Pinot Noir and Salmon Pairing

This week we enjoyed dinner and wine with good friends, whom we do not have the opportunity to see as frequently as we would like due to family and work obligations. It’s amazing how the time can fly by when catching up on what’s been happening in each of our families.

We enjoyed a delicious salmon that had been marinated and served with quinoa. A salad with a raspberry homemade salad dressing was terrific. This meal was paired with a Pinot Noir from C. Donatiello Winery in Healdsburg, California. With a smooth mouth feel, the wine paired well with the marinated salmon.

C. Donatiello Winery, located in Sonoma Valley, produces Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines. If you have the opportunity to visit the winery during the growing season take time to wander through the spacious gardens in front of the winery. These gardens feature two smaller gardens with plants that feature aromas found in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

An article about C. Donatiello Winery is available on the Wine Trail Traveler website.

For dessert, we enjoyed ice cream with petite biscotti and a glass of dessert wine, Terry had made in 2009. The wine was made from a kit and was remarkably good with dessert.

What wine and food pairing have you enjoyed recently?

Cheers, Kathy
