1958 marked the first vintage of Stony Hill Gewurztraminer, a revered grape variety from Alsace and the Alto Adige in northern Italy. It’s a very aromatic wine and we make it in a crisp, light and dry style. With its rose petal and lychee flavors and crisp acidity, it is a palate-cleansing wine perfect with foods rich in fat, and delicious, too, with spicy Asian dishes.

1957 marked the first vintage of Stony Hill Gewurztraminer, the ancient and revered varietal grape of Alsace. We make it crisp, light and dry to complement our California cooking, which is so influenced by the spicy cuisines of Mexico and Asia. Try the Chicken Posole and Quick Fried Shrimp for tasty matches.

Chicken Posole
June 8, 2016
This is a traditional Mexican soup made with hominy, or posole. It’s generally made with pork, but we like to add meat from a roasted chicken, and you can make it as spicy as you want. The posole gives it a rich corn flavor.

This recipe features all the best flavors of the many Chinese Chicken Salad recipes we have tasted over the years. Stony Hill’s crisp, light, dry Gewurztraminer is our choice to accompany it.

Peter found this recipe in the Rick Bayless Mexico One Plate at a Time cook book and has simplified it for our low-key style of entertaining. It’s guaranteed to elicit wows from all your guests and at the same time complement the fruitiness of our Stony Hill Gewurztraminer. Serving is easy. All you need is a medium sized platter and enough toothpicks to spear the cooked shrimp. Enjoy!
