Top 10 Food & Wine Pairings of the Week

Instagram is constantly shining with mouth-watering food and wine combinations that steadily motivate you & me for taking up the practice of cooking or serious wine tasting. Yeah, getting shit-faced with 10 bottles at dinner is cool, but let’s appreciate the art form these people are strenuously creating day after day. Here are the most interesting pairings of this week. Post a photo on Instagram with the #grapenomad hashtag and get published on our site!

Murgo Etna Rosso + Cheese & Ham Board

Gran Espanoso Brut Vintage Cava + Brownies

Weingut Stadt Krems Grüner Veltliner + Garlic-Ginger-Sriracha Shrimp

Umani Ronchi Casal di Serra Vecchie Vigne Verdicchio + Ceviche Classico

Calyptra Vivendo Rosé Reserve + Tomato Prosciutto Bruschetta

Tenuta I Gelsi Aglianico del Vulture + Cheese Board

Ouch that guy on tv looks not happy…but I am 😎 Tenuta I Gelsi Aglianico del Vulture / Basilicata 2012 DOC (85 points) From the Basilicata region comes this nice red one. In the glass it shows a garnet red color. In the nose aromas of cherry and plum jam, blueberries, currant, licorice and a hint of tobacco, pepper and balsamic. The palate is still young with firm but fine grained tannins that melt with the red fruit, fine spices. I think this will even be better over 5 years. #basilicata #tenutaigelsi #wine #redwine #aglianicodelvulture #aglianico #thestoryofmywine #wineoclock #wineoftheday #winestagram #instawine #wineblog #winelover #winetime #winelife #goswijn #goswijnsimons #instavino #wineporn #winegeek #italy #vinoteca #docg #rodewijn #vinrouge

Diemersdal Sauvignon Blanc + Farfalle Pasta with Walnut Pesto

Chateau Pegau Cuvée Lone Cotes du Rhone + Rainbow Trout

Laurence Feraud is a badass. Period. A woman who's taken her family into a direction of stardom with the terroir of the Cotes-Du-Rhone being the foundation of her portfolio. Chatuea Pegau 2015 Cuvée Lone walks you right to the stoney vines with a nose of wet stone and lemon tart, tasting green apple and definite minerality of the region followed with a beautiful clean tart mildly acidic finish. Fantastic buy and I am looking forward to tasting through her entire portfolio! #cheers #V4Vino #internationalwomensday . . . . #vino #wine #chateaupegau #cotesdurhone #frenchwine #ilovewine #vino #lauranceferaud #cuvee #whitewine #winewednesday #whatsinyourglass #wineglasswoman #iamwoman #winetime #winedown #wineporn #rainbowtrout #winepairing #vino #winedownwednesday
