Having quiche for brunch on holidays has always been a tradition in the Brys family. Expanding on the traditional Quiche Lorraine which has bacon and gruyere cheese, I decided to add shittake mushrooms, sauteed spinach and shallots.
Homemade Italian Meatloaf and our Cab/Merlot is a perfect comfort food combination. The rich and savory tomato topping replaces traditional (and boring) ketchup and the absence of bread crumbs (which absorb fat) makes this dish gluten free and calorie friendly.

Short ribs are a longstanding comfort food for many who appreciate slow cooking, and Patrick has held nothing back with an all out feast of earthy, creamy flavors that satisfy the winter palate. Nestled on a bed of roasted wild mushrooms and finished with a from-scratch cream sauce, these Pinot Noir-infused ribs are worth the time it takes to impress your guests. Cozy up!
The flavors of pear, apple and peach found in our Riesling go incredibly well with fall inspired dinners. For this recipe I combined flavors of pork, sage, caramelized shallots and honey crisp apples to create a quick and easy dinner which can be ready in 30 minutes or less.
February is Riesling month and this recipe was created specifically to pair perfectly with our estate grown Riesling! The braised chicken thighs in Riesling wine and other flavor goodies create an amazingly moist and rich winter dish. And the roasted potatoes provide a little crunch to balance out the meal.
Chicken Pot Pie must be the nearly perfect winter food. Rich, hearty and comforting. Instead of traditional boiled chicken, peas, carrots, and celery... I chose winter flavors such as roast chicken, wild mushrooms, french green beans and tarragon. What resulted is a super easy, hearty pot pie that pairs perfectly with a nice winter red such as our Pinot Noir.
This is a great comfort dish for cool nights and pairs beautifully with our Pinot Noir! The sausage, ribs and beans are braised in a rich tomato based sauce until moist and fork tender. I serve this in large bowls over a bed of creamy, parmesan polenta.
