Wine country just got a little tastier with the launch of Winemaker’s Pantry by Napa private chef and Food Network contestant-personality Sharon Damante.

Sharon Damante

Her line of spice blends, crafted  to  pair with specific wine varietals, has been popping up at wineries including Silverado Vineyards and Jacuzzi Family and, at retail icons like Oakville Grocery. Damante, who has been mentored on air by both Chef Curtis Stone and Guy Fieri, says her “grape idea” fills a delicious niche, making it easy for wine-loving cooks to create great pairings at home.” Winemaker’s Pantry Spice Pairings are available for Cabernet, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Sauv Blanc, in retail bottles and gift packets for wine clubs. www.winemakerspantry.com
