Summer on a plate: California’s wild salmon season is in full swing, and this year’s catch is bountiful. Set the table outdoors and enjoy your thick, seared salmon fillets with a fresh corn salad, because sweet corn is peaking now, too. A warm evening is all the excuse you need to take your seafood dinner al fresco with a cool carafe of California wine.
Which Wine? California wild salmon is succulent and silky, with rich, robust flavor. One more reason to love it: it makes an equal-opportunity meal. Medium-intensity red wines, like Pinot Noir and Merlot, are just as compatible with it as white varietals and summer’s zippy rosés. Everybody’s happy!
New numbers for sustainability: Recent research suggests that consumers, wine distributors, restaurant wine buyers, and retailers are seeking sustainably produced wine choices. Demand continues to climb, especially among Millennials, and a new survey of the trade reveals that wine professionals expect the audience to grow.
