Savory, spicy, and full of flavor, this recipe for braised sausage is the type of dinner you want to enjoy out on the deck on a beautiful night. Of course, with a glass of our 2019 Top of Land Pinot Noir by its side.
We decided on a "sweet & spicy" type of pairing here - the spiciness of the sausage is complemented by the juicy red fruit of our 2019 Top of Land Pinot Noir. Though the wine is dry, the brightness of the fruit shines against the savory, spicy sausage. Notes of spice in the Pinot also work well with the sausage and fennel.

And it’s an ideal partner for rich fish like salmon." - Food & Wine Magazine
