Looking for wine pairings with Tra Vigne’s Mozzarella Cheese “Al Minuto”? Tra Vigne’s award-winning wine list offers 520 different selections primarily from California and Italy. With such a wide selection of both well-known and new vintages, we are happy to offer suggestions and pairings to accompany any dish at our restaurant.
Chef Nash Cognetti’s Mozzarella Cheese “Al Minuto” is one of Tra Vigne’s most beloved appetizers. Hand made at the moment it is ordered and served with grilled brushetta and Napa Valley olive oil, it is fresh and full of flavor. Many patrons enjoy pairing a chardonnay with the dish and wine director, Jay Smith, agrees this is a perfect combination. He said, “Chardonnays have enough weight to carry the rich flavors of the mozzarella without overpowering it.”
Jay suggested Chateau Boswell, “The Voyage” (Russian River, 2009) to pair with the mozzarella. He also recommended Librandi, ’Citrone’, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc blend, Calabri (Italy, 2012) which has no oak and compliments the dish very well. Both wines are available by the glass.
