Wine Pairing for Wilted Spinach and Mushrooms with Bacon

WINE PAIRINGS FOR WILTED SPINACH AND MUSHROOMS WITH BACON

as recommended by Karen Bonarrigo

• Dark, leafy greens are a dinner-time sidedish favorite in the wintertime
• Spinach is a vitamin-packed veggie that can be served raw as a base for a multitude of salads and can also withstand being cooked down and “wilted” to bring out more weight
• Adding heavier earthy elements, such as mushrooms and bacon, create depth and richness
• Different seasonings and spices can also be flexed into the dish with different flavor directions. Add red pepper flakes or curry for an extra kick.
• The addition of mushrooms and bacon add the ability for this vegetable-based dish to wander into the world of red wines.
