  • Bottle of Blanc de Noir on table with margaherita pizza

This summer we are pairing three seasonal pizzas with Domaine Carneros classic wines for the perfect evening of flavorful delight.

2018 Estate Brut with Fig, Caramelized Onion, & Goat Cheese Pizza
Fig, caramelized onion, and goat cheese pizza is packed full of flavor and delightfully delicious. This balance of sweet, earthy, savory, and tangy elements melds marveously with our Estate Brut Cuvée. The palate is round and full, revealing aromas of honeydew melon and crisp apple that complement the figs and caramelized onions on this pizza. Follow along with The Kitchen & Beyond's recipe and a glass of this signature Domaine Carneros bubbly with a toasty finish that lingers on, begging for another sip.

2018 Blanc de Noir with Margherita Pizza
Margherita pizza is best paired with a light styled wine whether you’re going to have a red, white, or rosé. Produced in limited quantities, our Blanc de Noir is a white sparkling wine made from “black” Pinot Noir grapes. The luscious aroma features poached pear and graham cracker while the palate has notes of warm honey and hint of toastiness. The wine's briskness stands up beautifully to the acidity in a classic red sauce and is the consummate counterbalance to a rich mozzarella found in a classic margherita pizza. We recommend this recipe by A Beautiful Plate.

2021 Avant-Garde with Mushroom, Brie, & Arugula Pizza
Mushroom pizza is best paired with an earthy red wine with soft tannins like our Pinot Noir. Extremely aromatic, our Avant-Garde packs a range of delicious fruit and savory flavors. Beginning with the nose one encounters fresh pomegranate and red raspberry, warm oak, and cinnamon. The supple tannin characteristics and silky mouth feel make it an excellent pairing with this earthy mushroom, buttery melted brie, and arugula pizza. Try out this delicious pairing adding truffle crème fraîche and in the recipe created by Christina’s Cucina.
