Nordic toast with La Fleur de Mondésir white wine from the Southwest

With the return of the warmth of the sun, picnics also mean cold food!
Easy and delicious, Nordic toast is the perfect dish for a successful spring picnic, and here’s our recipe for delicious toast: in a bowl, combine dill, capers, finely chopped pickles and cream cheese. Season with pepper and mix well.
Spread your mixture on toast and add slices of smoked salmon on top! You can also add avocado or salmon roe as a topping.

With these toasts, we recommend Fleur de Mondésir Blanc. This dry white wine, fruity and floral, with notes of citrus and white flowers, goes perfectly with light and fresh dishes such as salads, seafood or vegetarian dishes.
It will enhance the taste of salmon and spices on your Nordic toasts!

A sweet and sour salad with Fleur de Mondésir rosé wine

With the arrival of spring, rosé wine is making a comeback, to our great delight!

Fleur de Mondésir Rosé Univitis is a dry, fruity and refreshing rosé wine.
This rosé wine from the South-West offers floral and fruity notes of strawberries and raspberries. Its texture is light and refreshing, making it a perfect choice for a sunny day at the picnic!
To accompany this wine, a salad with a mix of sweet and savory flavors would be perfect!
We recommend choosing ingredients that highlight the fruity and floral flavors of the wine, such as fresh strawberries, toasted pecans, and chunks of mild goat cheese.

For a touch of protein, you can also add slices of grilled chicken or grilled shrimp. The salad can be dressed with a light vinaigrette made with red wine vinegar, olive oil and Dijon mustard.

Serve between 7° and 11°C.
