweet, smooth, and rich. That's how we like our dessert and our dessert wine. So naturally, we've paired this Pear Pie with the Van Der Hayden Late Harvest Zinfandel which delivers just that - decadent flavors of chocolate, plum, dark berry, with a lovely oak infused vanilla that perfectly complement the cinnamon and rosemary in the pie.
Bet you can't eat just one bite. ($25.00)
