pineapple fruit bars

The Perfect Summer Snack

Pineapple fruit bars and the 2008 Okanogan Estate Vineyards Gewurztraminer...perfect for a hot summer day!  The tropical fruit flavors in the wine work beautifully against the pineapple flavor of the fruit bar.  The wine is also off-dry (slightly sweet), allowing it to work with the sweetness of the dessert.  Remember, when pairing anything sweet with wine, the wine must be as sweet or sweeter than the dessert.  Finally, I love how the chill from the wine mirrors the frozen aspect of the bar.  It's a delicious pairing that might just become your favorite summer-time wine & food snack!
