Summertime Food for Chasselas
Summer is fast approaching and we could not be more excited for the seasonal fare. At Berthoud Winery, we plant much more than just grapes and always have something ripe in the garden. This year we are anxiously awaiting fresh tomatoes, figs, eggplant and know some folks who are dying for the Italian sweet peppers. As this haul is about to come in, we are thinking about what we can pair with our refreshing Chasselas Doré. Some of our favorite simple summer sides are Marinated Italian Sweet Peppers and BBQ'd prosciutto wrapped figs. The crisp minerality of our Chasselas Doré is a perfect pairing for the sweet and salty characterestics of the Italian sweet peppers and prosciutto wrapped figs. This meal is best enjoyed with a full table of friends and family outside on a warm evening.
