as recommended by Karen Bonarrigo & Merrill Bonarrigo

  • Raw green beans can be a crisp raw vegetable snack or ingredient in any salad.
  • Adding creamy cheeses or Asian herbs and spices create versatile wine pairing side dishes with dry or sweet reds, rose’s, and fruity whites
  • The Cool Asian Green Bean salad pairs well with white wines that have good acidity like Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Serenity or Gewurztraminer.
  • In the recipe Messina Hof Solera Sherry is an ingredient. Pairing the same wine with this dish creates a natural flavor affinity. This wine is sweet so you can adjust the Vinaigrette by reducing the honey or increasing the ginger to create more balance.
  • Making dishes that include creamy cheeses pair well with red wines like Sangiovese.
