Another Viognier Meal

Remember the Becker Vineyards Viognier I waxed poetic about for an entire entry? Well, when we were in Austin for my half-brother's wedding at the beginning of December, Joe and I realized that, because my dad was driving back, we could buy a whole case of Viognier. So we did, on one condition specified by me: we have to treat drinking it like a special occasion.

After Christmas dinner, I made chicken stock from the carcass of our roast chicken, and since I had never made risotto using homemade chicken stock, I knew that's what some of it would be used for. Alongside spicy Italian chicken sausage from Trader Joe's and sauteed spinach, the wine completed a wonderful meal. Joe is responsible for the artistic presentation.

I love Viognier for it's light and subtly sweet taste! Great presentation too!

I LOVE Viognier! (I may have said that in the other post too, lol). This looks like a nice meal to go with it!
