Classic wine pairing

The fruity aromas of Bordeaux Clairet pair up harmoniously with the tomatoes and strawberries; while the tartness of this refreshing wine will carry the vivacity of the vinegar and traditional wholegrain mustard.

Original wine pairing

If you're more of a white wine drinker... go for a dry white like Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux with vivacity that will enhance the quinoa and mint pairing.

20 mint leaves
1 shallot
10 cherry tomatoes
10 strawberries
70g of feta
3 handfuls of lamb's lettuce
Homemade vinaigrette (olive oil, vinegar, traditional wholegrain mustard)
