It is the time of year when the air is full of the smell of fermentation and the tasting room is buzzing with customers taking in the last remaining bit of warmth before the cool Fall temps set in. These crisp fleeting days of Fall cause me to think of warm fires, comfort foods and wine shared over conversation with family and friends. Many of our wines are the perfect pairings for my Fall cravings. I recently paired our Marquette with a hearty beef stew and roasted acorn squash and it was spectacular. Petite Pearl I served with eggplant parmesan and breaded beef cutlets and it was oh so tasty. Although I love to “Explore my Taste,” I still go back to long time favorites, like Frozen Tundra Red and grilled hamburgers and potato chips enjoyed over a Packer Game. Also, I can never forgot my Bubbler, which is always perfect on its own or as a before dinner drink with a cheese platter. There are no rules when it comes to food and wine pairing, only recommendations.
So this Fall and upcoming holiday season I encourage you to “Explore Your Taste” and try new recipes and wine pairings, I find it to be one of those simple pleasures in life!
