Summer Re:Mix: Baked Fish with Tomatoes [RECIPE]

FILED UNDER: Food and Wine Recipes, White Wine

This fresh recipe from Bordeaux Wine School reminds us of our recent trip to Bordeaux – sailing the Bassin d’Arcachon, enjoying the warm sun with seafood, white Bordeaux, and the friends we made. Our suggestion: find a patio, backyard, rooftop, deck, and enjoy during sunset. And don’t forget the white wine!
