5 Restaurant-Quality Foods You Can Get Delivered—and Their Perfect Wine Pairings
The beauty of white truffles is that they require almost no work. They’re not meant for cooking but rather to finish dishes with a fragrant punch of earthy, musky goodness. Simply shave them over your cacio e pepe, a white-sauce pizza, an omelet or buttery potatoes to take a dish from delicious to transcendent. The Urbani family has been in the truffle business since 1852, and from September to December is when this most exclusive of Italy’s coveted mushrooms—the white truffle—is at its peak.
Site Wines 2016 Bien Nacido Vineyard Syrah, Santa Maria Valley
“Classically, everyone reaches for Barolo with truffles because they grow together, so they go together. But Site Wines in California’s Santa Barbara County is doing some of the coolest red Rhône varieties you’ll see in the States right now. The wine has that kind of funky, earthy, mushroom and smoke component that good Syrah should, which goes well with truffles.”—Micah Clark, The Restaurant at Meadowood, Napa Valley

THE WINEMAKERS PODCAST SEASON 1 | EPISODE 3 Jeremy Weintraub
East Coast | A home grown New Yorker who donned his corporate tie for a cowboy hat in Paso.
Intellectual | Not many people after a successful stint in politics would go back to college at 30 to retrain in Chemistry. In order to further his appreciation of winemaking Jeremy then worked in vineyards all around the world from New Zealand to Italy.
Renaissance | From being in a band, fixing vintage motor bikes, working in political think tanks, cooking up a storm in the kitchen and being a multitasking Paso winemaker for Adelaida and Site – is there any more skills this guy needs to add to his bow?!
Find me on The Winemakers podcast on iTunes, etc.
