The Perfect Wine Pairing!

Hey All!

Everyone knows how crazy the holiday season can be. That’s why sometimes you need to take some time to relax and veg out after a busy day of getting ready for the holidays. Whether it’s shopping for gifts or decorating, it can become very stressful. To relax, I sometimes invite some friends over for a little holiday venting get-together! I make some of our favorite holiday comfort foods and pair them with Sonoma-Cutrer Wines Sonoma Coast Chardonnay and Russian River Pinot Noir. Sonoma-Cutrer’s fruit-forward wines truly pair well with a variety of foods! Sometimes you need to just eat, sip some delish wine, and vent during the holidays.

I invited some friends over for a few hours of vegging out time. I whipped up a batch of fried chicken. Nothing is better than tasty friend chicken! It’s the ultimate comfort food. We paired it with this Sonoma Coast Chardonnay.


You’d be surprised just how delish fried chicken is with wine. I pair them together often.


I’m a white wine type of gal and so are most of my gal pals. We love to sip on our wine and vent about trying to find that hard to find holiday toy. We munch on our chicken and enjoy our rare free moment to ourselves.


When we have time to have a full on dinner to ourselves, I make a delicious Potato Casserole. It’s easy to make and the casserole is always a hit with my friends. I love to pair it with this Russian River Pinot Noir.


This Pinot Noir is absolutely amazing and it goes perfectly with my casserole. I’m a firm believer that potatoes pretty much match with any wine.


The flavors of this wine combined with the casserole are the perfect mix of savory and sweet.


When we have a dinner night in, we usually make it a girls night in and we chat, eat, and sip the night away. Remember you must be 21 years or older to drink wine and you should never drink and drive. When we have any nights when we are drinking, we always call a cab or one of us is designated driver.


It’s so great to have delicious wines to enjoy with our favorite comfort foods and meals during this busy holiday season. It’s always a lovely time to spend some time with friends and sip on some delicious wine. It really does relax us and allows us to reset during the hectic holiday season.
