Weekly Wine Pairing - Vino PG & Shrimp Monaco


Spring in Phoenix makes for absolutely perfect patio weather. Sunshine and a cool breeze can only be made better by enjoying a great wine and menu pairing at the Red, White, & Brew! This considered, we are recommending the light, crisp Pinot Grigio from Vino by Charles Smith, paired with our signature shrimp pasta we call Shrimp Monaco. 

Based out of Washington state, Vino by Charles Smith is an Italian inspired, American made 100% Pinot Grigio first produced in 2010. Hand produced in the traditional Italian style, with Washington terroir present in every stage of the drinking experience makes for a unique flavor. Aromas of fresh cut hay, orange blossom, tangerine and honeysuckle lend themselves to providing a long, satisfying finish which pairs wonderfully with light pastas and seafood.

The Shrimp Monaco consists of shrimp sautéed with fresh mushrooms in a lemon wine sauce, served on a bed of garlic seasoned leaf spinach and crowned with a layer of mozzarella. All of this is generally served over a healthy portion of mashed potatoes, or spread over our linguini.  A side Caeser or Garden salad and our famous garlic rolls are included with this dish, making it a meal fit for royalty. 

Please check back later in the week for our next Beer & Menu pairing, which will feature a darker brew and one of our more robust menu items.
