Garlic Shield

If there’s a lesson to be learned from Provence in matching wine and food, it’s the amazing ability of snappy rosés to make just about any Mediterranean dish taste even better. In particular, Provençal rosés are delicious with the region’s seafood dishes which are usually generously spiked with garlic. The supreme example is bouillabaisse, the garlic-laced Provençal fish stew. Alas, garlic can distort the flavor of many wines. Not so with rosés. Boldly fruity and substantial in body, they are tailor-made for anything garlicky. Rosés are just starting to flood onto the market right now…why not buy a case of assorted ones?
