Thanksgiving, it’s one of my favorite times of year! In our home, enjoying Thanksgiving means spending time with those we care about, brilliant conversations, and gorgeous food of course. To keep me focused on spending more time with my guests, I make sure to keep a few key ingredients on hand, some bottles of incredible wine ready and the menu full of flavor yet easy to prepare.
During this time of year, you’ll find these simple go-to ingredients and staples in my kitchen: ready to bake baguettes, crackers, butternut and acorn squash, a selection of cheeses and cured meats, fresh and dried herbs, fresh fruits, and a selection of my favorite Sonoma-Cutrer wines.
Bruschettas are amazing appetizers, you can create such an array of flavors, and everyone loves them. I decided to make this Thanksgiving inspired Sage and Butternut Bruschetta, and I’ve paired it with Sonoma Cutrer’s Russian River Ranches Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
The Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay is an aromatic wine that will remind you of apples and pears, with a crisp, zesty flavor that is made from the Sonoma Coast appellation, perfect for producing exceptional Chardonnay.
If you prefer the Pinot Noir, you’re definitely in for a treat! This wine is richly textured and nicely balanced. You will sense the flavors of black cherry, tobacco and sweet barrel spice, finishing off each sip with a beautiful smooth finish.
You can easily order these wines and more at Sonoma-Cutrer, and they will be delivered to you. If you happen to be in Sonoma County, California, you can also enjoy one of their lovely Tours and Tastings while you’re there!
Enjoy your gatherings with beautiful wines and gorgeous food!Print
