Hearty Fall Brunch Caramelized Onion and Gruyère Quiche (NYT Cooking) + 2019 Anderson Valley Chardonnay
"Tender, sweet bits of onion suffuse this classic, savory tart, which gets its brawny, salty tang from browned chunks of cured pork (lardons, pancetta, or bacon), all bound with a nutmeg-flecked custard. It’s a dish that feels both delicate and rich and makes a lovely lunch or brunch dish. .." NYT Cooking
Chardonnay and Gruyère are a match made in heaven. For this one... keep it simple. Minimal quality ingredients, just enough fat for the wine's acid to cut through, and time to enjoy a great brunch with your favorite crew. Grab a chilled bottle of our 2019 Anderson Valley Chardonnay and enjoy the beautiful marriage of flavors.
"Roasting butternut squash with herbs and garlic gives this healthy soup a more complex flavor. A bit of maple syrup adds sweetness, while a splash of apple cider vinegar brightens up the flavors. ..." EatingWell
The balance of our minimal barrel influence and the bright structure of our 2019 Anderson Valley Chardonnay make this a perfect fall pairing for that long slow lunch around this classic Fall soup.
"Kardea’s sky-high burgers are stacked with iceberg lettuce, fried onions, blue cheese dressing and bacon...." Food Network
Sometimes simple is the best solution. A well seasoned burger and the juicy 2018 Terratorium Cabernet Franc are a perfect pairing for your next fall cookout. Crack a bottle and give this elevated recipe a try. Life is too short to only cookout one way.
"Sweet and savory curry powder is combined with honey and a pleasantly tart grapefruit juice to create a rich glaze for your above-average weeknight bird. ..." NYT Cooking
These flavors are complemented beautifully by the medium-bodied dark fruits and herbaceous flavors of our Terratorium 2018 Cabernet Franc. Something about a perfectly roasted chicken and great red wine makes us feel like we've reached the epitome of that "fall feeling."
"Get into the fall spirit with this one-pan gnocchi with a creamy pumpkin sauce. Some pumpkin and other squash sauces can be cloyingly sweet, but not this one--it's savory all the way, thanks to the bacon, garlic and thyme. ..." EatingWell
Cut through these creamy flavors with our crisp 2019 Anderson Valley Chardonnay. Perfect for a Fall weeknight evening with a cooking time of just 30 minutes. You could even save some for lunch the next day, but we can't guarantee it won't bum you out to eat this in your cubicle without a killer Chard.
Dinner Party Prep Ahead Entrée - Mushroom Pot Pie (NYT Cooking) + 2018 Alexander Valley Cabernet Franc
"Dried porcini mushrooms and caramelized fresh mushrooms give this dish plenty of deep, earthy flavor. Sweet parsnips, garlicky kale, carrots and potatoes round out the mushroom filling, but if those don’t suit you, the filling is fully flexible. ..." NYT Cooking
The full earthy and creamy flavors of this dish pair beautifully with the moderate tannins and acid of our 2018 Terratorium Cabernet Franc. Prep ahead, call some friends, crack some bottles, and enjoy the evening!
