Discover what the world’s best sommeliers already know - rosé is always in play, even when the temperature starts to fall! Sweater weather is here, and along with it comes your chance to enjoy food-friendly rosé wine with all your favorite autumn dishes! Rosé serves as a great counterpoint to earthy seasonal ingredients like mushrooms, root vegetables, or Brussels sprouts, and it can compliment the pure natural sweetness of baked apple or roasted squash. Rosé works beautifully with salty ham dishes, and it is magical as the ‘cranberry sauce’ that refreshes your palate during that heavy and savory traditional Thanksgiving meal. There’s never been a better time, or season, to discover the world’s most versatile wine style – Fall for Rosé!
Broadbent Vinho Verde Rosé with Seafood & Chorizo Paella
This classic dry Vinho Verde Rosé is delicious on its own as an aperitif, but it really shines when paired with savory Iberian dishes like Seafood & Chorizo Paella. The wine’s low alcohol level helps to tame the spice of the paella, while its refreshing acidity cuts through the fat of the chorizo. The exuberantly fruity flavors of fresh strawberry, grapefruit, and orange zest, are an excellent counterpoint to the range of savory flavors in the paella, and the wine’s light spritz helps to cleanse the palate.
