Catch The Right Wine to Dish With Your Fish.

Which wine pairs best with which fish? The answer is as varied with the different shades of summer.
Sure, as a rule, white wines do pair stunningly with most fish. However, other wines pair better with different fish recipes.

Here are a few quick tips to pick just the right wines for your fish dishes:
The featured Lemon Salmon with Garlic Rice recipe is the perfect match for a light-bodied white wine, like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio.
Oysters and our fun and bubbly Ménage à Trois Prosecco are an amazing pairing/combo.
Lobsters, scallops, mussels and clams, pair enticingly with our Ménage à Trois white wines.
When serving lobster as the main course, or in a salad, we recommend Sauvignon Blanc, or Chardonnay.
For seafood pastas and risottos, even the ones with fresh tomato-based pasta sauces, Ménage à Trois Pinot Grigio offers the right light-bodied pairing.
If you decide to go French and prepare the Classic Nicoise Salad, Ménage à Trois Rosé Wine is a superb match.

Dish your fish with this summer-easy recipe, and pair with Ménage à Trois Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio.

Our Ménage à Trois White Wine Cocktail Inspired by the City of Love​

Where did the idea of French kissing come from? We know Paris is the city of love and dreamy accents, but how did the French kiss come to be?​

The French kiss was only recently added to the dictionary. Prior to that, “galocher,” the verb that means “to kiss with tongues,” was straight-up slang. How could the creators of the French kiss not even define their type of smooching? Well, they didn’t exactly come up with the phrase “French kiss.” ​

In fact, it was actually once called a “Florentine kiss.” According to the Associated Press, French kissing came from British and American soldiers returning home from Europe after World War I. Many chose to greet their wives and girlfriends with the sensual kissing adventurousness they saw from the French. Even though we credit the English soldiers for the popular term, the French were the ones who showed us all how it’s done. ​

So we invite you to do as the French do. After all, we all know Paris is the city of love, and you’re going to love our signature Ménage à Trois White Wine Cocktail: The French Kiss.​

The French Kiss cocktail recipe: ​
4 oz. of any Ménage à Trois White Wine​
0.5 oz. pineapple juice​
0.5 oz. raspberry syrup ​

Directions:​
1. Pour all ingredients over ice in a shaker, cap, and shake vigorously. ​
2. Pour into a martini glass. ​
3. Garnish using fresh raspberries and fresh or dried pineapple. You may also do a partial caramel rim with shaved white chocolate and a raspberry. The latter is a bit more Parisienne. ​
