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!

  • My Texas wine post this evening for tonight’s #TXwine Twitter Tuesday... was Llano 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon. Great juice, lots of black cherry, cassis, cedar, good tannins and great acidity. Paired with BBQ spare ribs. Enjoyed takeout order of Pizzitola’s real pit barbecue pork spareribs, potato salad and coleslaw. Pizzitola’s is Houston’s only “open brick pits” still in operation located near Houston Heights.

  • Today Memorial Day, AND coincidentally National Wine Day in the USA 🇺🇸. How fitting that this past weekend, I helped taste 74 American made wines at writer Jeff Kralik’s “4th Annual World’s Largest Blind Tasting of American made Rosé” Tasting 74 wines is serious business and it was an honor to taste along side these great writers Katrina Rene and Sandra Crittenden. Brought home six Rosé souvenirs to enjoy today Memorial Day.
