5 Essential Comfort Food Recipes & Wines to Pair With

October 03, 2017

This week’s tragedy in Las Vegas has left me reeling.

Wines like Viognier, oaked Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are all excellent choices which really embody the Fall spirit. They also pair brilliantly with the delicious dishes we all love to enjoy this time of year as well like Rosemary Roasted Chicken with Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms and Lamb Ragu with Tagliatelle Pasta.
