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: French Apple Tart


Capitalize on the cheap cooking apples this autumn or use your own from the garden and make this delicious French Apple Tart. This adapted recipe is less sweet than the Mary Berry original meaning that there is more room for manoeuvre when choosing a wine match.

Cocktail of the Week: Mulled Wine


With Halloween and Bonfire Night fast approaching and having tiredly negotiated the clocks changing at the weekend, we wanted to share our favourite recipe for Mulled Wine - a warming drink that’s guaranteed to make your toes toasty as the days shorten and the weather turns.

Seasonal Produce: Stuffed Pumpkin Meets its Match in Wine


There is no better time to be making the most of the finest seasonal produce, and with Halloween just around the corner we wanted to encourage you to cook with the king of the vegetable patch rather than just carve into them!
