I like the summer, but I love the fall. This is the time of year for seasonal deliciousness and lazy Sundays. Your favorite coffee stops have pumpkin muffins. You’re more in the mood for soup and may have placed it back on your grocery list. You are not just washing and eating apples, you are going to farms, picking them, and finding ways to incorporate them into dishes and desserts. Sunday can become a cooking day, or simply feasting on tasty foods while watching football games. Ahh, good times. Hello Vino has some seasonal wine pairings and interesting foods that will color your taste buds.
Here is a preview of what you can find in the free Hello Vino wine app for fall wine pairings. Interested in festive glasses…visit CustomCurling for the one pictured here.
