BIG WINE FROM LITTLE WALLA WALLA

Introducing Our Two New Partnership Wines

BY: TATUM SNODGRASS | NOVEMBER 7, 2017


When Mary Melton and Andrew Browne met for dinner last September, it was supposed to be a casual meet and greet between two industry leaders, but after the first bottle of chardonnay, they were instant friends.



Andrew shared his vision for Browne Family Vineyards; he talked about how great his team in Seattle was and how he managed to cultivate some of the best winemakers he’s ever known. With equal passion, Mary shared the unique challenge of curating a wine list that lets P.F. Chang’s Asian flavors be the star.

Second bottle in and it was decided. Mary and Andrew would make a wine together. Not that the wines on the P.F. Chang’s wine list didn’t already pair well with the food – Mary has been doing this for decades after all – but this new partnership wine would go with everything, from sushi to salads and dim sum to dessert.

TWO NEW PARTNERSHIP WINES

Today, we’re excited to introduce two new wines beautifully blended for the unique characteristics of the P.F. Chang’s menu.

We affectionately named the wine “&” to symbolize the friendship between P.F. Chang’s and Browne Family Vineyards. It also represents the pairing of Asian food & wine, and the act of blending wine with a little of this & a little of that.

Both wines are soft and on the richer side. Enjoy a glass on its own or with anything on the P.F. Chang’s menu.


WHITE BLEND
Slightly sweet (off dry)
fruity, shines bright,
can be enjoyed with
or without food

 

RED BLEND
Bold (with oomph),
structured red with
juicy dense fruit, slight
spice, plush tannins


WHY WALLA WALLA?

Columbia Valley is where the grapes for these wines were grown. Near the small town of Walla Walla and east of the Cascade Mountains – it’s dry and sunny, unlike rainy Seattle. Strong winds from the Cascades keep the vines dry so the grapes form thick fruit skins, which creates grapes with high concentration, vibrant color, and robust flavor.

RAISE A GLASS

This is not just another private label wine. Consider this is a celebration in a bottle. P.F. Chang’s was the first in the industry to serve upscale wine with Chinese food. Still nearly 25 years later, we believe there’s never been a better time to honor the great meals we share and the wines that go with them. So, we raise a glass to new friends, delicious food, and more wine on our tables!
