Food Pairing Notes
Full bodied wine doesn't always require red meat. The buttery/salty/sour/crunchy combo of a great grilled cheese sandwich will rise to the occasion.
The foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains embrace about 200 small wineries and more than 6000 acres of vines. Ursa is near Placerville, California.
