Pasqua Wines 11 Minutes Rosé

Today Saturday June 8, 2019 is National Rosé Day, and my friends and I are celebrating! I received this lovely wine sample about a month ago from Pasqua Wines 11 Minutes Rosé, and I just knew we had to save it for today!!  Plus, I prepared an easy satisfying Rosé paired lunch of chicken thighs and roasted veggies. The goal, to have everything prepped and in the oven in a total of 11 minutes, and it was close.

You will need:

  • 4 Chicken thighs
  • 4 Ears of Corn (keep corn inside their husks)
  • Fresh Brussels Sprouts
  • 1 white onion
  • 1 small package of organic parsnips & carrots
  • Avocado oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Dried parsley
  • 1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 4 tsp. honey

Preheat oven to 350 degrees 

Prepare the rinsed veggies on baking sheet. I quartered the onion, sliced the Brussels Spouts in half, kept the husks on the corn, and halved the parsnips. Sprinkled parsley, salt, pepper, avocado oil and apple cider vinegar on the veggies.

Then on a second baking sheet place the 4 chicken thighs season with parsley, salt, pepper, avocado oil and apple cider vinegar. Then top each chicken thigh with 1 tsp. of honey and massage all the seasonings together. You will notice in the picture below the chicken thighs browned quite nicely. Honey is the secret ingredient, and it adds such a unique flavor to your roasted chicken thighs.

Once the oven is ready at 350 degrees, place the chicken on the top rack, and veggies on the bottom rack. In approximately thirty minutes you can remove the veggies and cover them with foil until the chicken is done. The chicken will need additional 25 to 30 minutes to cook properly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

11 Minutes Rosé a blend of grape varietals Corvina, Trebbiano di Lugana, Syrah and Carmenère. The name “11 Minutes” refers to the duration of the skin contact, the pressing of the grapes and length of time to extract its rosy color.

 

We discovered a small secret inside the bottle! You can only see the image when the bottle is almost empty. There is a small picture hidden behind the middle portion of the bottle. It is a photo of a lady holding a little bird or perhaps she holding a big butterfly?!?

Cheers, and a very happy National Rosé Day!

  • As Summer continues at a sweltering heated pace in H-Town; sometimes just coming home at lunchtime to enjoy a simple salad is a cool refreshing blessing. I have always been a big fan of all the @briannas_salad dressings, and this time tried their Poppyseed Organic. I found at Costco last week. Oh it’s true, the poppyseed is delightful on peaches 🍑 #briannassaladdressing #peaches #peachesandpoppyseeds #costco #poppyseedsaladdressing #saladdressing  #saladdressings #houstonheights #htown
  • From Villa Sandi tasting class last evening at Vinology Houston with Flavio Gerreto and Jeremy Parzen learned about their UNESCO recognized Prosecco wine areas! Villa Sandi’s remarkable Prosecco Rosé...Rosato! The Villa Sandi sun, water and the quality of their land. Did you know the capital of Prosecco is Valdobbiadene?!? Yes, this Prosecco Superiore is delicious some pineapple, mango and creamy and quite perfect to pair with Asian food. AND, as Flavio mentioned, and which I totally agree with; “It is the style of the wine that is the winner” Thank you!!@dobianchi @flaviogeretto @villasandi for an enlightening class of refreshing and excellent Prosecco... #prosecco #proseccoparty #villasandi #villasandiprosecco #unescowineyards #unescowine #unescoprosecco
