Taste Washington Wine Month is here, and to celebrate each week, we’ll be sending you some of our favorite recipes to enjoy at home. Don’t miss our suggested wine pairings at the bottom of the page!
First up, Cabernet and Casserole.
When it comes to casserole, we want one that is the perfect end to a day spent skiing, snowshoeing or playing in the snow. A one dish wonder that is sophisticated, yet comfortable and pairs beautifully with a Reininger Cabernet or Helix Cabernet. And so we offer up our modern take on Shepherd's Pie, featuring more veg and less meat. Because, is there a better way to eat a concoction of carrots, onions, mushrooms, rosemary, thyme, ground beef and red wine, blanketed by a layer of mashed potatoes?
The Walla Walla Valley is famous for its Sweet Onions, and did you know caramelized onions pair beautifully with red wine?
Just in time for today’s big game, we’re making up a batch of caramelized onion dip with frizzled leeks, plus light and easy chicken sloppy joe sliders. The addition of mushroom adds an umami flavor that goes great with our 2017 Helix Cabernet Sauvignon and 2016 Helix Pomatia.
For other dips, we highly recommend this skinny buffalo chicken dip recipe and cheese biscuits.
featuring more veggies, less meat!
Is there a better way to eat a concoction of carrots, onions, mushrooms, rosemary, thyme, ground beef and red wine than when blanketed by a layer of mashed potatoes? Paired with a Cabernet Sauvignon, there’s not much that can beat it for sophisticated comfort-food. Try it with our 2016 Helix Cabernet from Phinny Hill Vineyards.
