Recipe Thursday: Springtime Alfresco Rosé Pairing

There’s something about the subtle hint of warm spring air that entices you to put away the chunky sweaters and start dusting off the outdoor furniture. This time of year also kicks off the unofficial start to rosé season (although, you’ll find us drinking rosé year-round!). Today, we’re celebrating spring and a spirit of renewal with an alfresco dining pairing that highlights the arrival of the new 2018 rosé vintage: the Saint Cyrgues Costières de Nîmes Rosé and Grilled Chicken Breast with Blackberry-Corn Salsa from The Kitchn.

This week’s rosé from Saint Cyrgues is bursting with notes of spring-time flowers, wild cherry and raspberry. So, what better dish to accompany it with than a lean protein and a fruit-forward, yet savory salsa? As Kristin Appenbrink from the Kitchn says, “The berries in the salsa make this dish especially suited to a glass of rosé. Plus, feel free to make the salsa as spicy as you like; rosé holds up well to spicy foods.”
