How do you pair a wine with a house? Let’s find out!
Today I am at our listing at 7581 Chester Drive in Prunedale, a 3 bedroom home I am very excited to show you, pairing it with a wine I’m just as excited to share, the Stolpman Vineyards Trousseau “Combe” from Ballard Canyon near Santa Ynez.
What makes this such a great pairing? A combe, the wine’s namesake, is a small sheltered valley vineyard. You get the same vibe of a sheltered space in this beautiful private home. The home has an open floor concept but manages to maintain a sense of privacy from room to room, the perfect place to entertain with a wine like this. There’s a great savory element of dried herbs to this wine that pairs so well with this area and the eucalyptus essence that breezes through the property.
This wine is refreshing, quaffable, and a relaxing sipper perfect for enjoying a nice evening overlooking the expansive canyon views from this living room. It’s also a great wine to enjoy with BBQ and loved ones in the cozy backyard.
This wine is light-bodied with high acidity and low tannins. It’s a beautiful garnet color with aromas of red fruits and fresh herbs. On the palate, you’ll get flavors of cranberry, pomegranate, and a touch of white pepper. The acidity makes it a great food-pairing wine, and the light body means it won’t overwhelm delicate dishes.
So what should you serve with this wine? I think it would be great with roasted chicken or pork, grilled veggies, or even a simple pasta with tomato sauce. It’s versatile and easy to drink, making it the perfect wine for a casual gathering with friends.
7581 Chester is the perfect home for gatherings like this. With plenty of space both inside and out, it’s perfect for hosting a party or just enjoying a quiet evening at home. There’s gorgeous views from all angles of the property and it’s nestled up in the hills of Prunedale, with lots of sunshine.
Fun, relaxing, and enjoyable for all palates, this home (and this wine) is a true gem in a wonderful family neighborhood and the epitome of living a private, peaceful country lifestyle. Cheers!
