“Rhubarb wine, really?!”
That was me, literally just 10 minutes ago.
Well, you can call me a believer now. A Rhubarb wine that is, actually pretty dry — and, tasty too!
Its musky nose and tart, vegetal flavor are an apt complement to this Poké bowl (Poke house & tea bar); cucumbers and seaweed salad, while cutting through the richness and umami of the salmon, spicy mayo and poké sauce.
Dang, that’s a good wine pairing if I do say so myself.
Hailing from the Bemidji area, Forestedge Winery (La Porte, MN) focuses on wines made from locally grown fruits, berries, and vegetables that survive Northern Minnesota’s long winters.
