    St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, Lilly. I’m not drinking beer. Any wine pairing recommendations for traditional Irish fare? I’m talking Shepherd’s Pie, Stew, Corned Beef and Cabbage, Irish Soda Bread. I look forward to hearing from you – thanks! By the way, my favorite wine I purchase at the Co-op in Lebanon lately is Bluebird Pinot Noir. I also like Billi Billi Shiraz. After trying a white I like at The Naughty Vine in Claremont (specializing in wine, cheese & chocolate from the Northeast Region) and a red I wrote about in the past (http://stayworkplay.org/blog/best-burdicks-walpole-mountain-view-wine/), I’m open to local options, as well.

    That’s a tough one Shanon since so many traditional Irish meals are beer based.

    I’d suggest, if you are looking for a light refreshing white than Starborough is a great choice. It has layers of tropical fruit on top of the crisp citrus notes, because the grapes are grown more inland in New Zealand. The bottle is bright green so you’ll see it on display in most grocery stores around St. Patrick’s Day.

    For a red paired with a hardy meal I would suggest Carnivor. This is a big, bold, smooth Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s considered “The King of Reds” and will go well with your stew. It’s not overpowering in flavor that you need to have a meal with it. I’d say start with a glass while cooking!

    I hope this was helpful!
