Chickpea pear creamy soup and a Spanish Wine

Written by Veronica Lavenia

Chickpeas, pears and a sprinkling of paprika are the key ingredients of one of the most comforting winter dishes. A velvety soup, with an elegant taste and rich in nutrition.

The suggested pairing is Brezo Tinto 2021 from the Mengoba winery. “The sip is enveloping and structured. The tannic texture is important, but well smoothed. Good taste-olfactory persistence with an aftertaste of ripe fruit and medicinal herbs”. For the full interview click here.
