Thanksgiving Wine Series: Fresh cranberry sauce

Date: Mon, Nov 24, 2008 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

The best thing about homemade Cranberry Sauce is the fantastically fresh flavors.  I love the combination of tart and sweet!  With some added sugar and the right spices everyone will think you spent hours on this - when really it takes just a few minutes! 1 package fresh cranberries (12-16oz) 1/2 cup sugar 2 TBS crystallized ginger 1 lemon [...] Related posts:

Put a Cork in it! New uses for old wood.

Date: Fri, Nov 21, 2008 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

ReCORK America Don’t get angry, I’m not telling you all to shut up. Give me a chance to explain what I mean by “it.” In this case, “it” is a mindset, or rather a lack of one. “It” is throwing things in the trash which can be reused or recycled. Seriously, stop throwing away corks. Even apart [...] Related posts:

Champagne, Cava, Sparkling wine and the American connection

Date: Tue, Nov 18, 2008 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Via tanakawho Sparkling wine, by definition, is “Wine that contains bubbles of carbon dioxide gas.” Anyone who has tasted the stuff knows that it is so much more than a bottle of bubbly. Any winery that produces a sparkling wine knows that it’s just not that simple. Sparkling wine has become synonymous with CELEBRATIONS, and a toast just [...] Related posts:

Thanksgiving Wine Series: Pumpkin Pie Cake

Pumpkin Pie Cake I’m sure this recipe has been shared all over the US - but I have to say it’s one of the easiest and best “pumpkin pie” recipes out there.  I am not one for “cheating” but if you hate making pie crust, try this instead.  It makes the equivalent of 2 pumpkin pies [...] Related posts:

Thanksgiving Wine Series: Broccoli Puff Casserole

The final product My mom has made this recipe every Thanksgiving for as long as I can remember. It’s one of those things I look forward to about Thanksgiving. Pair with Destino’s Rosé of Syrah for a great match. It’s NOT your grandma’s green bean casserole! 1.25 lbs of steamed fresh broccoli, chopped 1 can cream of mushroom soup 3/4 [...] Related posts:

Thanksgiving Wine Series: The many faces of Rosé

But then fall rolled around, and instead of cooling off – well, things got warm and spicy. By winter it [...] Related posts:

Thanksgiving Wine Series: Wine recommendations under $20

Your Thanksgiving celebration wouldn’t be complete without family and friends, decadent dishes, and that perfect bottle of wine. Personally, I find that the whole thing goes down a bit better after a few glasses of wine… I’m talking to you, close-talking Uncle Bob, and to you, shrieking-laugh Aunt Susie. Whatever Thanksgiving traditions you hold dear, the [...] Related posts:

Aluminum packaging for wine. A new friend on the shelf?

Date: Mon, Nov 10, 2008 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Aluminum can via itchys Of all the devices humankind has utilized to carry and preserve wine, it’s interesting that glass has become the end-all, be-all of containers. We’ve had ceramic containers, animal skins, and other capsules which, relative to glass, seem quite primitive. However, mankind can now split atoms, send people into outer-space, and clone living [...] Related posts:
