There are many ways to celebrate #SauvBlanc Day on May 16th, 2014, but we’re going with these 2 Killer Pairings from Wine Channel TV celebrity host Jessica Altieri:

Killer Pairings St. Supery #SauvBlanc Day

#SauvBlanc Day Killer Pairings #1:

St. Supery Dollarhide Estate Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc with Grilled Ecuadorian Swordfish

At Wine Channel TV, some of our favorite wines come from the St. Supery Vineyard of Napa Valley. One of their wines that will always stand out is the Dollarhide Estate Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc wine that is perfect with seafood. In fact, for a killer pairing, prepare Grilled Ecuadorian Swordfish for an amazing dinner at home. For the full recipe, be sure glaze the swordfish with mustard char and serve it with shaved brussel sprouts; almonds, Manchego cheese, and a Meyer lemon vinaigrette. Since Sauvignon Blanc has a nice lemon zest taste, the Dollarhide wine will bring out the flavors of the almonds and Manchego cheese in this dish.

With this unique killer pairing, I’m sure your taste buds will thank you! What makes the Dollarhide Sauvignon Blanc a refreshing wine, is the ongoing tradition decade after decade that everyone continues at the vineyard from the Founder, Robert Skalli, and CEO, Emma Swain to the winemakers. Dollarhide Estates has been kept mostly in its original state with rough terrain, floral, and fauna. Enjoy the season with a chilled white wine and fresh seafood dish for a killer pairing and if you feel extra bold, try out this Grilled Ecuadorian Fish with a chilled glass of Dollarhide Sauvignon Blanc. For more great pairings, be sure to check out the summer section about Sauvignon Blanc in my book, Kiss My Glass; to help you find great wines without breaking the bank.

#SauvBlanc Day Killer Pairing #2:

St. Supery Vineyards Napa Valley Estate Virtu with a Lobster Roll Sandwich

Want the perfect killer pairing for a late afternoon lunch on #SauvBlanc Day?A lobster roll sandwich with St. Supery Vineyards Napa Valley Estate Virtu is guaranteed to taste amazing anytime, anywhere. The fresh lobster meat combined with Hellman’s mayonnaise and diced celery on a fresh roll will really bring out the creamy texture of this Oak cask wine. With this killer pairing, who can say no one of the most loved types of seafood and a glass of wine that really enhance the flavors of both?

St. Supery Vineyards Napa Valley Estate Virtu is an exceptional wine alone even when it is not paired with lobster. The Virtu wine is a blend of combined Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon that has been left to fermet in a stainless steel cask. This white wine has a soft blend of yellow hues with lemon and lime with stand-out flavors of honeydew, fig, and kiwi with a hint of French Oak. You will notice that the taste of the French Oak really brings out the light citrus flavors.

Cheers to #SauvBlanc Day and St. Supery!
