Today I’m partnering with Entwine wines to bring you easy recipe you can make the spring summer. Little about entwine  and how this brand all began! Hint –> food is involved! entwine began when America’s oldest wineries and the most trusted name in food: Wente Vineyards and Food Network joined forces.

“Using a shared passion for food and wine as our guide, we’ve created wines that are delicious on their own, yet also work with the flavors of food to make any meal more enjoyable. In developing these signature wines, Food Network’s culinary team worked hand-in-hand with Fifth Generation Winemaker Karl Wente during the blending process to ensure that each wine had its own distinct personality and flavor”.

Oh and y’all, that he did! This wine is full of personality and flavor! Each grape and blend is so unique. The wine I’m using in this chili lime mango marinated chicken recipe is entwine Pinot Grigio. It’s a crisp white wine full of unique fruity layers. Layers like lime and honey. Sounds refreshing, right? Trust me it is!
