Bonterra.com offers picnic recipes, wine pairings, movie guides & more for a summer to savor
HOPLAND, Calif., June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ready to take it outside? Bonterra, America's pioneer in organically farmed wines, offers wine pairings, recipes and eco-friendly solutions for outdoor dining all season long.
"At Bonterra, we enjoy outdoor meals all summer long," explains Lia Huber, Bonterra's Chef and Organic Life Aficionada. "I love the way both the flavors of summer and the feel of summer pair so well with our wines…and there's no better place to savor it all than a shady spot beside the organic vineyards at our McNab Ranch."
It's easy to create your own "moveable feast" for outdoor pairing and sharing: just pack up these delicious dishes and head to your backyard, the beach, lakeside or your favorite park.
Packable Picnic Recipes: Pan Bagnat Sandwiches and Giardinera
Wine Pairing: Bonterra Sauvignon Blanc provides a bright burst of grapefruit and melon that carries the acidity in each dish to its delicious conclusion.
Portable Potluck Recipes: Corn and Farro Salad with Chipotle-Lime Vinaigrette
Wine Pairing: Bonterra Viognier comes alive with creamy peach notes that highlight the zesty splash of lime in the dressing.
Backyard Barbecue Recipes: Saucy Summer Pinto Beans and Grilled Beef Ribs with Spicy-Sweet Zinfandel Glaze
Wine Pairings: Bonterra Merlot's deep black cherry flavors and soft tannins round out the smoky spice in the Pinto Beans, and Bonterra Zinfandel offers polished tannins to bridge the berry flavors that also shine in the rib glaze.
And what about picnic pests? "At Bonterra, we don't mind a few ants at our picnics! They're part of our ecosystem," says Lia. But to keep the biters at bay, she calls in the "Swat" Team: a fun, effective collection of natural solutions. "We use natural pest control in the vineyard, so why not everywhere?" Lia explains. "Our Eco-Swat Team offers household options like vinegar, herbs, essential oils and coffee grounds to keep uninvited guests away from the party."
