Food Pairing Notes
Very versatile with both people and food, pleasant before dinner, and delicious with light dishes such as melon, prosciutto, baked ham, chicken, trout, "Swiss" type cheeses and fresh fruit. Serve chilled.

This is a lovely wine. Great for many occasions and foods. But my favorite experience was the challenge of finding a pairing for candy corn for Halloween night. I drove to the winery (nice to have it local) and asked Megan for her suggestions. I had a bag of candy corn along and after trying several whites and reds, Megan suggested this Riesling. I agreed. She said the honey notes in the wine were picking up something in the candy corn. She wondered if the candy had honey in it. We checked the ingredients. It did contain honey! Great pairing advice. I bought a bottle and enjoyed the enhanced munching of candy corn while waiting for trick or treaters. And yes, this wine is excellent with other dishes as well.
