25 Oct Pairing Pinot Noir with Fig & Pistachio Toasts

Pinot Noir is one of my favorites wines, it’s easy to drink and pairs nicely with a lot of my favorite foods! Recently, the team at Peter Yealands reached out and asked me for a pairing recommendation for their Pinot Noir. 

I’m an avid entertainer so I immediately wanted to create something that would be great to make for a party or entertaining a group of friends. This wine is light and fruity with subtle berry notes. It’s quite smooth with a soft tannin finish and I think this would be a great choice for a crowd pleaser. 

For this recipe, I decided to pair it with sweet figs, savory goat cheese, and (of course) salted pistachios! For your next get together, whip up a plate of these fig toast appetizers and pair it with a bottle of Pinot Noir and your guests will be swooning.

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F
  2. Slice the sourdough loaf into 1/4" slices, lay flat on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and salt & pepper to taste. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until the edges start to turn golden brown. Remove from oven, transfer toasts to a plate and set aside.
  3. Slice the figs in half. Lay the fig halves onto the baking sheet with the cut side facing up. Turn the oven to a high broil. Place the figs in the oven and broil for 4-5 minutes just until the figs soften and the tops start to color. Remove from oven and set aside.
  4. Place the toasts on a serving plate. Top with arugula and two fig halves.
  5. Evenly distribute the goat cheese amongst the toasts, top with pistachio. Drizzle honey and balsamic glaze. Serve & enjoy!
