Barrymore by Carmel Road Pinot Grigio (SRP: $15.99)
Flavors of lemon drop, Asian pear and honeydew melon star alongside
the “wet stone” minerality that’s a hallmark of the Monterey region’s
rocky vineyards bring a bright and crisp taste to the palate. An
impeccable match for a wide range of dish pairings, from gnocchi brown
butter with fried sage to a Caprese salad.
Drew’s Blend Pinot Noir (SRP: $ 28)
With the Drew’s blend Pinot Noir, Carmel Road’s Pinot Noir expertise
meets the vivacious, free spirited charm of winemaking partner Drew
Barrymore. Drew and winemaker Kris Kato set out to craft this wine,
with the goal of offering a beautiful Pinot Noir featuring lush and
vibrant red fruit and warm spice notes, perfect for anytime.
And if you want to get fancy, and incorporate the red V-Day theme, try mixing up this recipe for strawberry sangria with Drew’s Pinot Grigio!
Strawberry Sangria with Drew Barrymore’s Pinot Grigio
8 cups fresh strawberries, trimmed and halved
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 bottle of Barrymore Pinot Grigio
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
2 cups sparkling water, chilled
To prepare syrup, in a large saucepan combine trimmed and halved strawberries, sugar, and water. Bring just to boiling, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat. Cover; cool to room temperature.
Press mixture, a little at a time, through a mesh sieve; discard solids (you should have about 3 cups syrup). In a 2-quart pitcher, stir together the syrup, wine, and sliced strawberries. Cover and chill up to 24 hours. Before serving, stir in the sparkling water. Serve in glasses and garnish with one more strawberry slice.
