A zoodle? What is a zoodle? A zoodle is simply a noodle made from zucchini, and it is a fantastic substitute for real noodles. It tastes great and it’s perfect for adding more vegetables to your diet. Enjoy this dish with a glass or two of 2016 Carr Sauvignon Blanc to get your daily serving of fruit – that counts, right?
Out here on the west coast, we’ve got daylight savings giving us extra sunlight, paired with some amazing warm weather. This is the perfect time of year to dust off the grill and start spending more time outdoors. Try grilling up some salmon and topping it with zingy nectarine salsa, while enjoying a glass of 2015 Carr Pinot Noir from the Yard Vineyard.
Although our Paella and Pinot event has come and gone, we still haven’t had enough! Chef Scott Wallace created three incredible paella recipes for the event to pair with our pre-release 2015 Pinot Noirs, so we’ve followed in his footsteps to give your an at-home recipe to pair with our 2014 Carr Pinot Noir from the Yard Vineyard. This is a vegetarian recipe, but you can add apple chicken sausages or shrimp for some extra flavor.
Even though Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and predicted 6 more weeks of winter, we are getting ready for the warmer weather that is right around the corner. Backyard cookouts and dining outdoors calls for new and exciting recipes, like lentil tacos, which pair famously with the 2015 Pinot Noir from the Yard Vineyard. The wine tastes like fresh raspberry with hints of light strawberry and candied cherries, finishing with full dark plum and subtle tannins. The full flavors of the lentils, paired with the bright fruit flavors of the pico create a great sidekick for this wine.
