White Bean Hummus, Roasted Tomatoes and Wild Garlic Bowl

For spring, the D.O. RUEDA region challenged me to create 3 recipes, to pair with their unique Verdejo wines (yes, the three wines are vegan!)


This region is renowned in Spain and worldwide as an area of expertise in white wines. Their designation, D.O. RUEDA, is one of the few European vineyard regions specialized in the protection and development of its native Verdejo grapes, which they have been growing for over 10 centuries.


Their outstanding natural resources combined with their savoir faire has earned them the reputation of producing Spain’s n°1 white-wine.


To pair beautifully with this fresh, citrussy, apricotty Verdejo from Rueda, I decided to go with a creamy, rich, melt-in-your-mouth kind of recipe: white bean hummus, roasted cherry tomatoes and wild garlic bowl.


A perfect complementary combo to the Rueda wine "The Maker” from Bodegas Pedro Escudero that will just work magic for any occasion:


- A Saturday night aperitif

- A boozy Sunday brunch

- An easy dinner with friends or family

- A Netflix-n-chill night with your better half
