Food and Wine Pairings

Steak Caprese Stack With Cherry Balsamic Vinaigrette

This isn’t your typical steak salad. With stacked layers of grilled flat iron steak, heirloom tomatoes, basil leaves and fresh mozzarella, it’s the merging of two classic dishes into a new expression of steak salad. It’s made even better with the addition of Columbia Winery Merlot and its enticing aroma of cherry making it’s the perfect complement to the Cherry Balsamic Vinaigrette drizzled atop this new classic.

Rosemary Salmon Skewers With Raspberry Sauce

Salmon and raspberry. A classic Pacific Northwest flavor combination. But imagine it not as an entrée, but rather, a mouthwatering appetizer accompanied by a rich, medium-bodied Columbia Winery Composition Red Blend with notes of ripe red berries. It’s the perfect way to express your individuality with a nod toward the classics.

Maple Chipotle Pork Chop, Carmelized Onions, and Blackberry Sauce

Traditional Cabs are often seen alongside a rib-eye steak…but this is no traditional Cab. Columbia Winery Cabernet Sauvignon is part of the new generation of Cabs. Progressive. Elegant. Expressive. With dark fruit flavors of blackberry and black currant layered with notes of toasty oak and cocoa, this rich full-bodied wine isn’t relegated to the beef department. Serve it alongside a thick-cut pork chop with a sweet and savory blackberry sauce to taste the expression of berry in every glass.

Crab Cake Lettuce Wraps With Lime Red Pepper Sauce

With juicy chunks of Dungeness crab and the crisp of fresh lettuce, Crab Cake Lettuce Wraps are a distinctive fusion of two favorite appetizers in one delectable dish. This new expression of a classic appetizer pairs beautifully with another new expression, Columbia Winery Chardonnay. With its balanced acidity and taste of Northwest apples and pears, it’s the perfect complement to fresh shellfish such as crab and mussels.

Apple Almond and Cheese Salad Bites

Sometimes it’s okay to play with your food. Buck the traditional salad by nestling delicious salad bits within a lettuce leaf for a hand-held salad bite that pairs perfectly with a glass of crisp Chardonnay. With bright aromas of Northwest apples, Columbia Winery Chardonnay nuanced flavors are the ideal match for this unique take on salad.
