In Greek Mythology, the Muses were considered to be the inspiration and personification of the arts, particularly literature, music, and dance. At Long Shadows Vintners, the Muses take form in our white wine offerings that we, too, draw inspiration from. Introducing the 2019 Poet’s Leap, 2019 Dance, and 2020 Cymbal—just in time to sip on all summer long. We’ve also created a wine club devoted to these enchanting creations to ensure you receive as many bottles of these limited-production wines as you desire. Without further ado, we give you the Three Muses of Summer along with a suggested food pairing.

Try pairing Chettinad Chicken Curry from Chili’s South Indian Cuisine, Seattle. Why it works: Spicy South Indian food? Dry-style riesling all the way! The 2019 Poet’s Leap Riesling has complex floral and tropical fruit flavors. The wine’s laser-sharp acidity and just enough residual sugar is an excellent match for flaming hot South Indian chicken curry, providing much-needed relief in between bites. The Matar Paneer (cottage cheese with peas) is a great option for vegetarians or for those who like their food mildly spiced. You can segue seamlessly into dessert territory with this vino – we highly recommend their Gulab Jamun.

Sangiovese, a quintessentially Italian grape, evokes so many more images than just Chianti, the delicious cherry-hued Tuscan wine for which it is best known. One could even say that it is symbolic of the good Italian life. Think Sangiovese, and rows of manicured cypress trees, undulating hills, and Renaissance architecture come unbidden to mind.
Native to areas along Germany’s Rhine River, Riesling is an aromatic white wine that bursts forth with notes of orchard fruit and flower blossoms. Essentially spring in a bottle, this wine is meant to be savored and celebrated. Today, we intend to do just that!
