Locus Wines Recipes
Welcome to the treasure trove of goodness. As you know, we are all about food and wine. This is the page, I, Ton, shall reveal all my secrets and lies. Or maybe I will just stick to recipes.
As we do more pairings exploring, the list of recipes will grow so bookmark this page and check back often.

Our rosé is acidic and refreshing, with a lot of floral notes on the nose, but citrusy flavors with nary a sweet tone in the mid palate and finish. It finishes very clean too. It is best paired with similar dishes - acidic, refreshing, not super-heavy flavors. You can do a ceviche, with shellfish or white fish or even veggies (I used kohlrabi for a vegan ceviche for a dinner).
Modo White or Sauvignon Blanc
Something refreshing, somewhat sweet (not too sweet), also with a bite (sharp, sour flavor) to match the acidity, salinity of the wine.
Sud - the Grenache Blend Extraordinnaire
Tomatoes, tomatoes and tomatoes. The redder the better.
Dark, heavy flavors. Best and easiest pairinig: Stilton (U.K. blue cheese, for you 'ignerts') or dark chocolate (avoid milk chocolate with Syrah. It will clash hardcore).
Syrah-heavy blends in the style of Northern Rhone Valley means you cannot go wrong with mushrooms.
