A glass of cold white wine and an easy dinner is the perfect way to end any day or begin any Summer night. Our Vidal Blanc, a dry white wine with notes of grapefruit and a fresh, citrus finish take this Shrimp Pasta with a White Wine Sauce to new heights.
A healthy splash of our Vidal Blanc gives this simple, light meal a wonderful flavor and there is plenty of wine left in the bottle for you and your guests to enjoy with dinner!
This dish only takes minutes to prepare and is perfect for any weeknight. If you didn’t pick up any Vidal Blanc on your last visit to our tasting room, then feel free to substitute any of our other dry white wines such as our un-oaked Chardonnay, our dry Gewurztraminer- Magnolia White or even our off-dry, Ivory Mist.
