Autumn Comfort and the Perfect Wine Pairing

Wine in hand, make the last of the warm weather count!

Autumn is here, the leaves are changing and our tastes are turning to hearty vegetables and comfort food. Enjoy delicious in-season fruits and vegetables with an at home al fresco lunch or BBQ and the perfect Villa Maria wine. 

Find inspiration in these recipe ideas and their perfect wine pairings.

Creamy Mushroom, Fennel and Chicken Pappardelle is a comforting and elegant date night meal. As a dish packed with fragrant thyme, mushrooms and creamy mascarpone, keep things rich and tasteful with the bright floral aroma of a Villa Maria Reserve Pinot Noir.

Create a splendid al fresco style lunch spread, with a delightful baked cheese dish and tasty roast chicken with veggies. Pair with a fresh and fragrant Villa Maria Cellar Selection Chardonnay, allowing each element to shine in all its glory.

Or on those cooler Autumn nights, whip up a Ricotta Gnudi with brown butter, sage and hazelnuts. Take things up a notch, pairing with a fresh glass of Villa Maria’s EarthGarden Chardonnay to bring out the ricotta creaminess.

Villa Maria wines are available for online orders and in supermarkets nationwide.
