Twice a year, during KCRW’s membership drive, Good-Food’s go-to wine guru Stacie Hunt carefully selects a special thank you gift for members who pledge their support. This year she chose two Basque style wines. Members who pledge $10/month or more during the pledge drive can choose this as their thank you gift during the drive. (Click here to learn more about the wines.)

Below, Stacie also shares two recipes to pair with her two Basque-style wine selections. The first one, a traditional Basque paella, pairs with the 2009 Beronia Crianza Tempranillo from Rioja Alta and the second pork-based paella is perfect with the 2009 Pyrneese Pinot Noir from Oregon’s Umpqua Valley. Best of all, it can be made in the slow cooker for easy-entertaining.
