Andy’s Wine Pairings
Add a bottle (or two) of handpicked wines from our wine director to your Bird Box meal.
Syrah, Brutto Nobile, Buona Notte, 2018, Milton-Freewater, Columbia Gorge, OR
Graham Markel is a rising star in the Oregon wine scene. While working as the assistant winemaker at Hiyu for a number of years, he has had the opportunity to work with fruit from the best vineyards in the Columbia Valley. This Syrah comes from “the Rocks” district of Milton-Freewater AVA on the Oregon side of the Gorge, pretty far east. This area gets its name from the baseball sized sedimentary rocks that go 100 feet down before bedrock. Graham uses a light touch in the cellar and picks the grapes when they are perfectly ripe and alcohol levels are still in balance. This contrasts many other wines from this area that can be high in alcohol and smell excessively of new oak. This bottling has classic Syrah notes of lavender, pepper, and smoky black fruits.
Pinot Blanc, Freedom Hill Vineyard, St Innocent, 2016, Coast Range, Willamette, OR
Mark Vlosack of St. Innocent has been making wine from the Freedom Hill Vineyard for decades – truly a Willamette Valley vineyard gem. Most famous for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir there is a small amount of Pinot Blanc planted there. Mark’s expression if it truly highlights this under appreciated variety. Vibrant and juicy with ripe orchard fruit citrus, and some real texture, even creaminess, but the wine continues with a mineral-laced sense of place and cool acidity to balance.
All of the meals will include 3-courses, a fancy salad for assembling at home, a protein with sides packed ready for re-heating, and dessert. Each box is designed to be heated at home and will generously feed two humans.
Dishes will vary each week.
All boxes are nut free, but we are unable to accommodate any further dietary restrictions or modifications at this time.
Le Pigeon will be following strict safety procedures, and will offer curbside pickup or will bring the meal to your car.
