The Master’s saw a new winner this year, which just goes to show that each PGA tournament is a nail-baiter. Instead of ruining your manicure, pour a glass of Meiomi Coastal California wine, the official wine of the PGA (the Professional Golfers Association), and enjoy the game.
Whether looking for a pinot noir as bold as the approach shots to the green, or a crowd-pleasing rosé for the crisp spring weather, Meiomi’s Flavor Forward portfolio suits any tournament viewing occasion.
Meiomi wines balance the best grapes from Sonoma, Monterey and Santa Barbara counties in California. The cool-climate groups yield wines with character and harmony — ripe and rich, with expressive depth and taste.
The winery, which opened in 2006, offers five varieties: rosé, sparkling, Chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon and pinot noir. Various prices.
Here is a dish that pairs perfectly with Meiomi’s cabernet sauvignon. For those looking for cheese pairings, try a triple cream brie, pimento cheese, a pungent blue cheese or an aged cheddar.
