We believe good attitude makes good food.


As each new wine is released at Palmina, Chrystal and Steve prepare winemaking and tasting notes. A critical part of these notes is the food pairing, for which they create a special dish just for that wine. The recipes for these dishes are presented here.

The recipes can also be searched using the Google engine - type an ingredient, dish name or wine, then click the blue button.
