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

  • Leslee did a fabulous job in putting together an exquisite wine tasting event for our Maestro’s Circle. These top donors expect the highest level of sophistication from the Minnesota Orchestra and Leslee delivered. Not only did she speak eloquently about the wines served, but she arranged for fantastic cheese pairings and even etched wine glasses with our logo. It was a memorable event and I would proudly work with Leslee any time. Scott Mays, Advancement Officer
