Suggested wine pairings for the Shrimp and Mango Adobado Salad with Roasted Corn and Avocado Salsa :
Cotes du Rhone E. Guigal 2007 $11.95: “This light and summery wine with citrus accents is a perfect compliment to the shrimp, mango and spice in this dish.” 
Mattebella Vineyards 2008 Rose $18.99, www.mattebellavineyards.com: “ This award-winning rose flatters this dish with it’s crisp strawberry notes.”
Sonoma-Cutrer Les Pierres Chardonnay 2004 Vintage $38.99: “The Chardonnay’s rounded oakiness enhances the flavours from the grill and is an antidote to the sweetness from the mango.”

Suggested wines pairings for the Latin Sliders with Caramelized Onion and Jalapeno Relish and Red Pepper Mayonnaise:
Messina Hof Gewurtraminer 2006, $11: “This was a surprising forerunner to pair with the Latin burgers.  The slightly sweet yet dry elderflower notes perfectly accented all the flavours in the burger.”
Ique Malbec 2008, $10.95: “This young, fruity red is an affordable, easy-drinking barbecue wine.” 
Mattebella Old World Blend Red Table Wine 2005, $29.95, www.mattebellavineyards.com: “This was the clear winner to drink alongside the Latin Slider.  This elegant wine features dark-fruit flavours of blackberries and plums which juxtapose perfectly alongside the sweet onions, piquant jalapenos and spiced meat.”

Suggested wine pairings for the Grilled Pineapple with Rum Whipped Cream:
Fall Creek Vineyards Chenin Blanc 2007, $6.99, http://www.fcv.com/wines: ”The ripe apple and sweet pear flavours in this extremely afforadable wine were perfect alongside the smoky, sweet tang of the grilled pineapple.”
Green Point Yarra Valley Pinot Noir Rose 2008, $18, www.mhusa.com: “Rose is always a perfect choice for al fresco dining and this is a wonderfully dry—yet fruity—illustration of why.” 
Mattebella White Table Wine $18.99, www.mattebellavineyards.com: “The clean, crisp Chablis-esque notes in this sophisticated white work beautifully alongside this fruity desert.”
