We’ve waited for it all year and it’s finally upon us; tomato season! These versatile little fruits come in all shapes, sizes and colors and, depending on how you prepare them, make perfect partners to a wide variety of wines. Here are some of our favorite tomato dishes alongside the wines that love them.
