You all know what I’m gonna say if you live in the Twin Cities metro area and you tune into Fox 9 daily in our local area…  “In case you missed it!”

Yep, you got it!  Here’s my segment with friend and host, Jason Matheson, of The Jason Show on Fox 9 this morning, pairing what?  Christmas Cookies and Wine!  You got it!  Tune in to see what I paired to the classic holiday cookie plate.  Gingerbread, spritz and peanut butter blossom cookies — I’ve got the answers!

Here’s what I paired:

Chandon sparkling Rosé – California with spritz cookies

Forstmeister Geltz ‘Zilliken’ Kabinett Riesling – Mosel, Germany with the classic spritz cookie

Birichino Muscat Canelli – Monterey, California with the classic frosted sugar cookie

Château Roûmieu-Lacoste Semillon – Sauternes, Bordeaux, France with peanut butter blossoms

Forlorn Hope ‘Suspiro del Moro’ Alvarelhão ~ Sacramento County, California with glazed gingerbread cookies

Great Divide ‘Yeti’ Imperial Stout – Colorado with peanut brittle

  • I truly can’t say enough about the lovely wine tasting we did for our company at Café Ena with Leslee.
    It was a perfect evening feeding all of our senses with food, wine, and great company. I will remember every taste.
    Our clients had a truly memorable evening and we have received many wonderful comments from our event.
    Leslee’s ability to share your knowledge in a way that is educational, exciting and great fun is extraordinary.

    Thanks for making me look so good!
