this weekend's selection

With yesterday's smoky ribs, we chose to pair a robust red from the Manduria region of Italy. Italy's version of the Zinfandel grape is the Primitivo. High in alcohol, fruity and robust, it stood up nicely to the sweet and spicy sauce on the ribs.

Tonight's dinner was perfectly paired with a zesty Sauvignon Blanc from France. Ideal for serving with seafood and dishes with creamy sauces, this wine quickly reached near the top of our list of favorite summer whites. Its refreshing floral and citrus notes kept us cool on this warm summer day and was even more perfect as we sipped it between bites.

I'm dying to tell you about tonight's dinner, as it was one of my favorites of all time. But you'll have to stay tuned to find out...
