Wine and Beer Guide

Whether you are raising your glass for a toast, or pouring it into a stock pot, wine and beer are equally great for cooking and enjoying.

Pairing Wine with a Creamy Mushroom Pasta

A Dry, Sparkling White

A bubbly brut will cut through creamy sauces and has enough depth and complexity to complement a diversity of seasonings and meaty mushrooms. Made in the traditional French Champagne method, cava uses a blend of Spanish grapes to create a soft sparkler with plenty of weight to ride alongside umami-rich mushrooms. Bottle aging gives these creamy, effervescent whites an earthy, yeasty depth without adding to the price tag.
