Slow-Roasted Pork Shoulder for Landmark Barbera

This week, we welcomed a new arrival to the tasting room: the 2016 vintage of our Landmark Barbera. When it comes to our Landmark collection, we've never met a bottle we didn't like. We're excited to share yet another superb vintage of this Barbera with our patrons and members. It is rich and velvety, boasting red fruit notes and a luxuriously long finish—sure to delight. Enjoy a taste from a wine flight here at the tasting room, or just open up a bottle! This wine is also sure to age well if you'd like to save it for a rainy day. 

To acclaim the arrival of this new vintage, we're roasting up a savory pork shoulder in a Mediterranean style. The complimentary flavor profiles make for a delicious meal and a lovely evening. As a little bonus, our recipe calls for a dry white wine, which means plenty leftover to sip while we cook!

Greek-Style Slow-Roasted Pork

Ingredients

  • 30 oz Pork Shoulder
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp Salt
  • 4 Garlic Cloves
  • 12 Oregano Sprigs
  • 12 Thyme Sprigs
  • 2 cups Chicken Stock
  • 1/2 cup Dry White Wine, such as Trebbiano
  • 1 oz Shallots
  • 3 oz Yukon Gold Potatoes
  • 2 oz Baby Carrots
  • 2 Lemons

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Prepare the roast by trimming off excess skin. Place the meat in a large roasting pan.
  3. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt, then cut small slits over the surface of the pork using a small, sharp knife.
  4. Place oregano and thyme sprigs, slices of garlic in each slit, tucking them in carefully. 
  5. Combine stock and wine. Drizzle the mixture around the pork and cover the roasting pan with foil.
  6. Bring to a boil and roast in the oven for 1 hour.
  7. After 1 hour, remove the foil and spoon the juices from the pan over the pork. Arrange the onions, potatoes, carrots, slices of lemon and olives around the roast.
  8. Roast for another 30 mins.
  9. Let it rest for at least 10 minutes before carving.
  10. Serve with gravy and a bottle of 2016 Landmark Collection Barbera.
