Arugula & White Bean Salad

Sometimes we just need a simple and healthy salad, and this one is quick and easy to put together. Use it as a main course, or as a side. It pairs nicely with the Sparkling Wine. Our Rosé is also delicious with it.

Recommended Wine Pairing

Sparkling Wine

A traditional sparkling wine created from a blend of Pinot noir and Pinot blanc. Gentle pressing and barrel fermentation create a delicious base for our wine. Secondary fermentation in the bottle creates both the bubbles and the complex flavor and character of fine sparkling wine. Finally, extended aging in the bottle allows the wine to interact with the fermentation lees to create fine, delicate bubbles that linger in your glass and explode on your palate.
