Recently on our expedition to Costco we met a wine maker and bought a couple of bottles of the wine he and his wife were showing . What a delightful surprise! For under $9.00 dollars this wine was a perfect match for the Scampi dinner we had planned. Sea food lovers that we are… scampi is a delicious and simple meal to prepare. When a really good and fruity Sauvignon Blanc (California of course) is paired … it’s a WOW!
Some nice wild rice/ mix Rice~a~Roni makes the “side” easy… some steamed asparagus and the meal is complete! It’s a whole new take for “movie night”. It makes Netflix – special… the dinner romantic… and well combine it with the wine and even folks in the sunset years of their life… come ALIVE!
The wine – Honkers Blanc from Napa Valley is truly worth every dollar, retailing around $13.95. But, a steal when purchased at Costco for under $9.00. I’m looking forward to our upcoming winery and barrel tasting visit to share stories with the vintners.
