Coachella Wine Fest Yields a Surprise Pairing

On a beautiful sunny desert Sunday...
at the Coachella Wine Festival....
I learned that nachos aren't just for beer anymore.
These 'wine' nachos, courtesy of the culinary minds at Indian Wells Country Club, are perfect when paired with the fruity and perfumy Grenache from Temecula's Leonesse Cellars.
Chef Rudy gave me the low down on the ingredients:
The Grand Tasting was a adventurous discovery of new wines and eclectic food finds, like blu Ember Restaurant's booze-fired strawberries with dark chocolate shavings, pistaschio, mint, and balsamic vinegar.
There was also an element of romance, as the brain behind Kristian Story Wines showcased his latest Bordeaux blend.
 The duo also pairs with rock musicians to create a series of blends called Artist Wine.
