There’s nothing like the flavors of fall to make you forget about summer. Whether you prefer rich pumpkin, spicy cinnamon or tangy apple; Segura Viudas Cava is the perfect pair to make your tastebuds pop with excitement. Cava, a Spanish sparkling wine, is not just for appetizers or desserts – it’s a versatile drink and the best compliment to some of fall’s favorite dishes. Grab some friends, pick a few pairings below and you’re on your way to building the perfect fall menu:
You can’t talk about fall flavors without talking about the season’s star: pumpkin. The round, toasty palate of sparkling wine stands up well to our orange friend’s signature richness.
Butternut Squash Soup
When the temperatures drop and it’s time to warm up, reach for a creamy soup. Cava’s effervescence is a refreshing contrast to the seasonal squash’s smooth, silky texture.
Finally, a purpose for your apple picking adventure – whip up an apple pie! The American classic’s tart and tangy zing strikes a zen-like balance with acidity of sparkling wine, resulting in a sweeter, fruity finish.
Spicy Sauces like Curry and Peanut
As winter approaches, we naturally crave hearty, comforting dishes. Cava is a perfect way to brighten up the spices and make your palate come alive.
Ham with a Pineapple Glaze
A holiday staple like ham is the perfect compliment to a sparkling glass of cava. The crisp acidity in the wine balances the saltiness of the ham. Bonus points: Cava also pairs wonderfully with tropical fruit such as pineapple.
Sweet Potato Casserole
The common holiday side is hard to pass up when it makes its seasonal appearance. Lift the creamy, carby goodness of sweet potatoes with a palate cleansing Cava. The fading bubbles mean you’re ready for the next bite.
Blue Cheese and Pears
Pears, both sweet and tangy, are best in the fall. Try adding salty, indulgent blue cheese and drizzling with honey. Balance that sweet, tangy, salty nosh with a perfect glass of Cava.
