Delicious Pairing Ideas For Everyone
From Chef Kristine
A Legacy of Pinot Noir
Schug Carneros Estate Winery celebrates the 40th anniversary of its first vintage, made when a passion for Pinot Noir led patriarch Walter Schug to establish his own label and eventually leave Joseph Phelps, where he was the founding winemaker crafting wines that put Napa Valley on the map.
In the European tradition, the Schug family encourages the enjoyment of wine with food – from everyday meals to festive celebrations. Chef Kristine dedicates her time to the development of recipes to complement each wine, and over the years countless guests have been treated to her delicious dishes.
From Chef Kristine: “I am always happy to teach and share what I have learned! Developing recipes for wine remains my passion to this day- it is a very satisfying way to work.”
