Picnic Pairings

Twin Cities Live’s Wine Guy, Haskell’s Ted Farrell, shares his picks for vino that pair well with picnic essentials.

Featured wines:

Chips pairing: Bacio della Luca Prosecco

Cheese pairing: Macon Lugny

Ham sandwich pairing: Dolecetto d’Alba Batasiolo

Dessert pairing: Chateau des Mille Anges

Fruit sauce:

Equal parts butter, dark rum and brown sugar.

Melt together to dissolve the sugar. When cool, add cut fruit to rum mixture. When ready to grill, place fruit over indirect heat. Sugar will carmelize in a short amount of time. It’s great served over ice cream!

Stop by Haskell’s Wine Bar in downtown Minneapolis thru Wednesday, July 18 and mention Twin Cities Live to get buy one, get one free on their deli sandwiches.
