Pick of the Week: Batasiolo Barbera d’Alba 2018, Italy

“And Now Pair This” results:

Spaghetti with (basic) meat sauce: Giacondi Sangiovese, Italy (yet again) or Tsantali Rouge, Greece

Bacon Lettuce Tomato Sandwich with Mayo: Prosecco

Grilled Salmon: For white, a Siegerrebe or an Ortega from Vancouver Island. For red, a Pinot Noir or Gamay Noir (such as beaujolais)

Butternut Squash Soup: Amontillado, a style of sherry out of Spain, or a Marsala, fortified wine from Italy (Rod notes, if there’s a lot of ginger in the soup drink a beer instead!)
