PAIRING MENU BELOW

2022 Chardonnay, Yakima Valley paired with:
Fior di Latte
(Fresh Mozzarella) - Fior di Latte, or "blossom of milk" translated in English, is a fresh, whole milk mozzarella with a delicate flavor and texture. They make this cheese the old fashioned way using Italian cultures instead of vinegar to give you the full mozzarella flavor that this well-known cheese deserves.

2020 Merlot paired with:
Fontina - A rich and creamy aged cheese with a smooth, almost silky texture. Their whole milk version of this cheese has a natural rind as opposed to the washed-rind style produced in the valleys of northern Italy. It has a complex floral and sweet flavor with butterscotch or brown sugar notes, and less pungent than the washed rind versions of this cheese.


2020 Cabernet Sauvignon, Wahuke Slope paired with:
Bonneville
- a decadent double cream wheel, washed in Syrah over several weeks as it reaches maturity. Savor the aroma of the grapes as you bring this cheese to your lips, giving you a taste of Dubrul Vineyards Estate wine from Cote Bonneville. This vineyard is special to Daniel because it was planted in 1992 the year he was born, and in his hometown within the Yakima Valley. The extra cream is added to an already rich milk, lending to the fudgy texture and deep yellow color.


2020 Malbec paired with:
Asiago Fresco- Their Asiago Fresco uses cow’s milk that is cheese pressed into a thin wheel with a firm and somewhat open texture, and is styled after the Pressata style of this cheese in Italy which is typically only aged 2-3 months. The whole milk gives this young version a sharp and grassy flavor.


2018 Anthony Cellars Three Vineyards paired with:
Roundbale- The flavor profile background of this Pacific Northwest Original Parmesan cheese is distinctly nutty with a subtle sweetness in the mid palate reminiscent of a well aged Parmigiano, but finishes with a tropical fruit note. ACS Winner in 2019 - 1st Place USA Parmesan. Truly the top quality “Grana” or hard-grating style cheese.

What does “minimal interventionist” mean?

Many wines today are more akin to a twinkie than a loaf of bread. The industrialization of wine production has demanded that wine taste the same year after year, and as such most domestic wine has been shaped by way of chemical additives. We think wine is best when we let it do its thing, so our winemaking techniques are more hands-off, with little to nothing added to the wine during or after fermentation.
