Not sure about Chardonnay? You’ll think again with some of our best Chardonnay pairing
Summer calls for wine with refreshing acidity, full flavor, and effortless outdoor food-pairing ability. Chardonnay fits all of these without missing a beat and is one of our favorites for its versatility! Hailing from Sonoma County, the grapes in our 2019 Chardonnay make for a crisp and clean wine with just the right body to fit into all of your favorite alfresco dining experiences. Not sure where to begin pairing? Don’t overthink it! Read on below.
Keep pairing simple with Ferrari-Carano’s Wild Sea Scallops, Spring Pea Puree, and Crispy Shallot with Charred Onion Vinaigrette
On the West Coast, it’s no secret that we love our seafood, and that we do seafood well. At
Ferrari-Carano, we are especially adept at pairing wine with seafood. Whether you’re searching for a special date night meal at home on the patio or looking to serve a delicious dinner for friends in the backyard, the caramelization of the sea scallops in our Wild Sea Scallop recipe is an ideal complement to the creamy citrus notes of our Tré Terre Chardonnay. As part of our Vineyard Select collection, the Ferrari-Carano Tré Terre Chardonnay adds a bit more flair and flavor to your special occasion. With fragrant notes of apricot and cinnamon apples alongside flavors of juicy Meyer lemon, the Tré Terre Chardonnay is a wine not to be missed.
Wine pairing for your picnic
Summertime is picnic time with Ferrari-Carano. Unfold your favorite picnic blanket and unscrew a bottle of
Chardonnay (yes, our classic Chardonnay has a screw cap – perfect for outdoor picnics). Pack your favorite melon, slices of prosciutto, and a quick lobster salad for an elevated and fun al-fresco alternative dining experience with friends and family. The stelvin (screw cap) closure ensures that you can reseal any un-sipped wine at the end of your picnic with zero leaks, although we highly doubt there will be any left over. Heavier, creamy seafood dishes like lobster salad or shrimp risotto beckon for the medium-full body of our Chardonnay, and a zesty lemon finish rounds out your favorite summer meals with a delightful fruitforward fragrance. Seize the day, and get sipping on your favorite Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay!
Our favorite way to enjoy Ferrari-Carano wines is by sipping outside with loved ones, al-fresco style. Enjoy
our Chardonnay at the beach, on a picnic, or at a barbecue, but don’t forget to show us how you #TakeItOutside with Ferrari-Carano this summer!
