June Club Wine Release Recipes

 

June Club Wine Release Recipes

 

The Sunset Red is the perfect table wine. It is also a good by the fire, cozied up with a blanket, kind of wine. It’s light in body, filled with dark fruit flavors, and a delicate tannic structure. I wanted to pair this wine with something light and fun and save the steak for the 2012 Mosaic I’ve been holding onto. The winemaker’s suggested pairing was barbeque chicken. I went with her suggestion, but of course I put my own little twist to it and made barbeque chicken nachos! I used chicken thighs and grilled them low and slow. I personally like to use the grill because of the smokiness and that little hint of char; but you can also cook the chicken in the oven or if you’re lucky to find a rotisserie chicken, that will work too! After the chicken was grilled, I shredded the meat with a fork and tossed it with a tangy, yet sweet barbeque sauce and set aside. I lined a baking sheet with parchment paper, spread out the tortilla chips then started layering… Shredded cheese, jalapenos, red onions, tomatoes, corn, BBQ chicken, then baked until cheese was melted.  Once everything came together in the oven, I made some restaurant style queso to drizzle over top (because you can never have enough cheese). I topped everything off with a dollop of sour cream, cilantro, and some homemade salsa. I like my light bodied reds slightly chilled, so after I got my wine to the right temperature, I poured myself a glass and piled a plate full of nachos and devoured. Grab plenty of napkins, you’re going to need them. 

 

 .

Barbeque Chicken Nachos

1 lb chicken thighs (or rotisserie chicken)
2 tbsp BBQ sauce of your choice
1 bag of tortilla chips
1 ½ cups shredded cheese
1 ear of corn – or small can
1 tomato (diced)
1 jalapeno (diced)
½ red onion (chopped)
Cilantro
Sour cream
Salsa

 

Queso

½ lb white American cheese
¼ cup milk (add more to thin out)
1 tbsp butter
1 (4oz) can green chilies
¼ tsp cumin
¼ tsp chili powder
1 clove garlic (minced)
½ yellow onion
1 jalapeno or serrano pepper 

 

 
Cook chicken to your desire. Place chicken in a large bowl, use a fork to shred.  Add your favorite barbeque sauce, toss and set aside. On a large baking sheet, line with parchment paper, spread out tortilla chips. Add shredded cheese, red onions, tomatoes, jalapenos, corn, bake at 400 until cheese has melted (about 5-10 mins). Drizzle queso over nachos, add toppings of your choice (salsa, sour cream, cilantro, limes, etc)
 
In a small sauce pan on medium high , add cheese, milk, butter, and green chilies. In a small sauté pan, cook onions, peppers, and garlic (about 2-3 mins until fragrant). Add onions and pepper mix to the sauce pan. Stir until melted and combine. – serve immediately 

 


 
The 2019 Shenandoah Springs Rose is bursting with flavors of fresh strawberry and summer watermelon. 2019 was a great year for red grapes, specifically our Cabernet Franc and Merlot, which is what went into this vintage. I wanted to highlight the juicy fruit flavors that are oh-so present in this rose. There is a slight acidity to the wine that I had to play with, so for this pairing I chose a light salad. One of the salads we offer for Divine Wine group tours is the spinach and berry salad, which is the first thing that popped in my head when I tried this rose. I start with fresh spinach and mixed green, then add sliced strawberries, blueberries, red onions, candied walnuts and pecans, and gorgonzola. For the dressing, I have two options, balsamic vinaigrette or creamy poppy seed, there’s no wrong choice for this light and flavorful salad!
