Although sitting back and enjoying a glass of wine is a wonderful way to relax or spend time connecting with friends, there is a bit of joy in being intentional when choosing a wine that complements the flavors of a meal. Uncorked Kitchen & Wine Bar thoughtfully pairs unique, gourmet wines with seasonal small plates. Summer reds often tend to be lighter and less oaky. The following examples include an Angelo Negro Brochette, a chilled red. Perfect for a summer evening unwinding and enjoying our beautiful Colorado views.

  • Brisket Burger - House Made Pickles, Caramelized Onion, Gruyere, Arugula, Mustard Aioli, Rosemary Parmesan Fries
  • Caramelized Onion Flatbread with Sautéed Mushrooms, Arugula, Toasted Pine Nuts
  • Sautéed Prawns, Head/Shell on Prawns, Romesco Sauce, Grilled Lemon
  • Angelo Negro Brochette, suggested pairing Caramelized Onion Flatbread - chilled red, light wine doesn’t compete with flavor of vegetables
  • Guimaro, suggested pairing Sautéed Prawns - a lighter wine that is a little more acidic, pairs well with the sweetness of prawns
  • Nita, suggested pairing Brisket Burger - full bodied blend, stands up well to the richness of red meat
