The holiday we can ALL celebrate has arrived, friends! IT’S NATIONAL WINE DAY! (proof that God loves us, amen!?) To celebrate, we are featuring two of our favorites with a few of their respective charcuterie board pairings and we think you will absolutely love them!
First on the docket is our Dellatorri Chianti. This beautiful Italian wine boasts bright, cherry aromas and soft vanilla and berry flavors and pairs OH SO PERFECTLY with all your pasta dreams! When being paired with charcuterie, we highly recommend featuring some tomatoes, mozzarella cheeses, parmesan cheeses, mushroom flavors, and, believe it or not, BBQ flavors! We promise your taste buds will thank us!
Next up is our Dellatorri Pinot Grigio. This lovely Italian gal shows off with her citrus, mineral, and flint aromas and abundant fruitiness. And in the hot summer heat that we’re in right now, we think it’s the perfect wine to chill next to your charcuterie board! Speaking of — if you’re doing a little charcuterie with this one, we highly suggest adding some veggie flavors — lettuce, green beans, radishes — and complimenting those with some fruity additions like apples and pears. And of course, don’t forget the cheese! Ricotta is the perfect pairing for this wine!
No matter how you choose to celebrate National Wine Day, we are simply saying this: JUST MAKE SURE TO CELEBRATE IT SOME HOW, SOME WAY! We think you earned it! 😉
As always, you can follow along on social media with us @corksandcheers for videos, pictures, pairing suggestions, and much more!
It’s Mother’s Day weekend, y’all, and I think we can all agree that we should be raising ALLLLL the glasses to ALLLL the moms, amen!? Moms are the literal G L U E that holds all of humanity together. This is a fact and not up for debate. There have never been and never will be a breed of human beings quite like the mamas. So today, we have a special lil drink to help you celebrate the special mom or moms in your life — and if you are a mom yourself, this one’s for you!
Here’s what you’ll need:
3 oz Martin’s Rake Sauvignon Blanc
1/2 oz Silver Tequila
1/2 oz Ruby Red or Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Fresh Lime Juice
3/4 oz Agave Nectar
Grapefruit slices to garnish
Salt or sugar
And Here’s how you make it:
In your shaker, combine your wine, liquor, fruit juices, and agave nectar. Then you know what to do — sh-sh-sh-shaaaake it, mama! Rim a glass with either sugar or salt, depending on your preference, and pour over ice! Voila — Mama’s Marg is ready for sipping!
And while you’re at it, may we suggest waiting on the special lady hand and foot for the rest of the day!? Unless of course you’re the special lady — then you demand the same kind of service! 😉
For real — to alllll the moms: biological moms, step-moms, foster moms, spiritual moms, or “second” moms… we appreciate you and we honor the never-ending, all consuming, unconditional love and service you thanklessly offer to the world. We know we speak for your people when we say: the world is better because you’re in it!
As always, you can find the video recipe and more details about this drink and plenty of others on our Instagram @corksandcheers!
Happy Mother’s Day!
