Our wine stewards suggest


For a bold pairing, try this Jura wine from an excellent producer. Notes of cooked apples along with grilled hints that will bring the beet sweetness up front.


Since beets and hibiscus makes such a good pair, this pale ale infused with hibiscus will be the ideal partner for this pie. The herbaceous notes of the beer will join those of the goat cheese and fresh herbs. The moderate bitterness of the beer will contrast with the slight acidity of the apples.
