Food And Wine: A Marriage Worth Celebrating!!
Easter is coming up this weekend and if you’re headed to our Easter Brunch at Laurita, you’re in for a treat! Our general philosophy is that every situation is just better with wine…and Easter is no exception! We have a huge variety of delicious food for you to eat this Sunday but we know the wine will also be flowing! To improve your experience, we put together a quick list of Laurita Wines that will go very well with some of our brunch offerings! We suggest your print it out and take it with you 😉
1.) Honey Glazed Salmon For this sweet and savory seafood dish, we suggest pouring a glass of our Barcelona White. This Albarino style wine easily compliments most food choices, especially seafood. Fresh aromas of peach, apricot, citrus and jasmine provide for a semidry, lively fruit and mineral finish! It’s very refreshing and rather delightful, if you ask us.
2.) Tavola Italia Our Tavola Italia is an elegant antipasto table of meats, cheese, marinated salads, infused olive oil, and assorted artisan rolls. When you hit this station at our brunch, we suggest a glass of our silky Merlot. Dark and earthy with minerals, this wine will stand up to the strength of the flavors you’ll find at the Tavola Italia. You’ll instantly detect currants, vanilla and black cherries. Yum!
3.) Carving Station While you’ll find Roasted Beef Tenderloin and Molasses Glazed Ham, we chose to focus on our wonderful Pork Tenderloin. When you indulge, we suggest you have a glass of our Chardonnay Reserve handy. It’s a full-bodied wine with flavors of citrus fruit, figs and a slight hint of wood. The balance on the palate is wonderful. Pair it with some Pork Tenderloin and you’re on your way to bliss.
4.) Display Table Our Display Table comes with a variety of different offerings, but our Fresh Mozzarella with Sliced Tomatoes is especially tasty. Snag a glass of our Cabernet Sauvignon and you’ll be good to go! It has a gorgeous color that completely entrances. The flavors are complex and layered. It has an angular, elegant structure making it very smooth. The acidity of the tomatoes companied with the milkiness of the mozzarella marries wonderfully with our earthy Cabernet. Try and you’ll know what we’re talking about 🙂
5.) Reader’s Choice! While there are tons of other wine and food pairings we could touch upon, we would LOVE to know which combination you’re going to try this weekend! Which is your favorite? Is it unusual? We want to know your secrets! As long as there’s wine, all is right with the world.
If you can’t make it to our Easter Brunch, we suggest grabbing a few bottles of Laurita Wine and trying some pairings at home! Practice makes perfect 🙂
