Médoc – Pair with Prosciutto

Gravel-rich soil lends itself to beautiful, tannic red wines. Pick up some thinly sliced prosciutto from your local butcher for a cravable salty bite!

Bordeaux Rosé – Pair with Roasted Tomatoes

Fruity and fresh, a glass of Bordeaux Rosé is always a showstopper. Keep with the color scheme by serving easy-to-roast cherry tomatoes atop any toast! The natural sweetness of the tomatoes is a natural fit for these wines.

Côtes de Blaye – Pair with Cucumber

Crunchy, cooling cucumber keeps things bright when pouring a dry white Côtes de Blaye. Perfect for days spent drinking wine outside!

Graves – Pair with Asparagus

If you’re pouring a red or white selection from Graves, grab some fresh asparagus! The floral undertones and rich clay soil lend perfectly to the earthy notes of this farmers market favorite.

White Bordeaux – Pair with Avocado

Most of the White Bordeaux bottles you’ll encounter feature bright, fruity, playful wine! Turn to the trusty avocado to bring a little creaminess to your smörgåsbord.

Bordeaux Supérieur – Pair with Capers

These younger, fruit-forward, and silky wines get a lively boost when served alongside capers! Pucker up to these briney berries and you’ve got a pairing to swear by!

Crémant de Bordeaux – Pair with Fromages de Chèvre
