Day #5 of the year.
Villa Matilde Falanghina Campania IGP
Today is National Keto Day… Look, I’m not Keto and I don’t have plans to try it anytime soon. If you think anything is separating me from a bowl of warm truffle gnocchi, you are mistaken. I will admit however, that most dry wine is Keto friendly when consumed in moderation. Most dry wines have 3-5 grams of carbs per serving, which makes them a good beverage choice when watching your carb intake. It is carby-er beverages such as cocktails, dessert wines like port, and regular beer that would throw someone out of Ketosis. So when it comes to our Keto friendly friends, or in my case a favorite aunt who routinely goes keto January 1st each year following our holiday cookie binge, dry white wines like Villa Matilde’s Falanghina is an welcome companion to a 10-carb dinner. This Falanghina is good with a variety of fish, pasta (for me), and assorted soft cheeses which makes it perfect for Keto and non-keto diets a like!
