Next Chapter Winery Velvet Vines (Frontenac Gris) - Minnesota Uncorked™

Next Chapter Winery Velvet Vines (Frontenac Gris)

My co-workers had some great suggestions when I asked what to pair with shrimp pad thai: Riesling, Gruner Veltliner, Jacquère…. I was also thinking maybe an extra dry sparkling wine or Champagne — because lets be honest, I’m always looking for a reason to pop some bubbly.

I reached for Next Chapter Winery’s Frontenac Gris 2015, and the pairing was sublime — tasting notes in comments below. If you were curious about the agreeability of Frontenac Gris, the verdict is in: this well-crafted wine at 5 years was still going strong, and would expect it to get even better over the next few.

What do you like to pair with pad thai?
