"Drinking good wine with good food in good company is one of life's most civilized pleasures."--Michael Broadbent

 Great Holiday Entertaining...

Party Wines & Foods:
Peanuts, walnuts, pecans, almonds and other nuts all have an oily, salty taste and need a

wine with an acidic backbone such as our Riesling or Blanc de Blancs to balance their taste.
Spicy Asian and Thai foods need some sweetness to temper their heat.  Winter Harvest Cabernet, Summer Sun, Sellar Secret and Vidal all complement these.

Snacks such as oysters, shrimp and salmon are too briny for red wines and make the wine taste metallic. Try our Vidal,  Blanc de Blanc, Proprietor's White or Summer Sun Cabernet and Sellar Secret.
