September is hot and sunny one day and cool and misty the next. Brut is such a great wine because it is so versatile for anytime of year! It is elegant, crisp, and flavorful with light notes of citrus culminating with a nice long finish.
As a stand alone it is perfectly classy, great for any celebration you want to get dressed up and toast the night away… or even dressed down, with a bowl of popcorn and a date with the couch!
Now let’s Mix It Up! All of these recipes don’t have exact measurements so just mix to taste.

Traditions play a big role in making the holiday season so much fun! Here at Wilson Creek, we have a lot of fun with our traditional Wassail we enjoy every year. It’s definitely a crowd pleaser and very popular with our wine club family.
With Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year’s Eve and many other reasons to gather with loved ones, having fun & fresh ideas are always a great compliment to those traditions.
Christmas Cookies are almost compulsory when it comes to the holiday season; one of America’s most popular traditions. Another very popular holiday tradition?… Wine, of course! So why not combine the two and make it that much more special!
Here are a few recipes that will delight your guest’s palates and warm their hearts.
The great thing about traditions is that there is always room to make new ones. So while you’re enjoying the holidays with your loved ones, maybe try a few of these pairings and see if any are worthy of a new tradition.
We have a feeling you won’t be disappointed.
All of us at Wilson Creek Winery warmly wish you a Merry Christmas & a very Happy New Year!
It’s National Sangria Day & Wine Wednesday all on the same day! Go on, celebrate!
