If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter (if not, you really should 😉 ), you know that recently I had the pleasure of joining some of my fellow bloggers at a wonderful wine tasting hosted by the fabulous VIanney from Sweet Life. When she extended the invite I was like a giddy little girl because I was excited to spend some time breaking bread and catching up with this fabulous recipe developer. When she said that the added bonus was that we would also get to sample some Casillero del Diablo Wine, I said yes please. 😉
Acenar, in San Antonio, TX, served as the wonderful backdrop to our food and wine adventure. As soon as I arrived, I was greeted by our super friendly and knowledgeable waiter Fernando. He not only took great care of all our needs, but because Acenar always has Castillero del Diablo Wines on the menu, he was able to offer us food pairings to go with each of our samplings.
Our first pairings of copitas de picadillo (lettuce cups), alambres (mini skeweres), quesadillas & flautas came accompanied with Casillero del Diablo Malbec and Casillero del Diablo Sauvignon Blanc. The table was split on what the running favorite was, so we called it a draw on these wine options.
Then came the main course. We all ordered a variety of options, so for those of us who had red meat, we were told to try our meal with the Casillero del Diablo Cabernet Sauvignon. Those of us who ordered fish or chicken, were encouraged to pair their meal with the Casillero del Diablo Chardonnay.
Again, the table was split, but for me, the true winner of the night was the Casillero del Diablo Cabernet Sauvignon. It was so smooth and went wonderfully with my meal, it was hard to try another sip of anything else after that.
As in everything, some people are white wine drinkers, while others prefer a good red wine, which is why our table was split on our opinions. Personally, I’m just a good wine drinker, so I tend to pair my meals at home with great tasting wine. The Casillero del Diablo Cabernet Sauvignon has definitely been added to my must have wine list. Check it out, along with their other wine options to find which you need to add to your at home or out and about wine list. 😉
Have you tried the Casillero del Diablo wines? Which was your fav?
