Whether following the worlds longest play-date, a day on the at the office or mixing it up with great friends, there are few things more rewarding than capping a great outing with a cheeseburger and a favorite beverage. In the spirit of that tradition, Kudos has some suggestions for how to bask in that glorious celebration:
Where’s the beef?
Kudos Reserve Pinot Noir has plenty of body and flavor intensity to match up with your favorite grass-fed beef patty. As for the Willamette Valley Chardonnay, we recommend going with something a little less traditional like grilled chicken or a salmon patty. There’s no wrong answer here.
More cheese, please!
The dynamic Willamette Valley Pinot Noir pairs well with a grip of cheeses, but we like keeping it local, so we smother our burgers with Tillamook Medium Cheddar or Tumalo Farms Classico. These medium-hard cheeses play well with the medium body and slightly earthy character of our Pinot Noir.
For the Willamette Valley Pinot Gris, a grilled chicken patty topped with Tillamook Swiss or Portland Creamery’s Oregon Chevre will do the trick. If you decide to go with a salmon burger, Briar Rose Creamery’s Goat Milk Feta is the move. These softer cheeses pair nicely with Pinot Gris’ citrus notes and intense fruity character.
The grass is always greener.
If you prefer to skip the fries, Kudos Pinot Gris is a masterful complement to virtually any salad.
Remember, you’ve earned the right to feast and Kudos elevates that experience.
