Virtual Holiday Cooking Classes + Wine Pairings

One of the big silver linings of life in quarantine has been having home-cooked meals and enjoying a slower pace of life.

With all things online, we have been trying out new online cooking and baking classes. One of our favorites has been virtual cooking classes on Cakebread Cellers.

2018 Napa Valley Chardonnay:

Known for their Chardonnay, Cakebread Cellars’ iconic wine is the perfect winter varietal for white wine lovers. This wine has a pretty, floral nose with fresh citrus, orange blossom and white peach, but the real treat is in the mouth. The viscosity coats the palate; it is weighty on the tongue yet well-balanced with acidity.

2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon:

A deep and luxurious Cabernet Sauvignon with aromas of ripe boysenberry, dark cherry and cassis, coupled with scents of sweet oak and herbal spice, introduce plush, deeply concentrated, black fruit flavors bolstered by bright acidity and well-structured tannins. This full and bold wine will warm you up on any winter night and makes a perfect pair to a hearty holiday dinner.

For the wine connoisseurs and collectors:

Benchland Select: This is a special blend of five clones of Cabernet Sauvignon from two superior vineyards in the gently sloping western benchlands of Rutherford and Oakville.

The 2017 vintage boasts aromas of dark blackberry, boysenberry and mocha, leading onto the palate of dark fruit, roundness and texture. Concentrated flavors of ripe blackberry and fig dance with firm tannins for a rich blackberry and dark chocolate finish. Enjoy this deliciously bold red with hearty stews, steaks on the grill or fire-roasted vegetables. This elegant wine is available at local wine retailers nationwide (search here to find a shop in your city).
