For her part, Wilson stocks the Dodie’s racks with a concentrate on uncommon choices from little, family-owned vineyards and female-founded wineries, breweries, and cideries. Her unfussy method to suggestions and food pairings blends understanding with a dash of enjoyable and sass. Wilson’s objective is for visitors to leave her store with something they enjoy. “If you do not like it, come inform me!” she states.
“Holiday meals typically have a broad mix of tastes on the plate, so I look for something dry with light fruity notes that can be flexible, complementary and celebratory,” Wilson discusses. With turkey, she recommends bubbles, which can be served from start to end up, like the Jean Vesselle-Oeil de Perdrix brut from her store. For a still gewurztraminer, she advises Domaine Gondard-Perrin-Vir é-Cless é 2018, calling it a “effective white wine that compares to hearty packing and other abundant sides.”
And while red is the go-to white wine for meat, Wilson likes blending things up. For something unforeseen, she recommends a rosé and/or Brazilian brut with roast, brisket or tenderloin to stabilize the richness and match the heft of the taste, fat and texture of red meat.
“For desserts, preferably your pairing needs to be sweeter than the dessert, so I enjoy a great late bottle vintage port– the older the much better.” Wilson likewise pulls cider and beer out of her hat to wed with vacation deals with. “Cider is fermented apples, so it has an intrinsic sweet taste making a fantastic match. Texas Keeper Cider’s Golden Russet has light effervescence and intricacy, so it matches pies, cookies, and tarts,” statesWilson She makes and exception to her “sweeter pairing” required by advising darker beers and stouts with vacation pies. “Something about the crust and the filling works splendidly with velvety, abundant stouts and ambers.”
