August Ridge Italian Family Recipes
Food and wine have always been intrinsically linked in the Italian culture: one simply does not go without the other. In Jill’s Italian family, the dining table was bare without both a meal and a bottle of wine to accompany it. In Italy, wine is never the focal point—it’s contextual to what is being served. Our “Cal-Ital” wines are crafted in the same spirit of sharing wine and meals with friends and family. Our wines feature the mid-palate complexity, spice, and pepper that you want in a food-friendly wine, with the higher acid and balanced tannins that serve as palate cleansers between bites. Our goal at August Ridge is to make traditionally styled and thoughtfully aged wines ready to be opened today, or capable of cellaring to share years in the future. Wines to be opened as you gather for a meal, surrounded by friends, family, and loved ones.
