Happy Holidays, y’all! We are so excited to spend time with our family and friends, we can’t wait to see our loved ones unwrap the meaningful gifts we found for them, and most of all we are so pumped for holiday cookies!!! We like to take food to the next level around here and while it’s hard to upgrade cookies, we found a way: WINE!
Here are our favorite holiday cookies to compliment our favorite wines!
Vanilla Macarons and Rosé
The light and airy macaron in a subtle, simple, vanilla flavor will perfectly compliment our sweet and fresh 2015 Sonoma County Rosé without over complicating the palate!
Shortbread Cookies and Chardonnay
Shortbread cookies and our 2015 Sonoma County Chardonnay are basically cousins! Chardonnay is a full-bodied white wine with a buttery undertone and notes of vanilla. Sounds exactly like a shortbread cookie to us!
Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies and Cabernet Sauvignon
A savory, full bodied red wine like our 2015 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is the perfect match for a classic chocolate chip cookie…especially when it’s gone full-blown holiday mode with peppermint candy chips!
Thumbprint Cookies and Pinot Noir
Thumbprint cookies, with their buttery shortbread base and tasty jam at the center, become the perfect pairing to a complex red like our 2015 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. With its rich, fruity character it’s an amazing compliment to a rich raspberry jam.
Tell us! What are your favorite pairings? We hope you have a beautiful holiday season with lots of opportunities to experiment!
