Quarantine Cooking and 2019 Making Waves Albarino

Naked Winery cooking during quarantine

When we bottled our 2019 Making Waves Albarino, there was no way we could have known how badly we would all need a good bottle of wine right now. We also never dreamed that we would only be able to wave to our loved ones through screens and at a distance for weeks on end. But since we are safe at home for the foreseeable future, that means we're all mostly cooking at home for the time being too. Maybe you're a Michelin stared home cook, who is loving the chance to make time consuming dishes. Or maybe you're just barely making it by on scrambled eggs, and eating out as much as your budget and local restaurant will allow. Either way, we've compiled a list of easy, delicious and comforting recipes that utilize the ingredients you've (hopefully) stocked up on. These recipes are tasty on their own and even better when paired with with our juicy new 2019 Making Waves Albarino. Vibrant fruit flavors of citrus and passion fruit make this springtime wine an instant favorite. It’s like an e-vite to the biggest party of the year, and your taste buds are RSVPing yes! So make a FaceTime dinner reservation with your loved ones and get cookin!

Indian Spiced Roasted Chickpeas -

This recipe should make enough soup to feed you now and later... so if you’re cooking for one, there’s no shame in freezing at least half. A little bit of spice is nice with a crisp and refreshing white wine like an Albarino.

Annie's Mac & Cheese Bacon Remix -
