Wine Wednesday featuring #L'Ecole Granache Rose and Asian Shrimp Tacos with Gingered Rhubarb Sauce

I have been given the opportunity to be an ambassador for L'Ecole Wines.  This means that I receive two bottles of wine each month for a virtual taste testing with the staff of L'Ecole and for the purpose of creating a pairing to share with my readers on this blog.  I receive no monetary compensation and all opinions are 100% truthful and 100% my own.

This month we are sampling the Grenache Rose from Alder Ridge Vineyard in Horse Heaven Hills.

Summertime, Summertime, Sum, Sum, Summertime Weekly Menu

We got the Angel Face yesterday and get to keep her right through the weekend.  Last night we hung out at Michelle and Mark's so we could play in the pool.  I took my fish and all the fixins' over to their house and we had dinner together.

Difficult? Yes....Impossible? No #WinePW

Cheese and wine is a natural pairing, right?  Well, not always.  Sometimes those stinky cheeses that I love so much, Blue, Gorgonzola, Roquefort, etc. do not play well with wine.  They are too strong.  Don't get me wrong I still put at least one on my cheese platters when serving wine. I would just ignore that it wasn't wonderful.

So when Linda of My Full Wine Glass invited the members of Wine Pairing Weekend to join her in sharing Wine Pairings for Hard to Pair Foods my mind went immediately to this pairing.

Makoenva #EattheWorld

 We are traveling to Lesotho for this month's Eat the World Challenge.  Have you ever heard of Lesotho?  I hadn't.  Turns out it is a South African Country of over 2 million people located in the mountains.  

It sure looks beautiful.  I was anxious to learn about it and discover the foods they enjoy........
