Meat Marvels

From barbeque pork ribs to a robust leg of lamb or any big, hearty meal, our Old Vine Zinfandel’s richness makes it a perfect match for red meat and smoked chili-infused dishes ~ like baby back ribs, brisket, and spicy sausages. It’s worth the wait to stand in line at local legend Lockeford Sausages for a Smoked Dakota Bratwurst to savor with your glass of Zinfandel.

Cheeseboard Elegance

Elevate your cheeseboard experience with our Old Vine Zinfandel ~ pairs exceptionally well with stronger cheeses, smoked varieties, and blues. Try it with the bold notes of Gorgonzola for a delightful combination. Visit our tasting room to indulge in a selection of curated cheeses hand selected by our Tasting Room Manager, Nicole Fasciana. Red Butte Hatch Chili by Beehive Cheese is a staff favorite to pair with our Estate Friedlander Old Vine Zinfandel.

Braised Delights: Big and Beefy, Slow and Savory

Whether it's short ribs, ox cheek, or a Mexican mole, Zinfandel shines when paired with big, beefy creations cooked long and slow.

Loaded Burgers and Zin's Coping Skills

Indulge on loaded burgers with cheese, bacon, onions, and pickles ~ Zinfandel copes effortlessly with these robust flavors. The delightful acidity found in Andis Zinfandel slices through the richest of burgers ~ infusing a burst of fruitiness that enlivens the meat.

Grilled Vegetables and Roasted Roots: A Harmony of Flavors

Prefer a veggie option? Our Zinfandel pairs seamlessly with grilled vegetables like eggplant, bell peppers, and zucchini. Extend the pairing to roasted root vegetables, such as carrots, beets, and sweet potatoes, for a winter feast.

Soul-Warming Soups: Zinfandel's Hold on Hearty Stews

Experience the warmth of winter with Zinfandel's ability to hold up to heartiness. Pair it with tomato-based soups and stews like minestrone or tomato bisque for a comforting and flavorful combination. A guest favorite, we recommend pairing our Zinfandels with Pumpkin Sausage Soup. This delightful combination of robust root vegetables and savory sausage embodies two classic Zinfandel pairings.

As the winter chill sets in, let our Old Vine Zinfandel be your culinary companion. Experience these pairings throughout the month of January at our tasting room. RSVPs recommended. Walk-ins welcome.
