Unique Eats: Gastropubs Wine Pairings
Wine pairing suggestions from Carla Rzeszewski, Wine Director, The Breslin Bar and Dining Room
Pairing for lamb burger:
Grapes: Nerello Cappuccio/ Nerello Mascalese
Region: Mount Etna, Sicily
These indigenous Sicilian grapes are grown at high altitudes on the side of a still-active volcano, Mount Etna. Aromas of rich Port-like fruit and smoky, dark earth; on the palate, black fruit, smooth tannins, balanced acidity.
Pairing for charcuterie board:
Region: Niederoesterreich, Austria
Producer: Graf Hardegg
Bright Riesling fruit on the nose: fresh apricot, mineral, meyer lemon; on the palate, extremely crisp, dry citrus with awesome acidity.
