The “Big Pig” Sandwich

Hi friends! What a busy week it has been!  We had a very successful Memorial Day Weekend at the tasting room.  A big THANK YOU to all of you who came out and tasted and took home wine and feasted on our treats!  It was awesome meeting so many of you!

Pinot Noir and pork are a classic pairing and the inspiration for making this delish sandwich/pork burger.  We always have Noble Pig Pinot Noir around here so we might as well have pork too!

Enjoy this sandwich with your favorite chips, we know you will love it!  Don't forget the Pinot Noir too!!

    That is one gorgeous sandwich! I love the name- so fitting for your winery and blog! I can’t wait until I can have your wine shipped to me, Cathy! I am counting the days! :-)

  2. I’ll never complain about anything made with pork! Delicious! Wish I could have been tasting at your winery this weekend!

  3. That looks fantastic. Don’t know why I’ve never thought of making pork this way! I will be using this idea. mmmmmmm

  4. This has all the hallmarks of a delicious Pulled Pork Sandwich but without the hours of cooking the pork. I have a newborn, so a quick recipe like this is a major win. Yum yum!
