Food & Wine Pairing of the Month

Cortese Steamed Mussels

As you may know, all of our Wine Club shipments include a recipe meant to be paired with the new release wines included in the shipment. We've been asked repeatedly to share these food & wine pairings, so here's one of our most recent: classic and simple, steamed mussels paired with our 2015 Cortese, a wine with bracing acidity and refreshing minerality, meant to be enjoyed with seafood!


1 Bottle White Wine, 2015 Palmina Cortese
1 Quart Mussels
1 1/2 Cup Palmina Cortese
1 Shallot chopped fine
3 Tbls. Butter
1/2 tsp Dried Thyme
pinch of salt, pepper and Red
Pepper Flakes
2 Tbls. Fresh Parsley Chopped

Wash and clean the mussels. Throw out any fresh mussels that do not close when tapped.
Pour the wine, shallot, butter, thyme, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes into a saucepan. Bring to a
Add Mussels, cover the pan, turn heat down and steam the mussels for about 8 minutes until all
have opened. Throw out any unopened shells.
Put Mussels into a deep dish, pour over the broth and sprinkle with Parsley.
