Every Spring I look forward to nature’s bounty of fresh asparagus, fiddleheads, and ramps (wild leeks) and try to incorporate them as much as possible into my suppertime meals. The season for these delicious fresh vegetables grown in our own backyard is very short so it always seems like a special time of year.
Unfortunately, these vegetables can be quite unfriendly with wine, turning the combination into something that just…well…doesn’t taste good. But, there are some wines that do, in fact, pair well with these troublesome veggies, so I thought it would be fun to ask you, my readers, for your favourites. Fill out the survey below and let me know what wines you like to serve with asparagus, fiddleheads, and/or ramps. If you would like to add more information then leave a reply in the comment area below.
For more information on wines that pair well with asparagus read my post, “Wine and Asparagus – Not an Impossible Pairing”.
