Slurping allowed, Easter Wine Suggestions


What to serve with Easter Dinner?  Katherine Cole of the Oregonian suggests starting with Winter’s Hill Dry Rosé of Pinot Noir.

“While there’s a hint of candied cherries and raspberries on the nose, the zesty palate has a satisfying saline quality that makes you just want to slurp this stuff down.”

Read the full review here, along with other suggestions for your Easter table.


2012 Pinot Gris paired with Ceviche


2012 Winter’s Hill Pinot Gris is crisp and clean on the palate with aromas of apple and tropical fruits that linger for a long finish. This wine is perfectly suited for an afternoon on the patio with Tilapia Ceviche. We hope you’ll enjoy!

Ceviche is a classic Latin American dish that is easy to make and is sure to please. 

  • 1 pound Tilapia
  • 1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. lime zest
  • 1 medium jalapeno cored, seeded and diced
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced very thinly into half-moons
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro
  1. Cut the fish into small pieces: You can dice it or leave it in pieces up to 1/2 inch square, but remember that the larger the pieces the longer it will take to “cook.”.
  2. Salt the fish, then cover with the citrus juice in a non-reactive (glass preferably) container with a lid. Add the sliced onions, jalapenos, lime zest and sugar.
  3. Chill in the fridge for about 4 hours. Fish should be white when you take it out. Some suggest leaving dish in fridge for up to 24 hours. It is up to you.
  4. When you take it out of the fridge add the cilantro and stir
  5. To serve: place ceviche in a glass bowl and scoop using a plastic serving spoon. Do not use a metal spoon because the acid will react with the metal.
  6. Serve with tortilla chips, or tostadas.

Note: If you don’t want to use raw Tilapia then you can quickly cook the fish in the oven or in a pan.
