Sarah Suarez has assembled one of the best wine lists in the Valley at Gaskins, the Germantown gathering spot she runs with her husband, chef Nick Suarez. Inspired by her time working at Diner and Marlow & Sons in Brooklyn, she features natural wines from growers in France and Italy. In the kitchen, Nick gathers ingredients from local farms for simple dishes that let the wines shine. This spring, great matches included the kale salad with pickled shallots and maple vinaigrette—delicious with the Bornard Point Barre Ploussard—and a housemade cavatelli with oyster mushrooms, ramps, chiles and ricotta, a rich dish made even better with the earthy and floral 2009 Olivier Horiot Rosé des Riceys, an aged still rosé from Champagne.
