The Study of Salmon Wine Pairing: Chardonnayphoto

“The Study Of” culinary series features an in-depth exploration of our favorite ingredients with recipes and drink pairings that will create an exceptional meal. Sonoma county winemakers, Don & Sons, have partnered with the Destination Culinary Collection to share their wine pairing recommendations for the current featured ingredient - salmon.

Salmon pairs exceptionally well with a medium-body Chardonnay. Don & Sons’ ‘Sonoma Signature’ Chardonnay 2010 has a touch of French Oak and creamy notes to add a nice texture and complexity to the wine. This Chardonnay, meant to savor, comes from Sonoma, California where early morning crisp coolness and a blanket of fog, followed by late morning sun, then a mid-afternoon cooling sea breeze  that gives way to the nightly return of fog, becomes the perfect recipe for a well-balanced wine.

 “The Study Of” culinary series features an in-depth exploration of ingredients with the chefs of the Destination Culinary Collection. Each quarter, we unveil a new gastronomic topic for our chefs to examine through cooking demonstrations, educational lectures, innovative recipes or sumptuous tastings. Our current featured ingredient is salmon. Visit “The Study Of” to view chef recipes, cooking tips and video demonstrations.
