The Nickel & Nickel Guide to Steak and Cabernet

Steak and Cabernet. It's a quintessential wine and food pairing for a reason. At Nickel & Nickel, our winery kitchen is constantly coming up with new ways to prepare our favorite cuts of beef. In fact, over the years we've published nearly a dozen steak recipes matched with Napa Valley Cabernet.

From the ultimate Monday Night Football sliders to the fall-off-the-bone short ribs we cook up every fall, check out our top five recipes. They're each partnered with the Single-Vineyard Cabernet that complements it most.

The recipes are unique. The wines are flavor packed. Because steak and Cabernet should be anything but boring.
