ALDI sent me a Wine Tasting Kit which features six Award-Winning Wines with pairing instructions.

Using the kit, I was able to go to ALDI and find all the wines they suggested plus everything I need to make coordinating recipes. Below are the ingredients for the Caprese Shrimp Fonduta.

This recipe, adapted from an ALDI test kitchen recipe, was suggested by official ALDI Sommelier Leslee Miller specifically to go with their 2015 Chairé Blanc De Blancs which was named a Beverage Tasting Institute World Wine Champion.

A fine pairing indeed!

This Sparkling Wine is perfect for cutting through the richness of all the cheese in the Fonduta (and I added even MORE cheese than the original recipe called for because, well, more is more when it comes to cheese). Serve with Toasted Baguette slices or Clancy’s Original Tortilla Chips.
