In my dreams, I picture myself traveling throughout Europe with my family, stopping to enjoy a simple picnic lunch – one with a good bottle of wine and good food – before traveling on to explore the wonders of the continent. Until that becomes reality, there isn’t any reason that I cannot go ahead and have that picnic lunch while I explore areas that are a bit closer to home.
In today’s post, I am sharing with you a recipe for a delicious sandwich that pairs well with Estancia Cabernet Sauvignon – Roast Beef Sandwich With Creamy Horseradish Sauce. They’re both perfect for filling a picnic basket.
Why Estancia? The simple answer would be taste. But to be more technical, the Estancia (that’s “estate” in Spanish) brand is founded on the concept of “terroir” (that’s French referring to the environmental conditions, especially soil and climate, in which grapes are grown and that give a wine its unique flavor and aroma). Estancia is dedicated to making the very best wine possible and never compromising on the process.
Naturally, the intense dark fruit and mocha aromas and the dark cherry, currants, and chocolate flavors of Estancia’s Cabernet Sauvignon pair wonderfully with cheese and chocolate. But one cannot live on cheese and chocolate alone, right? My Roast Beef Sandwich With Creamy Horseradish Sauce has bold flavors that also pair well with the beautiful red wine.
The sandwich is easy to make. Start with a hearty Italian or French baguette. Slice it in half and place a thin layer of butter on both halves to help keep it from getting soggy. Then top the bottom layer with roast beef, vine-ripened tomato, curly leaf lettuce, and then a simple homemade creamy horseradish sauce.
- 1 Italian or French baguette
- 1/3 pound thinly sliced deli roast beef
- curly leaf lettuce
- 1 to mato
Creamy Horseradish Sauce
- 1/2 up Greek yogurt or sour cream
- 3 Tablespoons prepared grated horseradish
- 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
- pinch of salt

- Slice the baguette and place a small layer of butter on each half.
- Layer bottom half with roast beef, lettuce, and tomato.
- Place a layer of creamy horseradish sauce on top half and place on top of the prepared bottom half.
- Slice in half.
For the Creamy Horseradish Sauce:
- Combine all ingredients and place in refrigerator for 1-2 hours before using.
Voilà! All you need now is to sit back and relax, take in the moment, and picture yourself at your favorite destination.
