Here are links to recipes and perfect wines to pair with your favorite foods of the moment, from St. Kathryn Cellars, Meadery of the Rockies and Talon Winery!

Wine Folly says, “aromatic white wines are wonderful when matched with aromatic Southeast Asian and Indian cuisine” in the article "What are Aromatic White Wines?" St. Kathryn Cellars Apple Blossom, Peach or Lavender Wines would complement Sera Ramen's shrimp tempura, pictured above.
What wine would you pour when serving Avocado Toast? Pair with St. Kathryn Cellars Golden Pear, of course! It’s a match made in heaven! Wine Magazine recommends a bold white wine with avocado.

What wine gets comfortable with grits and greens? Pairing wine with comfort food is easy as pie.
