On January 6th, most Latinos celebrate “Día De Los Magos Reyes”, the Epiphany, remembering the day when the Three Wise Men following the star to Bethlehem, arrived bearing their treasured gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh for the new born king!
Channeling my own Latino Mexican heritage, I celebrated the holiday with a few friends this past weekend and Gruet Brut, an American sparking wine, and pride of the state of New Mexico. The Gruet Winery was founded by French winemaker and grape grower Gibert Gruet who in the 1970’s moved to New Mexico and saw his vision and passion in this beautiful land of enchantment. In addition to producing outstanding sparking wine, Gruet makes some delicious still wines too!!
Gruet Brut paired with Hatch Valley green chile, pork posole!
Hatch Valley green chile pork posole is typically garnished with shredded purple cabbage, chopped radishes, oregano, cilantro and a touch of green onion.
