Wine Lovers and Cooks-

Please enjoy our extensive collection of recipes! Created by Chef Kristine Schug, each recipe was developed for a particular wine. Our collection is cross-referenced, too- you may search a category of wine and find recipes for it, or you can search by recipe type.

Our family has long held that food and wine belong together, in keeping with the European tradition. We encourage you to explore our recipes and try them with our wines. Whether the occasion is simple and casual or more formal and celebratory, our collection of wines will be natural partners with your menus.

Guten Appetit!
