What would you pair with shrimp, feta, and dill orzo? Open for red or white.

Had similar dish (ours didn't have dill) last night that paired nicely with Bethel Heights Pinot Blanc.

Sauvignon Blanc.

Or my go-to when nothing seems quite right. Champagne!

PH is rarely wrong, and he is not wrong here.

Guy recommended a Sauvignon Blanc. It was quite refreshing. Certainly will be delving into some more whites in the next few months.

Now I'm wondering what food might pair well with Viognier?

edit: amazing what a little search will do http://forums.winespectator.co...=472100305#472100305

If you dont have any Champers, definatly a Sauv. Blanc. Sancerre specifically.

Sauvignon Blanc would be my first choice with shrimp you will love the flavors it pulls from almost any sea food. Very good with mussels and scalopes too.

Echo the SB recs and particularly the Sancerre.

Would also try a Vinho Verde or lighter Gruner Veltliner.

PH had a great suggestion, but a nice Condrieu might do the trick as well.


Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

If you feel like splurging on a fabulous Condrieu, look for Rene Rostaing's 2009 La Bonnette, the best Condrieu I've ever tasted.


Just one more sip.

Thanks for the suggestion Board-O, I'll try to search some out.

Rene told me only 20 cases were being imported into the US. I should have asked him if I could buy some, but it didn't seem right to me to do it.


Just one more sip.
