Recommendations from our Wine Director

October 3, 2014

Wine lovers! We sat down with our Wine Director, George Pitsironis, to ask him for some special wine pairing recommendations when eating at Union this week.
Just like our seasonal food menu, the wine menu is subject to change based on availability. To make a reservation to dine with us, just click the following link:
Francesco Borgogno, Nebbiolo Langhe, Piemonte 2012

“This is a great Nebbiolo we just got back in. It’s all Brunate fruit from younger vines and very small production. It drinks like a baby Barolo. We were able to secure a good amount of this small production gem to last through the holidays.”

This wine is paired well with:
The Porchetta
The Duck Agnolotti
The Tagliatelle with Pork Ragu.
The Pitman Farms Roasted 1/2 Chicken
The Wild Mushrooms and Polenta.
Colle Stefano, “Rosa di Elena” (Sangiovese), Le Marche 2013

“We just got this Rosé of Sangiovese in new. It’s a beautiful Rosé showing true restraint, brightness and freshness. This is the best Rosé I’ve tasted in years.”

This wine is paired well with:
The Caprese
The Antipasti
Inception, Pinot Noir, Central Coast 2011
George also makes his own wine and Inception is his winery which is located in Santa Barbara County. His central coast Pinot Noir is featured by the glass.

“It’s a great burgundian style of California Pinot Noir. One of our best red pairings on the menu is this Pinot Noir and the Squid Ink Garganelli.”

This wine is paired well with:
The Squid Ink Garganelli
The Duck Agnolotti
The Mussels & Guanciale
The Wild Mushroom
Ricotta Cavatelli
