Insects, Bugs and Spiders… Oh, My!

Use a light-bodied wine

A lot of acidity (from orange juice and mustard) goes into the marinade for this fish dish, but not a lot sticks around in the final preparation. That’s a blessing because it allows for a wider range of both white and red wines to accompany it. Salmon is one of the oilier fish, which makes some light-bodied red wines sing with it. Suggestions come along for a dry rose, a light red and a high-acid white. Stay away from big-bodied red wines on this one. Likewise, avoid overly oaky whites.

Stock up on inexpensive whites, pinks for summer

As temperatures creep toward — even into — triple digits, we think more and more about refreshing wines to enjoy in the Great Northwest. And with summer’s arrival, so too shall we load up with bright white and crisp rosé wines.
