Immediately we thought that the mixture between carrots, orange and ginger could be a refreshing juice, full of vitamins. On this occasion, we present a recipe that comes out of the ordinary: a light cream to serve freshly made, warm or even cold as a non-traditional appetizer.

Pinot Noir is one of the most versatile varieties to pair soups and creams, especially if they have sweet ingredients, as in this case are carrots, oranges and butter. Ginger is slightly spicy and acidic, so while it raises the aromas and flavors of the cream, it difficults the work of the sommelier when it comes to find the proper wine.

However, we propose you to enjoy this cream with Casillero del Diablo Pinot Noir, with its characteristic notes of strawberries and raspberries, as well as petals of rose, cedar and tobacco. For a better experience, enjoy it at a low temperature, from 10 to 12 degrees Celsius.

Recipe (for 2 PAX)

Crema Zanahoria 1


4 carrots
50 grs butter
2 garlic cloves
2 celeery sticks
½ onion
1 spoon of grind ginger
300 cc of vegetable broth
Juice of 4 oranges
150 cc of cream
Salt and Pepper


Crema Zanahoria 2

  1. Peel the carrots and celery, cutting them into large pieces.
  2. In a pot, sauté the celery, the onions (also in large chunks) and add the grated ginger with the vegetable broth, orange juice, salt and pepper to your own taste.
  3. Bring to a boil for 20 minutes and then process it until the cream is soft and bright.
  4. Serve on deep plates, bowls or mugs: we recommend putting a little cream on top and some fresh green chopped topping, such as oregano leaves or green onions.
  5. The most important thing: serve the glasses of Pinot Noir and enjoy this delicious pairing in good company!
