The Best Laurita Wine To Pair With Your Pumpkin Dishes!
In honor of fall and the ubiquitous offering of all things pumpkin, we at Laurita Winery wanted to tell you about a really tasty pairing. We already told you how to make your own pumpkin-flavored wine. But since making wine isn’t exactly for the faint of heart or something that most people can do on whim, we figured it would be best to give you three of Laurita’s best wines that go with pumpkin dishes.
Pumpkin can be added to sweet and savory dishes, from hearty meats, pastas and lighter cheeses. This means it can be paired with a whole host of wines. How the pumpkin is used and how it relates to other items in the dish will determine what wine will bring out its own flavors.
A most excellent and delicious fall classic, pumpkin risotto will have your palate doing somersaults. This rich dish requires a high acidity wine to clean and freshen the mouth between bites, which means a sparkling wine might be a good choice because they are typically high in acid already. But we think our crisp and welcoming Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 would make an excellent pairing for this quintessentially fall dish.

So sit back, breathe in the crispy and smokey fall air, and enjoy an excellent meal with an excellent wine.
