Three Pairing Ideas for Your Table
Appetizer: Craving a simple yet divine appetizer? Brie is a classic choice for the holidays. You can serve it as the star on a cheese plate with crackers or bake it in the oven with a drizzle of honey, fresh herbs, and seasonal fruit toppings, from apples and cranberries to raspberry jam. Our top pick, however, is red pepper jelly!
Sweet and spicy, this easy Red Pepper Jelly Baked Brie appetizer can be whipped up in minutes and paired with a variety of local Ontario wines, including crisp and fruity white wines.
Wine pairing: Crisp and fruity with notes of lemongrass, citrus and gooseberry, the soft tannins and acidic finish make BASK Sauvignon Blanc a great match with Brie’s creamy texture. The refreshing notes contrast Brie's richness perfectly, leaving your palate craving more.
