Refreshing Rieslings are at the top of the list when it comes to versatile food pairings. While Rieslings are known to be paired with rich and spicy foods, this summery recipe for Tuna Carpaccio is an elegant dish to serve alongside the lightly crisp wine.

This recipe is a divine interpretation of Chef Gavin Kaysen’s Spoon and Stable carpaccio, which is the ideal summer meal to pair with white wine. The recipe combines quail eggs, tuna steak and olive oil with a blend of lemon juice, green beans and black olive ingredients. The meal also features tomato and celery flavors that add an air of freshness to its rich palate. With a vast array of fresh veggies and healthy ingredients, a crisp Riesling presents an exceptional drink of choice.

This date-night meal can be served on the patio or enjoyed by candlelight. Its vast bouquet of fresh veggies compliments the crisp and fruity flavors of its wine paring and is a light choice for summer months.
