Bernie Sun is the corporate beverage director for acclaimed chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s four-star restaurant group and recently received a 2010 James Beard award for Outstanding Wine Service for Jean Georges Restaurant.
From Bernie we learned so much about his favorite wines and the ones he recommends are perfect for this time of year!!!
First, Cremant d'Alsace, Baur NV (approx. $20). This wonderful wine carries notes of lemon and apple and has a creamy aspect to its character. Try pairing this wine with diver's scallops with horseradish.
Here's another choice from a James Beard award-winning wine master: Gruner Veltiner, Nikolai Hof, 2007. This wine (about $25) carries notes of white pepper and is crisp and works well with crab dishes.
Finally, this Beaux Freres, Pinot Noir 2007 (Approx. $60). Strawberries, dark cherries and other dark fruits are perfect for beef such as grilled steaks.
Special thanks to 2010 James Beard Foundation award winner, Bernie Sun, for these great "Winesday" selections!!!
