Recipe Notes

Wine Recommendation — Tassel Ridge Iowa Marquette Rosé, or if you prefer a sweeter wine, Tassel Ridge American Pink Catawba

We have a choice of wine for you with this flatbread recipe which is great for tailgates. Iowa Marquette Rosé is a dry, full-bodied rosé with bright cherry, strawberry, citrus, and peach on the nose and strawberry, raspberry, and cherry on the palate. If you’d like a sweeter wine, American Pink Catawba will fill the bill. Made entirely from Catawba grapes, American Pink Catawba is a refreshing, semi-sweet, fruity rosé with pineapple and other tropical fruit aromas and green apple and citrus flavors on the palate.
