Main Dish Fare
Corned Beef and Cabbage – the classic St. Patrick’s Day dining. Pair it with our Merlot 3L Bag In Box from our Cottage Series. The medium-body of the wine lends itself to both the corned beef and cabbage.
Traditional Irish Shepard’s Pie – made the traditional way with beef, we suggest Forward Smooth.
Vegan Shepard’s Pie – this vegan version is just as hearty and Chardonnay VQA – 3L Bag In Box
Irish Beef Stew – if you’re finding yourself in a climate that still feels like winter this St. Patrick’s Day, stew is the perfect choice to warm your belly. Try Lighthouse Cabernet Franc VQA 3L Bag In Box. The dark fruit and tannins play off the flavours of the stew.
Potato and Pot Rib Roast – set it up in the morning in your crock pot before you head out for work and pour yourself a glass of Baco Noir 3L Bag In Box when you arrive back home and ta-da, your wine and dine is complete.
Potato Cakes with Smoked Salmon – a lovely, lighter option for your St. Patrick’s Day menu that is a perfect match for LOLA Cabernet Franc Rosé VQA. You’ll feel spring in the air enjoying this wine and dine combination.
Starters & Sides
Creamy Irish Mushroom and Potato Soup – Sometimes nothing works for dinner like a hearty and delicious soup. The earthy flavours meet their match with the light acidity and crisp citrus in the Cottage Series Pinot Grigio 3L Bag In Box.
Traditional Irish Colcannon – is a classic Irish side dish that works with red meat dishes and equally delicious with white meats. Simple baked or roasted chicken with herbs and Forward Crisp – Pinot Grigio Riesling makes for a great mid-week meal.
Irish Soda Bread – add Irish cream butter and really, it goes with everything!
St. Patrick’s Day Desserts
Cast Iron Irish Apple Cake – the unofficial dessert of Ireland paired with Forward Exotic – Moscato is a reason to eat dessert first.
Irish Scones – the fruity medium-body and spicy notes of Eco Select Cuvée VQA extend the fruit bursts of flavour from these scones.
Irish Hot Chocolate Bundt Cake – paired with Pelee Pink VQA 3L Bag In Box because chocolate and rosé go together.
St. Patrick’s Night In
If you’re spending the night in with one of the above pairings on your plate, cue up our staff’s movie and music playlist pick all in one!
The Commitments – movie. Jimmy Rabbitte, an unemployed Dublin boy, decides to put together a soul band made up entirely of the Irish working class.
The Commitments – Soundtrack – not traditional Irish music we know, but after watching the movie, you’ll need this on your regular playlist rotation.
