Seared Scallops with Orange Scented Radicchio, Fennel & Snap Pea Slaw

“Finding great scallops is like finding great wine. They are both so irresistible and exciting to me that I immediately look for friends I can share them with. This dish is perfect for brunch, lunch, or dinner, especially in the Spring when scallops are at their best.” – Joseph Carr, Founder, Josh Cellars

Wine Pairing


This wine is light and easy-to-drink with flavors of white peach and strawberry and hints of nectarine.

We love pairing this vibrant Rosé with grilled fish, summer salads, and chilled seafood.
