California winemaker Gina Gallo, of Gallo of Sonoma winery, used the distinctive textures and flavors in Rori Trovato's recipes to shape her pairing suggestions. Melding food and wine comes naturally to Gallo, a third-generation vintner. Her grandfather Julio (brother of Ernest) paved the way, and Gina Gallo spent her childhood surrounded by grapevines and delicious food—not to mention an entire community of serious wine lovers.
