Rose is one of those wines that makes it official, summer is here! Lori of Fake Food Free agrees, and recently shared a delicious recipe on her blog for a yummy Smoky Chipotle Shrimp Dip with Shrimp Cucumber Salad. To see the entire post please visit Fake Food Free, however we’re sharing a sneak peak below to wet your appetite. Don’t forget to check your wine cellar in case you’ve already finished your Rose. We have a bit more Napa Valley Rose, but hurry and stock up soon as this summer wine always sells out quickly!!

See a sneak peak from Lori below and remember to visit Fake Food Free for the entire recipe and post.

Shrimp salad and Cultivar Rosé

“Shrimp is a summer food to me. I rarely have it in the kitchen until hot days begin to bring about thoughts of the beach and ocean.  My shrimp recipes are pretty standard — tossed with pasta, stirred into sweet corn risotto or wrapped into Asian-inspired spring rolls. When I found a bag of sustainably harvested small shrimp (often called salad shrimp) at the market last week, though, I was too excited to use it in one of my regular recipes.  I’d been having trouble finding shrimp from a good source so when that find lined up with my shrimp season, I needed to celebrate a little!”
