Beet Salad and Wine?
Beet salad is a great summertime treat. The beautiful red/pink hue of beets lend themselves to a stunning table display and the delicious sweet crunch of the vegetable itself is light and heavenly on a hot day. However, beets are tricky to pair with wine because they are quite sweet and usually adorned with vinegar. Although not a food that is commonly paired with wine I might suggest a fruitier Sauvignon Blanc or Rosé to pick up the beet's sweeter undertones. Thoughts?
