Smoked Chicken Pasta Salad

First choice for a wine to go with this might be hard to find. Ribiero& Ferrira Vinho TintoRead More Garrafiera from Portugal. The reason is that I would like the match of the smoked chicken and black olives and Feta cheese the the medium tannins and beautiful fruit of this wine. Odds are though that it is not in Atlanta. Another Portuguese wine that would go nicely is Caves Velhas Romeria, another red wine with just the texture and body for the smoke and olives and cheese. There is a real fine red wine from Fattoria Vitticcio that used to be here in Atlanta and probably still is. Their regular Chianti Classico would do just fine. It has just enough oak to work into the smoke and cheese and olives. They have a Chianti Classico Riserva that is outstanding. (aged, at least partially in American Oak. If someone made this dish and used a different cheese, say a domestic parmesan, then there are other chiantis that would work well. If there was a little bacon in the dish then perhaps a Fontannafredda Barbaresco. (Hey!! I am not making these names up OK!!! )

The 2 wines I am going to mention used to be quite popular and available in most retail wine shops.Read More First choice is Muscadet Sevre et Maine. Here is a link to it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muscadet The Second wine choice is from Portugal, Vinho Verde which just means green wine. If you can find some try it anyway.

"I think the Church needs to do a better job of telling its stories- not so they will receiveRead More praise but to point others to the One who gave his life in exchange for many." I wholeheartedly agree!
