Hot peppers for cold winter days.

Feeling extra mellow in your post holiday hibernation? Whip up this recipe by Andrea Ratulowski of Food Embrace for Sweet and Smoky Shishito Peppers for an easy, warming treat. It's sure to get your juices flowing, especially when enjoyed like Andrea did, along side our 2014 Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc. Check out this wine as well as other available bottlings in our ONLINE STORE.

Here is a snippet of Andrea's post - visit Food Embrace for the whole recipe and more!


"With all the holiday functions and parties that happen during this time of year, I wanted to create a quick and simple appetizer that would be great for entertaining, parties, or as a way to kick off an intimate date night at home. While out shopping I came across some awesome looking shishito peppers and knew they would be perfect to use. Most times the peppers are paired with a dipping sauce but I wanted to wrap the peppers is a sweet and sticky sauce making them easier to prepare and eat.

These peppers and the 2014 Cultivar Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc really worked well together.  The crisp citrus notes of the wine balances out the smoky sweet sauce while the oaky herby notes compliments the earthy pepper flavor."

Thanks for being a part of our club, Andrea!
