This 2012 Dry Vignoles is an excellent example of what can be done with this malleable varietal. With natural fruit characteristics that are not lost via the fermentation process, do not hesitate to indulge (especially at $20 a bottle) when you dine and drink at Prasino in St. Charles, MO.
With Hints of green apple, pineapple, and pear, this Noboleis wine is intoxicatingly fragrant. The kissable initial tartness smooths out as you are left thirsting for more.
Prasino is one of our favorite local St. Charles spots for delicious eats, and they do their best to stay as local as possible when it comes to food, wine, beer and liquor. They also have a chic atmosphere and one of the best brunches in St. Louis.
This Vignoles tames anything of spice and pairs well with the Short Rib Nachos or the Wood-Fired Wings. Enjoy your wine with a mountain of nachos or 8-12 wings for the happy hour price of only $6. Prasino's whole menu focuses on farm-free ingredients that really come through in their dishes.
If you want something harder, try Pickney Bend Distillery's Whiskey! (HINT: It's completely worth the trip to visit this distillery in New Haven, take the tour, and sample one of their phenomenal gin and tonics.) Prasino also offers Chandler Hill Vineyard's Chambourcin Rosé with hints of strawberry and rhubarb leading the way in this delightfully, pleasant springtime reminder.
