Foodie Friday – Indonesian Chicken & Villa Wolf Gewürztraminer

It’s Foodie Friday! Try this recipe for Indonesian chicken and green beans, submitted by Todd Hudson of the Maverick Institute.

We paired this recipe with our Villa Wolf Gewürztraminer and the combo was a huge hit. The Villa Wolf Gewürztraminer is clean, fruity and wonderfully light on its feet. It shows off the aromatic charm of the variety without being heavy or ponderous. It has a deliciously juicy texture and a delightfully delicate aroma of spice and fresh roses. It’s very refreshing to drink on its own and makes a perfect accompaniment to spicy Asian cuisine.
