Recipe Thursdays: A Summer Produce Star with Diwald Gruner Veltliner

Nothing depicts the height of summer produce better than a sun-kissed tomato ripening on the vine. Farmers’ markets and grocery stores are now teeming with the juicy, sweet fruit, displaying itself in a myriad of sunset orange hues and deep crimson shades of red.

It’s not difficult to find a recipe that will put tomatoes front and center, but what can be tricky is finding the right wine to pair with a tomato-centric dish. Perhaps you want to take a break from the predictable (yet always satisfying) tomato sauce and rustic red, and try something fitting for a hot, sunny afternoon. Enter this beautiful Tomato-Lemon Tart from Bon Appétit – a simple, golden pastry crust topped with luscious tomatoes, zesty lemon, savory garlic and fresh basil.

The perfect wine to accompany the recipe? The zippy Gruner Veltliner “Grossriedenthaler Löss” from Weingut Diwald in Wagram, Austria.

We love how the crisp, bright citrus character and warm spice notes of this Gruner complement the oven-roasted tomatoes and zingy lemon in this dish from  Bon Appétit. A darling of the culinary world, you can’t go wrong with Gruner – it’s delicately perfumed aromatics and mouth-watering acidity pair remarkably well with most foods.
