Adrice Autumn Release 2023

Autumn Release 2023

Food pairings, wine pairings, moment pairings, pairings. Autumn (or fall like is said in the US) it’s a time that we associate with cold, rain, snow & family or at least get togethers with mates and the sort. This time around, my beloved friends Pam (the winemaker) & Julie (the admin boss) decided to release 4 beautiful wines just on time for the last release of the year. As always, it is a pleasure to play, study & drink Adrice wines. And this time I came up with great pairing ideas for the new babies. I hope you all enjoy my food pairings and Pam’s creations, they never ever disappoint….they always make you fall in love with Adrice.

Salut & Buon Apettito!

Adrice Wines Summer Release 2023

For this summer release, Winemaker Pam Adkins does it again with her craft, her knowledge and ability to transform a little grape into this amazing wines we’re releasing. Varietals, blends and the always divine Vaqueras (Cowgirls) a beautiful dessert wine aged in rye whiskey barrels (American oak), pretty rare in the Washington wine market and one of my favorites from Adrice’s multiple price awarded line up! And for me, the Chef, a complete privilege to play with those awesome flavours and textures coming out of the bottle to imagine and create the perfect food pairing for each of the wines. Was a pleasure creating this pairings once again and will always be!

Enjoy! Cheers!
