Pairing Tanglewood Wines with the Perfect Warm Winter Meals

By | Blog, Recipes, Wine Pairings | No Comments

Two big problems with winter: It’s very cold, and we run out of things to do. One of the very best ways to warm up in this chilly winter weather is to cook a comforting warm meal. Cooking is also a fun date night in when the roads are too dangerous to venture out.

It’s tough to come up with dinner ideas that are both comforting and fun to make! We’ve rounded up a few great meals to keep you warm this winter that also pair perfectly with our wines!

 

  1. Fettuccine Alfredo

 

This creamy, warm Fettuccine Alfredo is both delicious and easy to make! Grab a bottle of Traminette and you’ve got yourself a restaurant-quality dining experience without having to put your boots on and brave the freezing temps!

 

  1. Barbeque Pulled Pork

 

Would you rather take a hot bath or cozy up in a blanket in front of Netflix than spend the evening cooking? Make this one in the morning and come home to a house that smells amazing and a ready-to-eat meal that is sure to please everyone in the family. Pick up some Blue Silk from your local Spartan Store before you get home for the ultimate treat yourself night!

 

  1. Spaghetti with Bacon, Breadcrumbs, and Arugula

 

Get the kids on board with Arugula and have an excuse to drink your favorite Michigan sweet red wine! Spaghetti is a reliable comfort food that may seem like old news, but this recipe adds some interest to a familiar favorite, and — when paired with Frontenac — feels like a brand new meal!

 

  1. Flourless Chocolate Cake

 

Whichever recipe you try for dinner, finish the evening with a major treat! Pair our Blue Blood Port with a flourless Chocolate Cake and enjoy chocolate heaven in front of a warm fire!
