At Iron Hub Winery, we believe that wine and food are natural mates. Whether you like to try different combinations, or find just the right dish to go with one of our wines, we think our wines are at their peak when enjoyed with a meal.
We have created pairing suggestions to match each of our wines:
- Sauvignon Blanc – Pair with wild mushroom soup, grilled chicken, baked fish, pasta or asparagus – especially sautéed in garlic.
- Rosé – Pair with spicy sauces or crisp, light salads.
- Chardonnay – Pair with white fish, crab and chicken – especially creamy, buttery sauces or cheese such as extra-aged Asiago.
- Semillon – Pair with asparagus, mushroom couscous, crab, scallops, and other seafood.
- Barbera – Pair with grilled mozzarella and prosciutto, flatbread with fresh tomato, basil and roasted garlic.
- Sangiovese – Pair with sausage and caramelized onions, pork chops with plum conserve, or Italian dishes.
- Grenache – Pair with any grilled shellfish as well as salami, sliced ham and other charcuterie. Use to make sangria.
- Clockspring Zinfandel – Pair with barbeque, burgers, pizzas or ratatouille.
- Esola Zinfandel – Pair with grilled lamb chops, spicy tomato pasta dishes or hearty roasts and stews.
- Old Vine Zinfandel – Pair with ribs, pork chops or roasted chicken.
- Resolute (Red Blend) – Pair with lamb shanks, beef stew, or hearty traditional Italian dishes.
- Syrah – Pair with robust, hearty foods—from black bean chili with pork, to buffalo sliders or rich beef stews.
