Winter Wines and Foods that Love Them: Recommendations and Recipes from Maxine

With the arrival of cooler weather, heartier foods have taken the stage, and more robust wines are called for. Join our in-house Sommelier Maxine Borcherding as she presents recipes and wine pairing suggestions for winter wines that you can enjoy from now until spring.

Visit our Boutique to select from among four winter wine trios of reds chosen to complement hearty winter foods from a number of regions. Taste  these wines along with Maxine as she discusses them and the recipes that go with them.

Enjoy this online seminar in front of your fireplace from 4-5:30 pm on Saturday, December 11. 
The Zoom link will be sent to registrants a few days before the event.

Tickets are $20 for Alliance members and $25 for non-members. Enjoy our Bring A Friend Special and add a friend for free when you sign up!
