Paella with Tavel - Spain meets France




Yours truly was hosting a barbecue for Memorial Day at Domaine du Chevsky last night. Meats were marinading, wines chilling.

Before the meat hit the grill, Scott's prawn paella with chorizo sausage filled the perfect spot of the hungry crowd of gourmets! Accompanied by a lovely bottle of Tavel. Rosé! Yes, gents, you can get off your high horses and stop poopooing the pink.



Tavel, of course, is the only appellation in the world dedicated solely to Rosé wine.

Jon Troutman, the chief editor, oversees all corkd posts, whereas this site - Iron Chevsky wine blog - is all about lifestyle with (food &) wine. It is my unfiltered personal expression aiming at perhaps a more advanced wino. I will attempt to write for both publications! And with that, here is the rest of the article...
