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. ​

Recipe ingredients:​

- 2 cups cubed watermelon​
- Pour a dash of Ménage à Trois California White over each watermelon bite, if you choose​
- One 10-ounce package feta cheese, cut into cubes ​
- Balsamic glaze​

Instructions: ​

1. Assemble watermelon feta appetizer bites by layering a cube of watermelon, then feta cheese, and then topping it with another cube of watermelon onto a cocktail skewer or toothpick.​
2. If making ahead of time, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until about 15-25 minutes before serving.​
3. Just before serving, drizzle with balsamic glaze.

Grapes to Glory: Smooth, Sensuous Silk Wine

Discover the captivating backstory behind every bottle with Grapes to Glory, a wine series that pays homage to our wine of the month by providing insight into our delectable varietals, from the picking down to the sipping.

It’s time to get to know a wine so seductively soft, with a texture so lustrous and smooth, it could only be called — what else? — Silk. 

We’re all for a bit of smooth talking here at Ménage à Trois, and it doesn’t get any smoother than the exquisitely soft sensation of Silk as it glides over your lips and across your palate. Brimming with alluring aromas, full-bodied, bright-red fruit flavors, and a marvelous mouth feel, you might say that Silk exposes the softer side of Ménage à Trois.

When it comes to crafting this silky varietal, our winemakers weave their magic with grapes from the marine-influenced vineyards in California’s Central Coast, North Coast, and Lodi-Delta appellations. Pinot Noir with seamless cherry flavors, Malbec with velvety softness, and Petite Sirah with alluring depth come together in a blissful blend through unique fermentation methods that result in a delicately textured, ultra-smooth wine with supple tannins. Grapes are cold-soaked and then gently pressed to silky perfection.

Silk beckons, promising an unforgettable experience for the senses, with succulent cherry and ripe raspberry flavors that mingle with delicate hints of rose petals and toasty spice. Gliding gracefully across your palate like liquid silk, the wine’s unique texture and flavors stand out with a hint of sweet, spicy French and American oak. The result? The smoothest, softest, silkiest wine you’ve ever tasted.

Grapes to Glory: Midnight Wine

When our boldly curious founders decided to “experiment threely” and blend together a luscious threesome of distinctively different grapes into one wine, they knew it needed a name that would live up to this innovative, provocative blend. They called it Ménage à Trois. Not just because it was a revolutionary three-grape blend, but because like its taste it deserved a name that would never blend in. Today, Ménage à Trois continues exploring and creating two-, three-, and four-grape Red Blends, White Blends, and even a Gold Chardonnay wine blend like only Ménage à Trois could.

Welcome to our new Ménage à Trois Wine series called “Grapes to Glory” – every month, we’ll be bringing you captivating “Grapes to Glory” stories about each one of our wine blends – from the inside out.

So get ready to explore your deepest, darkest desires. Savor the pleasures of the dark with mysterious Midnight, a sumptuous wine that goes beyond your basic red with flavors like bold blackberry and plush spiced plum. It’s dark, it’s daring, it’s dusky – and it’s dangerously delicious.

When it comes to crafting this expressive blend, our winemakers spare no expense. And lucky for us, they aren’t afraid of the dark. As a matter of fact, they lavish in it, embracing the deep, shadowy boldness that defines this gorgeous garnet varietal. The result is a truly uninhibited blend – something deeper, darker, and more uninhibited than ever before.

In true Ménage à Trois style, Midnight subscribes to our “the more, the merrier” mantra with a blend of not three, but four different types of grapes: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sarah, and Petit Verdot. Merlot adds a plush, velvety texture, while Cabernet Sauvignon offers elegance and power. Petite Sirah lends inky intensity, and Petit Verdot imparts a deep violet color and concentrated fruit. To round out the flavors, the wine is aged in French and American oak. The result is a wine that leaves an indelible impression.

It’s mysterious and dark, soft and sensual – just like Midnight.
