You love wine and food, so we have another pairing for you. Shannon Brown, a long time team member of Bingham Family Vineyards, is here to share her expertise at creating wonderful wine and food pairings. Gather the wine and the ingredients, and try another pairing with us.

I started looking for this type of recipe when I had Cloudburst with roasted red pepper hummus and the flavors melded so well. This is a light summer dish I am sure you will enjoy!

My Bingham Variation

After Shannon mentioned pairing our Cloudburst white wine blend with roasted red pepper hummus, I had to try that first.

And yes, it was lovely.

The salmon with the roasted red pepper sauce was wonderful as was the bottle of 2018 Cloudburst that was finished off pretty quickly.

Our 2018 Cloudburst won a gold medal at the 2020 San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo Wine Competition and a silver medal at the 2020 Houston Rodeo Uncorked! International Wine Competition.

At the Houston competition is was also awarded Reserve Class Champion and Reserve Texas Class Champion in the division for new world Italian white varieties & blends $28 & under.

Definitely a winner with this salmon dish.
