The aromas of cherry, raspberry, tangerine and minerals are in harmony in this lovely wine and once more show us the nature of the Keller Estate terroir. The lively acidity on the palate reminds us that this wine is meant to express the most delicate side of Pinot Noir, while making for a great wine to be paired with summer fare. To continue on this voyage to the south of France we share with you a family recipe for pissaladière, a flavorful onion flatbread that work beautifully as an appetizer to pair with our Rosé!

Wine Pairing: 2006 Zenato Valpolicella and 2006 Nalle, Dry Creek Valley, Zinfandel

Napoletana pizza is what you find the locals eating in Naples. The dough is stretched thin and sauced lightly, and topped with fresh mozzarella cheese, and fresh basil. The pizza is baked in a wood fired oven at 750 degrees minimum. The pizza is so thin in the center that eating with a knife and fork is preferred. The outer crust is light an airy and enjoyed dipped in olive oil.
