Wine Pairings for Baba Ganoush


as recommended by Karen Bonarrigo

• Roasting eggplant results in caramelization of the vegetables that bring out sweet, baking spice flavors
• Eggplant is great for soaking up other flavors in the dish, whether those flavors are citrus juice, balsamic vinegar, tomatoes, baked cheeses, creating versatile wine paring dishes
• Wines with acidity and slight structure are a nice balance with eggplant because the texture of squash tends to soften as it is cooked
Baba Ganoush is a mix of roasted flavors livened up with lemon juice, fresh garlic, and herbs. It is a chilled, rustic vegetarian option perfect for summer get-togethers because of its simplicity to make in variable quantities and wide range of delicious flavors.

Pair with any of the following:

Messina Hof Pinot Grigio
(crisp and citrusy dry white wine)

Messina Hof Sophia Marie Rose
(dry rose with red fruit notes)

Messina Hof Sangiovese
(rustic, medium bodied dry red wine)

Messina Hof Primitivo
(elegant dry red wine)
