A Mushroom, Pork and Pinot Menu You’ll Be Wild About!

on February 19, 2019

EnRoute Russian River Pinot Noir

Get ready to go wild for this mushroom, pork and Pinot Noir menu from our winery kitchen. The quintessential pairing here is the pork tenderloin and our flagship Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, EnRoute “Les Pommiers,” but the wild mushrooms (foraged or store-bought) take it to heavenly levels!

“It’s a mushroom forager’s favorite time of year here in Northern California. Although I’ve long enjoyed harvesting my own mushrooms, I recently had the pleasure of going on my first professionally guided wild mushroom hunt. It was rainy and cold as we trekked out to coastal Jenner, but the soggy day spent digging in the dirt rewarded us with a roasted mushroom feast that evening. That impromptu supper inspired the roasted mushroom and pork recipe below. It’s woodsy, meaty and fantastic with our EnRoute Pinot Noir, “Les Pommiers.” I’m excited to share it with you!”  – Executive Chef Sarah Walz

From the EnRoute Kitchen: A Favorite Russian River Wine and Food Pairing

As we slowly transition into spring, we invite you to warm up the last nights of winter with one of our favorite Russian River wine and food pairings: Roasted Duck Breast with Agrodolce and our flagship EnRoute Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, “Les Pommiers.”

Our winery chef, Sarah Walz, loves the subtly sweet yet sour flavor profile that a sauce agrodolce lends rich, tender meats like duck breast. For this particular recipe, we turn to saba, a grape-based syrup that can best be described as akin to balsamic but softer, rounder and less acidic. If you can’t find a high-quality saba near you,  Balsamic Reserve can serve as a palate-pleasing substitute.
