Which wine pairs well with courgettes?

Sylvaner Alto Adige DOC
The courgette soup is wonderfully fresh and creamy. It contrasts beautifully with wines like Sylvaner, which, with their fresh fruitiness and delicate grassy notes, add a touch of excitement to the dish.

Müller Thurgau Alto Adige DOC
A youthful Müller Thurgau from higher locations in Alto Adige goes perfectly with the summery aromas of the courgette cream soup.


Step 1

Spread the capers on a baking sheet and dry in the oven at 80 °C.

Step 2

Dice the leeks and braise them in a pot with some oil and the bay leaf. Add the potatoes, cubed, before covering with stock and cooking for 10 minutes. Add the cubed courgette, season to taste, bring to the boil, and blend with half of the marjoram.

Step 3

Garnish the robiola with a twist of pepper, a little oil, and the remaining marjoram.

Step 4

Halve the tomatoes, scoop out the seeds and slice the flesh.

Step 5

Plate the courgette cream and top with the robiola, sliced tomato, and a dusting of nutmeg. Garnish with capers.
