Nothing says summertime like grilling up some brats! But who wants boring ketchup, mustard & relish? This month I created four new topping combinations for your summertime brats which will certainly elevate the boring brat to gourmet grilling status! Enjoy your summer brats with a cold glass of our wildly popular Pinot Noir/Riesling and raise a toast to summertime!
  • Bratwurst
  • Buns
  • Your favorite toppings (see below for gourmet inspiration)

Four new topping combinations to elevate your grilling experience:


  • Grilled Corn Salsa
    Shuck 5 ears of sweet corn. Rub with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and fresh ground pepper. Grill over medium heat turning every 3-4 minutes until slightly blackened on all sides. Once cooled, cut kernels off each cob. Add 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper, the juice of 1 lime, a drizzle of olive oil, 1/4 cup minced red onion, and 1 minced jalapeno (seeds removed). Toss well. (Use this salsa on top of brats, burgers, grilled fish or chicken).

    Slice yellow sweet onion into thin slices and place the onion in a frying pan with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt over medium heat. Cook until the onions are caramelized and have turned deep brown.
  • Blue Cheese Crumbles
  • Granny Smith Apple Matchsticks
    Slice each apple into 1/8 inch thin slices discarding the core then slice each apple slice into 1/8 inch matchsticks. Toss immediately with freshly squeezed lemon juice to prevent browning.
