Opera Singer-welcome

Opera Singer in the Kitchen” is all about “Artistry in Food, Music and   Life,” and this creative blog recently featured a recipe using our Tarantas Tempranillo Crianza in a very fun and sugar-free Mini Berry and Red Wine Panna Cotta Jello with Orange Sauce.

From the Opera Singer in the Kitchen blog: “Have you seen Chopped on Food Network? It is one of my favorite shows to watch because there is the challenge of creating one of kind dishes using unique food items or a creative combination of foods. You should hear me yelling at the TV to the contestants what they should be creating. I love it! My kitchen creating looks like an episode of Chopped. I take the ingredients I have available in my fridge or pantry and I create. While I like following recipes, I hardly EVER follow them to a T. I always change them up or add to them because, well, this is how I function.

Mini-Berry-and-Red-Wine-Panna-Cotta-Jello-with-Orange-Sauce-and-contestTarantas Red Wine has sent out a challenge to all to create unique recipes using their wine and that pair well with their wines. The Tarantas brand name and label was inspired by the free-flowing, open art form of Flamenco song and dance of the same name, celebrated in Southeast Spain. “Pure wines capturing the essence of Spain in every glass,” Tarantas Wines are made with 100% certified organic grapes.”

“I was inspired to make a gelatin mold using berries, hibiscus tea, and wine and then created a simple Panna cotta as a second layer. I then added an orange sauce to the dessert that sealed the deal. A glass of Tarantas Tempranillo was used for the berry layer since the tasting notes include flavors of cranberries and blackberries with a crisp honeyed dried citrus finish.” Mini-Berry-and-Red-Wine-Panna-Cotta-Jello-with-Orange-Sauce

Snooth Reviews Tarantas Cava

Tarantas Cava - montage

A blend of Macabeu, Xarel-lo and Parellada are pulled together to create this Cava. It’s made in the classic method and spends more than 9 months sur lies. 100,000 bottles of this organic wine were produced. The nose is remarkably fresh with lemon zest, apple orchard aromas, and a wisp of sage. The palate shows of continued fresh fruit with orange peel, flaky biscuit and a host of spices. Marzipan, crème fraiche and continued citrus elements are all in play on the above average finish. It’s completely different than the prior wine in style, and taste, but equally delicious, and another killer value. Taste these first two side by side to get an inexpensive window into the diversity of Cava.
