Recipes

try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun!

When wine and food are paired correctly the result is a sublime experience so we wanted to provide easy, useful recipes so you could really enjoy our wines in your own home.


Our Recipes

We called our recipes "Wednesday Night" recipes and they have four requirements

  • You have to be able to buy all of the ingredients in your local supermarket
  • You have to be able to cook them in an apartment kitchen - not the Viking kitchen - a regular kitchen with regular pots and pans.
  • They should take an hour to prep and cook.
  • They should work perfectly with the wine.
So on Wednesday night you can pick up the ingredients on your way home, cook the recipe in your own kitchen and an hour later be enjoying a nice meal with a beautiful wine.

Before you leave work on Wednesday you can search our recipes, filtering by wine or course or food type or even special needs like vegetarian to find the perfect pairing.

Recipe Creation

We produce almost forty new wines each year and each needs its own set of recipes. Originally we, Dawn and Bill, developed the recipes in our home kitchen.

Now our culinary team of five chefs develops the recipes and, even though we have a commercial kitchen, we still develop them in our own home kitchen which is where the videos are produced. This ensures that each recipe can easily be created in a normal home kitchen.


Recipe Inspiration Julia Child The French Chef book

Dawn and Bill have spent 50 years traveling the globe dining at hundreds of restaurants across five continents. Their love of food and wine is legendary.

When thinking of this venture they were influenced by the great Julia Child, recognized for introducing French cuisine to America and her television programs, the most notable, The French Chef, which premiered in 1963.

Julia was famous for her on-screen antics and her kitchen, pictured above, was the setting for three of her television shows. It is now on display at the National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.
