If you know anything about Southern cooking, then you know there is a special time of the year when fried green tomatoes are a menu must-have. We were treated to this simple, yet iconic dish by none other than our own Georgia woman, Andrea Creato. This southern staple just sings the song of summertime with a perfect balance of tart green tomato & fried-salty savoriness. The crunch and the spice is soul-satisfyingly delectable! We paired this special taste of summer with our Rose ’19, the bright fruity notes complemented the unripe tomato while the crisp acidity and dewy minerality played well with the fried element. Our team agreed that the Brut Rose would also have been a phenomenal choice as well (think about that salty crunch with those bubbles- a match made in pairing heaven!). This dish is easy with simple ingredients most everyone keeps in the pantry, so snag a few of those green tomatoes from the garden, grab a skillet & get fryin’!
