Black Bean Burger with District 7 Pinot Noir

This Black Bean Burger and Pinot Noir Pairing was made in partnership with District 7 Wines. Recipe and ideas are my own.

Calling all wine lovers! 

I have some really exciting news for you… 

I’ve teamed up with District 7 to introduce their selection of delicious wines! They offer a range of both red and white wines that you can find here but you can’t go wrong with trying them all! From their Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon, they offer a unique taste for any palette.

Personally, I’m a fan of the Pinot Noir which is a fruit-forward blend that also incorporates hints of tartness, sweetness, and an aftertaste of smoky oak. I love pairing the Pinot Noir with burgers, especially a black bean burger! (Be sure to check out my recipe below.)

Family-owned and operated, District 7 is based out of the beautiful, coastal Monterey County in California. This area is recognized as one of the most diverse winegrowing regions in the world. Along with their location, District 7 is 100% certified sustainable which means they’re fully powered by renewable energy via their on-site wind turbine.

If that doesn’t blow you away, then you’ll be highly impressed that the grapes harvested are 100% estate-grown, practically bringing their high-quality ingredients from the farm-to-table! 

Whether you’re a wine aficionado or just an avid sipper, you’ll definitely enjoy District 7 wines.
