July Menu Items


Catalina Shrimp Tacos with Cheese

Suggested Pairing: Margarita

Nothing screams summer like tacos and a margarita! Our Catalina shrimp tacos are tossed in a chimichurri sauce and key lime corn, so the bright lime flavors of margarita are the perfect match.

Sesame Crusted Mahi Mahi with Soy Ginger Butter over Rice

Suggested Pairing: Sauvignon Blanc

The best wines for Asian dishes are typically wines with high acidity. The clean, tangy Sauvignon Blanc balances the salty soy-ginger butter.

Georgia Peach Pork Chops

Suggested Pairing: Riesling

For this pairing, I focused on the best pairing for the slightly sweet peach sauce. Often with peaches, you want to choose a wine that is slightly sweeter and matches the flavor profile of a peach. A Riesling is slightly sweet with a fresh, crisp finish.

August Menu Items

Bacon Popper Chicken

Suggested Pairing: Prosecco

Pop the prosecco for the Bacon Popper Chicken! The spice of the jalapeno and the creaminess of the cream cheese sauce is cut perfectly from the crispness of sparkling wine.


Chimichurri Steak Kebabs

Suggested Pairing: Malbec

Since Argentina is the origin of chimichurri sauce, it only makes sense to pair it with a Malbec wine that is also from Argentina. The slight dryness of a Malbec is the perfect partner for both steak and the herbaceous Chimichurri sauce.

Slow Roasted Carolina BBQ Pork Tenderloin

Suggested Pairing: Pilsner Beer

Different types of BBQ call for different types of beer. For our Carolina BBQ pork, a lighter Pilsner matches perfectly with the vinegary mustard sauce of the pork. 


Peach Crisp
Suggested Pairing: Riesling

Riesling is the perfect match for a peach crisp as the wine itself has a peachy flavor profile. The peach-on-peach action will feel like summer in a bite!

berry_apple_bumble_blossomsBumble Blossoms
Suggested Pairing: Port

Our bumble blossoms have a beautiful mix of fruits and berries, making a rich port a great pairing. The port will bring forth any of the prominent fruit flavors while also cutting through the buttery pastry. Enjoy!
