Are you ready to make the most of you holiday season? For me, I love to spend quality time with my friends and family. And especially when it comes to picking out that go-to gift to give this time of year? Well that’s when I know how to pair the holiday cheer with delicious Wente Wine!
Which starts with the most important thing to pair with the holidays…make time for them! Taking one look at this 2016 Morning Fog Chardonnay, and I loved knowing it was from a vineyard that was family owned and sustainably farmed. I also had a sudden urge for all things brunch and tree trimming!
So of course, out came the fruit to pair well with those “crisp green apple and tropical fruit” notes. Holiday grapes, ripe bananas, and easy-to-peel clementines found themselves at my table. Finger foods reign supreme as you stop frequently to nibble, nosh, and adorn any tree. So adding an aged sweet cheddar and table crackers are sure to keep any party going as well.
Moving around this table, know that orange juice would mix just as well this Chardonnay as it would with a sparkling wine. And whipping up a plate of fluffy scrambled eggs proved to be just the ticket to turn an everyday nibble into a memorable meal. Another great things to add as you separate the tinsel? Pistachios. And let’s not forget to pass that mango mochi ice cream bites!
So if you’re looking to make time to love the journey of life this holiday season? Then bring your family together for all the moments that can make it special. Turn your holiday tasks into a tradition. That impromptu gathering into an event. And remember that if you do need a wine for the holidays, think Wente Vineyards!
