When it comes time to enjoy a festive dinner with your family, friends and other loved ones this summer, we wanted to go a step further than just suggesting a few wines to try this season, so we have wine pairings directly from the source. While my personal favorites almost always includes a rich red with a steak, I know that we all need to venture out of our comfort zones sometimes, so we have a mix of flavors and influences to make you the hit of any dinner thanks to these expert wine pairings. Cheers!


Gehricke 2015 Zinfandel, Russian River Valley
Pairing: Herb-marinated Lamb Kebabs
“Our Zinfandel is quite fruit forward and spicy. It’s full bodied and rich on the palate so it can stand up to a lot of the heartier fare. I’m thinking Mediterranean herbs and spices and Middle Eastern cuisine. The lamb kebabs are perfection.” ~ Gehricke Winemaker Alex Beloz
