“Customers tend to lean on us for wine pairings, since Chef [Nina] Compton’s food is so unique,” says Wine Director Harrison Hileman. He’s greatly expanded the bottle list since joining last November, adding an array of elegant Old World wines that work with Compton’s Southern-Italian-Caribbean hybrid menu.
From the Sommelier: “I’m personally excited about the resurgence of German and Austrian wines. These bright, rich wines are absolutely heavenly with all of the bold, spicy flavors of Cajun and Creole food. And nothing beats the summer heat like a couple bottles of trocken Riesling by the pool.” —Harrison E. Hileman, Compère Lapin
