Wine Pairing: 2012 Hawley Winery Viognier

Brie Blossoms are an elegant and creative dish perfect for summertime entertaining. But what would a party be without a splendid glass of wine to pair with these tasty treats? Luckily, here in The Kitchen we can help! We are excited to introduce our most recent addition to the team, our Resident Sommelier, Regina Sanz. Regina comes to us with a wealth of knowledge in all things wine and spirits, and has given some great wine pairing recommendations below. To learn more about Regina and our new wine service packages, visit our Wine Services page.

Notes from The Sommelier:

Summertime is a great time to expand your wine horizons. Only drink Chardonnay? At your next gathering branch out and try a Viognier instead. Viognier is a delicious grape that creates a wonderfully aromatic wine, rich with white peach and apricot undertones. Some great examples are coming from Sonoma County, Ca. and are generally better priced than most fancy Chardonnays. My very favorite right now is the 2012 Hawley Winery Viognier. Pair this wine with Chef Kellans’s famous Brie Blossoms and be the hit of the party circuit. Cheers! Regina
