24 Wines of Christmas - week 1





We're feeling festive at CellarVie Wines, it being the 1st of December.  We've already scoffed the chocolate from the first window in the advent calendar and Jon is getting creative with tinsel... don't ask about the baubles.
 
Anyway, moving on, the team are all excited about the run up to the big day, so we have created a special food and wine matching for the next twenty-four days, our idea being to come up with "24 wines of Christmas" which we love and which we hope will help and inspire you this Christmas.
 
Some recipes are not necessarily all that festive but we have tried them out and matched them with wines from the CellarVie range, so all you have to do is place your order, put on your pinny and get creative.  Just make sure you check the food & wine pages of the blog for the full recipes and feedback on what you thought of the combination.
 
So why not have a look at our 1st Day of Christmas recipe or feel free to tell us your favourite wine and food matches are in general?

Seasonal Produce: Poached Pears


Poaching pears for pud may not be as popular a dessert as the quintessentially British crumble, but when it comes to the end of a large meal, sometimes the humble pear is the icing on top of the cake. A poached pear is an ideal, lighter alternative to a winter pudding: warming, delicious and fat-free.
 
Plus, it gives you the excuse to open that extra bottle of wine, so who’s complaining now?!
 
A pear’s seasonality is from September through to January, and it’s a fruit that’s synonymous with Christmas, second perhaps only to the clementine.
