Local Chef Katharine Browning made these tasty potato bites for our Sparkling Holidays Party in December and everyone loved them! They are especially tasty when paired with our Sparkling Blanc de Blanc.
This soup is is like velvet on the palate. I like to add a drizzle of creme fraiche and a few bits of candied ginger as a garnish and accent. Serve with a glass of Amista Chardonnay as begin your meal with a stunning combination.
Chef John Franchetti created a soup variation of the classic Cassoulet for Amista to serve at Wine and Food Affair in 2010. We featured it with our estate grown Syrah - a classic pairing and a big hit!
Everyone loves pizza and sausage is always a favorite. Add a handful of rocket (arugula) when it comes our of the oven for a colorful one-dish meal. Then pour a glass of Amista Zinfandel and you're all set.
Amista loves our locals! Starting with a hidden gem located right in our town of Healdsburg - Guiso Latin Fusion. Carlos, the owner and chef paired his Lamb in Barbacoa with our Amista Syrah. It was a marriage!
This very tender bite sized beef rib in a rich and hearty French inspired beef and red wine sauce can be served alone or over sour cream mashed potatoes. We love this dish on a chilly winter evening with our estate grown Syrah.
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme combine for a layered herb sauce to showcase thick cut pork chops. The mix of herbs goes beautifully with the mix of varieties in Amista Tres - Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. The dish is equally good with a chilled bottle of our Sparkling Syrah!
For a more "big and savory" dish, serve this Tomato and Smoked Pork Ragu with nothing other than our Gene's Block Zinfandel. A great meal to share with friends, and a great wine to raise your glass to! Saludo!
