Epicurious, a digital food brand, has announced a new collection of custom designed wines.
"For twenty years, we've been the place where real home cooks go to be inspired. So, we made a wine to inspire you. A wine for people who cook, love great ingredients, and want to make sure their wine works just as well in their wine glass as it does in their pan sauce," says Eric Gillin, Executive Director of Epicurious. "It's the first wine designed to go kitchen to table.”
According to a release, Epicurious is known for connecting a community of home cooks together around a virtual table to share their passion for food. As part of the wine creation process, Epicurious Senior Editor Matt Duckor and Food Director Rhoda Boone voyaged to Sonoma, California to assist in blending these two new premium wines with award-winning winemaker Linda Trotta of AW Direct. In conjunction with the wine's development and release, Epicurious will create unique recipes featuring these new wines, food and wine pairings, and more.
"Epicurious attracts passionate home cooks with great recipes and fun cooking videos. The goal of this project was to create a collection of wines that complement the Epicurious recipes, creating a natural partnership between food and wine," says Howard Jackowitz, Founder at Wines That Rock. "We are thrilled to collaborate with Epicurious as it has allowed us to tap into the passion of both foodies and wine lovers.”
The Epicurious Cabernet Sauvignon is red blend with fruit flavors of plum, cassis and spice. Along with the Cabernet Sauvignon comes the premium Chardonnay, which is a delicate, yet rich white blend with a fruit filled finish.
