Gourmet Recipe Pairings
The bright acidity of ceviche pairs perfectly with our crisp summer 2015 Albariño Epona’s Goddess Reserve. Serve this beautifully simple ceviche with plantain chips to bring out the tropical banana notes in the wine for an added bonus.
The long zippy finish and playful nature of our 2015 Albariño Epona’s Goddess Reserve make it a natural flirt, happy to sidle up alongside a wide range of dishes. The juiciness of the wine lends itself to cooling down the spiciness of Thai and Indian fare. It’s lighter weight flavors complement shellfish and fish.. Its freshness accents fresh garden produce beautifully. Enjoy it with fresh sliced watermelon—our favorite!
