Last weekend I had the glorious opportunity to venture back up to Sonoma (my favorite thing to do always 🙌🏼🍷) and wine taste at Arrowood Winery! A rad group of bloggers and I got to taste tons, and I mean tonnsssss (count maybe 8 glasses? 🙊😜), of their delicious Sonoma county vino.
Apparently the winery is absolutely stunning on a sunny day, with the sun beating down on their back deck looking over the vineyards and Sonoma Valley mountains🌄….However, we were there on a cloudy rainy day and I can tell you it was equally charming. So cozy with a fire going and cushy chairs. I could’ve quite literally curled up there ALL day long.🔥🍷😊
I v often say, “don’t tempt me with a good time” but what I really mean is “don’t tempt me with a Viognier.” 😂 I LOVE them, and Arrowoods’ did not disappoint. 👌🏼💕 Paired perfectly with the carrots and actuallyyy, I learned that it can stand up well with almost any type of food! Winning again Viognier! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
The 3 food & wine pairings we had:
- 2015 Arrowood Saralee’s Vineyard Viogier with roasted baby heirloom carrots, saffron crema and honeyed almonds. 🥕🥕
- 2012 Arrowood Monte Rosso Vineyard Cabernet Savingnon with house ground polenta, braised oxtail, cocoa nibs, winter squash, sage pesto.
- 2013 Arrowood Proprietary Red Wine with black pepper ravioli, triple cream mornay, black truffles (👈🏼👈🏼👈🏼my favorite…but that could’ve just been cause of alllll the yummy sauce 👅💦).
And if you can believe it, we got to try 3 different Sonoma County Cabernets after that! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 Favorite of the trio was the Sonoma Valley, but maybe its cause the wine maker, Kristina Werner (one bad-ass lady btw) said it was lush like a big sexy lady 💃🏼💋 (and we all know how I like the ladies 😝😝). Jk I’m sure it’s because it was the 1 of 3 that you could drink for hours, with or without food. If going for a food pairing though, I’d grab the Alexander Valley Cab. 🍽😋🍷
Thanks so much to Arrowood Winery for putting on such a fabulous afternoon, and to Girl & the Fig for some seriously outstanding food pairings! Hop on the Arrowood train and use code Arrowood15 for 15% off online purchases!
